If Street Fighter X Tekken isn't your cup of hadoken, perhaps the other game Capcom announced over the weekend is. At its panel during San Diego Comic-Con, series producer Yoshinori Ono revealed Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike Online Edition, a downloadable version of the 1999 Dreamcast fighter.
Few details have been released about this resuscitation. At the panel, Ono said that the team is "going to take [its] time to bring [it] out," and we shouldn't expect it in the "immediate future." Ono didn't bother with even the smallest of specifics like the game's media-type or if it's a creation along the lines of Street Fighter II HD Remix.
Eurogamer discovered that it was a "downloadable title" this morning, but the gigantic mystery--what the "Online" part of the name really means--is still unanswered. Could it possibly allude to network support? Online fighting? Is that even possible? Oh wait. Yes, of course it's possible. Uh... let's just call that "mystery solved" and move forward, cool?
The current talk is that work on Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike Online Edition is just getting underway. Ono seemed to allude to this during the panel prefacing his release expectation comments with, "Now that I have announced it, the company can't stop us." No, sir, I bet they can't.
