Both Capcom Fighting Evolution
(Capcom Fighting Jam
in Japan) and Capcom vs SNK 2
are available on PlayStation Network in Japan, leaving fighting fans in the US wanting of what was once a bad business idea
. Capcom senior VP Christian Svensson offers a crumb of hope in the Capcom forums
, saying both will be here "eventually."
Svensson says we should hear more about both "next year," and that the "timing will be quite different though from Japan." We can't be sure what he means by the latter statement, but since both saw their reemergence as PS2 Classics
on Japan's PSN months apart, it's possible there won't be such a gap between releases when they finally arrive in these parts.
