Street Fighter to Debut on Consoles Alongside Film Release

50°
319w ago - While Street Fighter IV has seen a limited release in arcades across North America, many of us are waiting for the home console version, which is still without a firm launch date.

We do have an idea of when it'll launch though, as Street Fighter movie producer Patrick Aiello has confirmed in a recent interview that IV will release day and date with the film Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li.

To quote: Capcom is releasing Street Fighter IV in 2009, which is the 20th anniversary of the game. The film and game release dates will coincide, but I'm not certain how much of the game will coincide with the story because ours is a very partitioned off origin story of the Street Fighter universe. So the release dates will coincide, elements between the two will coincide, but in terms of them relating to each other perfectly, I don't believe that's the case.

Fairly sure that the only relation is the characters. Aside from that, totally separate initiatives. At any rate, releasing the game on the day of the film's debut makes sense. Just a little surprised though, considering Resident Evil 5 is also due out in March.
 

Confirmed: Street Fighter Alpha is PSN Bound

50°
320w ago - Capcom is making up, or attempting to at least, for the lack of a Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix BETA on PlayStation 3.

According to the company's senior product manager on all things Street Fighter, this Thursday will see the release of PSOne classic Street Fighter Alpha: Warrior's Dreams on PSN.

As with all previously released PSOne classics, it'll of course be playable on both your PS3 and PSP. No word on pricing, but if history is any indication, $6 is a safe bet.

To quote: Hey all - I recently joined (4 months ago) Capcom's Marketing team as the Senior Product Marketing Manager on Street Fighter IV, so my life is consumed with all things having to do with this awesome franchise (yah, my life sucks).

Before I go on about this "big surprise" John D. mentioned....A bit of self deprecation. I'm an avid gamer (I lined up quarters for SFII and it's sequels) - I promise that I'm no marketing schmuck. I started as a tester for Sega (poor Sega Saturn!) and then Sony, finally ending up in marketing (8 years worth). So I like to think I know something about gaming and marketing (but I probably don't).

Anyway, what's the surprise? The surprise isn't that SFIV is on it's way (duh!)... and that it looks and plays sooo good. I went to the secret Fight Club...
 

Street Fighter's Chun Li Gets Dirty in Film

350°
331w ago - Capcom Japan has released the first photo of Smallville's Kristin Kreuk as Chun Li in Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun Li. As you can see, she's neither wearing her usual blue dress or have her hair wrapped in her trademark cute buns.

Fans shouldn't be surprised, however; the new Street Fighter film hopes to take the video game adaptation more seriously this time around instead of the Van Damme cheeseboulder that snuck up on the world in 1994 like one of Dhalsim's sly reacharounds. We're following Chun Li as she scours Thailand as a street fighter to find her father's killer, M. Bison (Neal McDonough).

Quick note: I don't know how, but she actually looks identical to how I imagined she would look when they announced the project–A dirty street fighter in Thailand, delving into the mucky muck. Street fighting isn't exactly a colorful world with costumes and junk.

Don't worry, though, because one of the storyboards released shows her with the stereotypical hair we all know and love.
 

GTA, GTA II, Street Fighter Alpha Coming To PSN

346w ago - According to the Official US PlayStation Magazine, Grand Theft Auto 1 and 2 are sheduled to hit the PlayStation Network in their original top-down perspective.

The article also mentions that Street Fighter Alpha is on its way to PSN.

No word on when the three titles will hit. Although, what's interesting is that Grand Theft Auto IV is being released on a Thursday, the same day as Sony's weekly PSN update.

Is Rockstar planning to release the two classic GTA titles on PSN the same day of GTA IV's release? Only time will tell, but it's certainly not an unreasonable guess.
 

WTFiction!?: Street Fighter Series

50°
354w ago - Street Fighter IV is on the way, and Capcom tells us that its story is set between the second and third games. What's that, you say? You didn't know the Street Fighter series had a story? Ah, well, it does...but good luck sorting it out. Due to the dozens of characters, each with multiple (and frequently contradictory) endings, it can be tough to know exactly how these things work out. Especially since Capcom isn't saying.

We've given it a try, though. We've grouped most of the World Warriors into categories by motive, clarified their rivalries, and weeded out the completely useless ones. We're still not entirely certain how the overall storyline has gone down, but after extensive play, reading, and research, we're pretty sure it goes like this:

Ryu and Ken participated in the original Street Fighter tournament along with a bunch of scrubs; Ryu defeated Sagat to become the champion. Then M. Bison created the Psycho Drive to conquer the world and grant himself immortality; when the Psycho Drive was destroyed, he initiated the second Street Fighter competition to bring his enemies together and kill them all, only to be thwarted by secret character Akuma. Later, a guy named Gill founded a third version of the tournament, hoping to locate the world's ultimate fighters who would populate his new utopian world....
