Street Fighter on Virtual Console goes online [UPDATE]


9:00 PM on 11.12.2011



[Update: According to Capcom Unity, this is also coming to Europe and the States. I still think it's a case of "too little, too late," but at least the West isn't getting completely screwed over again.]

Son of a less than classy lady. Those Japanese and their damn preferential treatment.

What has been the biggest complaint with the Wii's Virtual Console? That the games released for it are untouched? That no effort is made to enhance them for greater accessibility in today's interconnected world? Sure, other platforms like PSN and XBLA have added online play to several pieces of legacy software, but their retro library is not as expansive as the Wii's. It's a shame more wasn't done to freshen up these old classics.

Well, guess what? The VC release of the Genesis version of Super Street Fighter II has Wi-Fi capabilities in the Land of the Rising Sun. So did Puyo Puyo earlier this year, in fact. Are either of these games coming to the West? Of course not. Western devils don't deserve more than the bare minimum of effort. Street Fighter will. Not that anyone is still buying Virtual Console games anymore for this to matter.

This is so stupid. Why couldn't stuff like this happen earlier in the console's life and on a global scale? It could have possibly grown the popularity of the Virtual Console and resulted in publishers' offering even more of their back catalogs. Why wait until the Wii is effectively dead? I just don't get it.

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate brings a lot of verticality to the table

When the west finally gets Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate -- what Capcom calls "the most complete version of 4 that it'll get" -- players are going to need to turn their attention to the layering of the game. Rather...more

Resident Evil: Revelations 2 raises more questions than answers

My time with Resident Evil: Revelations 2 at Tokyo Game Show was brief -- maybe 20 minutes if we're being generous. Swiftly dumped into the beginning of the game, I was left to try to unravel the mystery of what exactly ...more

Sonic x Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate is, uh, yeah...

Admittedly, this collaboration is slightly less horrifying once you realize it's a Felyne (or Palico, if you want to be precise) wearing Sonic the Hedgehog armor. Slightly. Still, I think this tops the sexy/stretchy fan art f...more
