Capcom dates online-enabled edition of 1999 arcade fighter for Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network.
Capcom announced Street Fighter III: Third Strike Online at last year's San Diego Comic-Con and took the opportunity at this year's event to date it. The publisher today confirmed that Third Strike Online will arrive on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 downloadable storefronts "beginning August 23."
More than just a port of the 1999 arcade game, Third Strike Online will feature a revamped user interface to take advantage of the HD capabilities and a handful of visual filtering options. Beyond changing the way gamers see the game as they play, Third Strike Online will change the way others see them play with YouTube replay sharing. Capcom is incorporating YouTube functionality into the game that will let players upload their match replays to the video streaming service "with the click of a button."
Capcom is incorporating GGPO technology for the game's online functionality, the same netcode under the hood of the Final Fight: Double Impact package released last year. The publisher has also promised unlockable rewards for the game.
When it arrives, Third Strike will sell for $15 (1,200 Microsoft points). For more on the game, check out GameSpot's previous coverage.
@smoman5000 LOL! You could be right. This is why I am going to chill out on Capcom fighters after I buy Third Strike. I will stay in denial mode until that happens. If a Fourth Strike or EX Plus version does happen I will be the first to commend you for your prediction. But for now it is time to wait for another 3rd Strike reunion for better or worse; however I am rooting for the best.
@vengefulwilberg Lol, if you really think capcom isnt going to continue working on their 2d SF games...then you might not know capcom. This game will have some EX plus version this time next year.
@Pete5506 There is no need to worry. This game is still going to have the original and catchy music. There will also be remixes available.
I'd be interested if I didn't still have the original Xbox version I bought years ago. I just can't buy the same game twice.
I've been waiting for this since they announced it. I should have money on my PSN account to get this once it comes out.
i used to play the hell out of this on my dreamcast, cant wait to finally be able to take the fight online and get owned.
@smoman5000 I don't think Capcom is going to go back to true 2D graphics when they finally decide to move away from Street Fighter 4 for good. SF vs. Tekken and MVC 3 is more 3Dish in a graphical standpoint despite 2D gameplay. Just for lol reasons I am going to say this. Don't jinx us man.
Third Strike was always a favorite of mine. I still got the original. I will definitely get this, so I can relive the good old days and play against my best friend and Third Strike rival. This is one game that will not disappoint. And it will be complete unlike a certain game we all know.
c'mon capcom...you know good and well you could have pushed back original release date another month and put this title out complete.....makes me not want to buy nothing else with capcom on it....
@ml_paladin888 I do remember the laws regarding roms under Bill Clintons reign as President was that you could download and play roms, but only if you own an actual copy of the game as well.
I'll get it. I still have my madcatz gamepads and arcade sticks. lol!! Bring it!! When are they going to bring this to XBLA & PSN? [url]http://ps2.ign.com/articles/712/712358p1.html[/url] I'd pay $20 for that. Make it so Capcom.
This game came out when online play really wuznt as popular as it is 2day. So i will buy this & get my a** whooped with joy.
last i checked you'd be infringing on copyrights by using the ROM on MAME I could be wrong, but I doubt it...
I would play this game over Super Street Fighter 4 any day, just the sheer fact of all the hours I had put into it before brings a tear to my eye and a fire in my belly!
It's pretty hard for me to understand how anyone can find any reason to complain about this game coming to XBLA/PSN. But lo and behold, some of the posters on this thread have.
This game has gorgeous characters and animation. A peak of the hand drawn/animated era of fighters. It'll be great to play in 16x9 and HD.
this is available for free with online support on MAME. If you're pissed at capcom, just download it.
wtf is wrong with capcom lately? Important project canceled, every single one of its own fighter rereleased with a bunch of new things for absurd prices, fans of every of it's own series let down by dumb choices,,, Why capcom you keep screwing with people who loves you? Oo
@servb0ts It's kinda hard to release DLC for a game that already has all of its content right out of the box.
Playing Xbox One games on somebody else's console will also require a check-in every hour. Full Story
