David Sirlin, designer and competitive gamer extraordinaire, has updated his blog with a few new details
regarding Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix
. Apparently, amidst all the hoopla surrounding the announcement of Street Fighter IV
, we've overlooked the fact that SF2HD
was actually playable(!) at Capcom Gamer's Day in London, albeit with only Ken and Ryu selectable.SF2HD
is newly re-balanced from the original, and features "tons of changes" according to Sirlin. The HD remix will also now include support for widescreen 16:9, and feature remixed music. And, as originally hoped
, included in the package will be an arcade-perfect version of Super Street Fighter II Turbo
, with no changes made.
In order to achieve the best online fighting experience possible, Capcom is attempting to duplicate (rather than license) the networking technology of GGPO
, which attempts to streamline online gameplay in fighting games for the least lag possible. Sirlin himself is a game designer currently hard at work balancing the gameplay of SF2HD
, so when he says it's looking great, he would know.
