Street Fighter Alpha 2 Pummels Into PSN’s PlayStation Classics (Update: And 3!)

By Spencer . October 20, 2008 . 10:05am

sfa2 Sony recently created a custom storefront for Capcom and someday the PsOne version of Street Fighter Alpha 2 will be on there. The ESRB rated Street Fighter Alpha 2 as a PlayStation 3 / PSP game locking it in as an upcoming PlayStation Classics release. This doesn’t mean we’re going to see Street Fighter Alpha 2 as a downloadable game anytime soon though. Konami’s Castlevania Chronicles, Suikoden have yet to materialize and it took Street Fighter Alpha a full eight months after the ESRB rating to get a proper release. Now that Capcom has a store PsOne classics make trickle in more often or Capcom could hold Street Fighter Alpha 2 as a future surprise to go along with the launch of Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix. Let’s see what comes out first the PsOne game as a digital download or the disappointing Super Nintendo port.

 

Update: As Yurinka commented (thanks!) Street Fighter Alpha 3 also appears as a PSP / PlayStation 3 game in the ESRB database which means it’s also coming out as a PlayStation Classic. Interesting, but I’ll stick with Street Fighter Alpha 3 MAX which Capcom released for the PSP back in 2006.

    Sweet, though wouldn’t it better to have Alpha 2′/Gold instead? I like the music in normal Alpha 2 more but ‘ had some cool extras.

    I KNEW IT ALL ALONG! (Of course, so did everybody else ;)

    Street Fighter Alpha 2′ Gold only came as part of the Street Fighter Collection, which had SSF2T and SFA2′G, so I don’t see that happening unless they release the Collection Set.

    Hey, Street Fighter Alpha 3 also appears as a PlayStation classic in the ESRB site.

    “Street Fighter Alpha 2′ Gold only came as part of the Street Fighter Collection, which had SSF2T and SFA2′G, so I don’t see that happening unless they release the Collection Set.”

    Wrong. It was also released on Street Fighter Alpha Anthology for PS2.

    Personally, I think Capcom should’ve reworked them, as not only are they not arcade-perfect (especially SFA 1 and 2), but there’s no online support, and this series is begging for it.

    Since I already have the Alpha anthology, I’ll pass on this one.

    Well, I meant in terms of being able to be a PSOne Classic. I should’ve chosen my words more appropriately. But SSA Anthology will not be downloadable on the PSN Store ever.

    Whatever, what I want is a Capcom v.s. SNK collection. With Part 1,2 and PRO.
