Super Street Fighter II Coming to Virtual Console with Online Play
Though the game has seen release elsewhere in HD, Nintendo's barren Virtual Console landscape is getting a notable addition.
Wii fans holding out for a new Virtual Console addition hopefully won't have to wait much longer. Capcom is currently working on preparing the Genesis/Mega Drive version of Super Street Fighter II for release on the platform. Despite being released remastered in HD on XBLA and PSN, the game is still due to hit the Wii to capture the rest of the market in its original form - well, mostly. Online play is being integrated into the experience, allowing both US and EU gamers to go online with this well-regarded classic.
At this time, it's unknown what netcode will drive the online play or when the game will be released in each of the planned regions. For now, hopeful fans will just have to wait a while longer for more details on its release.
