Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix Pricing, Availability

I could just write the price here, but how does that entice you to read the full story? OK, fine, it's 15 bucks. You're welcome.

Capcom got all up on the official PlayStation blog this morning with one of the last bits of relevant info on the upcoming 2D action fighting tour de force, Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix.

The game will hit the PlayStation 3 on November 25, a full day earlier than the Xbox 360 version. It'll run $14.99 on the PS3. Since this info was revealed on the Sony blog, they didn't post what it'll cost on Xbox Live Arcade, but 15 bones translates to 1,200 Microsoft bits. Also, it's confirmed that the game won't have trophy support at launch.

A Tuesday release for a PlayStation Network game is pretty out of the ordinary. Normally this stuff gets posted on Thursdays, but I'd imagine no one wanted to come in on Thanksgiving and flip the MAKE GAME GO switch. Still, posting stuff ahead of Microsoft is a pretty good look for Sony. Maybe they should stick to Tuesdays going forward?

In addition to the game, the PlayStation Network will also receive a free, exclusive soundtrack download. This "Street Fighter Underground Remix Soundtrack" is apparently comprised of original songs that were inspired by the Street Fighter series. Artists on the soundtrack include Redman, Hieroglyphics, DJ Qbert, DJ Toure, Zion I, Mistah F.A.B. and Oh No. That already sounds like a great idea.

Over on the 360 side of things, there will be a Street Fighter themed deck download for Uno. I envision a world where draw four cards are accompanied by dragon punch noises. The deck will be released on December 10.

I have to say, it's impressive to see Capcom really going all out with a lot of different reminders about the world of Street Fighter as it prepares to release Street Fighter IV early next year. It's smart, too, as there are probably a lot of people out there with fond memories of the classics that need these sorts of reminders to get ready for February.
