Street Fighter comes to XBOX LIVE and PSN

Posted

Bringing the new generation of World Warriors to new consoles, Street Fighter® III: Third Strike Online Edition takes one of the most iconic fighting games of all time online with an arcade perfect re-creation.

Featuring the unique and memorable characters of the Street Fighter III series, GGPO-enabled online allows players to use their technical moves – like the series-defining parry system – in a seamless, arcade-like environment. High-quality, HD-filtered graphics emphasize the smooth animation, a vault of unlockables allow for replayability, and an integrated leaderboard combined with an extensive and viral YouTubeTM Replay Sharing system encourage players to bring their A-game.

Street Fighter® III: Third Strike Online Edition will be available for PSN August 23, 2011 and August 24, 2011 for XBLA.
