Capcom Announce Street Fighter 3rd Strike: Online Edition

By Ishaan . July 24, 2010 . 12:37pm


After asking fans to look forward to the 3DS version of Super Street Fighter IV at his panel at the San Diego Comic-Con, producer, Yoshinori Ono, revealed that he is working on an online edition of Street Fighter 3rd Strike.


While the game won’t be releasing any time soon, as development only began recently, Ono asks that fans voice their requests for the online edition at Capcom’s community site. Ono is open to adding new features to the game.


Capcom have yet to announce how many platforms the game will be made available for, but it’s safe to assume it will appear on the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 at the very least. A re-release of Street Fighter 3rd Strike has been a topic addressed by Capcom USA — who are primarily responsible for spearheading the company’s fighting game projects — on numerous past occasions as well.

    Dang. I thought this was going to be Comuken.

  • Kris

    Sold. Day one.

  • ForeverFidelis

    This comic-con was so disappointing..

    I wanted A new Darkstalkers, and at the very most MML3…

    Tekken vs Street Fighter?

    I really couldn’t give less of a damn..

      a) It’s COMICcon. It’s a treat to get any non-comic related game news anyway, this year’s was WAY more game focused than ever before. b) Waaah sour grapes. You got a strong hint at MML3, info on Megaman Universe, more MvC3 details, announcements of a massive pair of crossover fighters, confirmation of a new online version of a truly classic fighting game, some SSF4 tidbits (new costumes). If you really like Capcom and this doesn’t interest you at all, I don’t know what to say other than hope ya have fun complaining when I’m playing all these new super fan-oriented Capcom games.Keep supporting fighting games and we’ll get Darkstalkers. Ono certainly seems to want to make it, if people continue to prove there’s a market (by buying MvC3, the SFxTekken games, etc.) it’s gonna happen.

  • I’m all for this, but I really expected something more exciting.

  • Code

    I think my friends will be blown away by this news >ww<

    • RupanIII

      Yea I kno some big SF ppl who will be really happy about this. I’m not huge on SF but I might pick it up myself since it seems to be everyone’s fave

  • I don’t exactly HATE SFIII, but I don’t like it enough to want to actually buy this. I guess for all the people who are fans of the game, this is great news, but I’m VERY underwhelmed by this.

    Would have much rather it been Darkstalkers…

    • With the way that Ono keeps going on about loving Darkstalkers and wanting to do another one, well, I’ll be damned surprised if we don’t get a new one (or at least a Vampire Savior port) eventually. As long as that is the case (getting Darkstalkers at one point or another) I for one will be happy. =P

  • Way to go using a second impact screenshot.

    • Zefiro Torna

      The little mistake of using a 2nd Impact screenshot got me thinking how nice it would be to have a version of 3rd Strike with the stages and music tracks from New Generation and 2nd Impact. Also perhaps, the ability to chose every character variant from all Street Fighter III iterations, like Hyper Street Fighter II allowed.

      Looks like I got a request to send to Capcom now: turn this into a Hyper Street Fighter III.

      • Well the problem with that is, 2nd impact is even more imbalanced and broken than 3rd strike.

  • RAVENKam

    If they redraw the sprites in HD, I’m in.

  • FireCouch

    Can’t wait.

  • Scallion

    I can’t believe Capcom would make a rehash of one of their games just to make a quick cash-in!
    Do we really need to see yet *another* Street Fighter game this year, or even the next?
    This is sort of annoying.

    • cowcow

      Welcome to the 90’s

      • Scallion

        Hey, at least we had almost a year’s wait before they squirted out Street Fighter Neo Super Turbo Tournament Edition or whatever. This is starting to turn into a bi-monthly affair.

  • 3rd Strike will use GGPO like how HD Remix uses it, most likely.

    Lag mind games, son!

  • Why capcom rehash their older game? I don’t think anyone want to play this.

    • “I don’t think anyone want to play this.”

      It’s 3rd Strike with online play.

      You couldn’t be more wrong, lol.

      • Couldn’t this already be played online? I’m pretty sure I used to play it online on my Xbox. Street Fighter Aniversary Edition? Oh yeah… Xbox Live is gone.

    The balance tweaks to HD Remix were good, I’d like the same kind of tweaks in 3S (one in particular, I’d be interested in seeing the return of Dudley’s Thunderbolt leaping attack from 2I, just like it returned in SSF4). IDK about a straight up “Hyper SF3” with different selectable characters from the versions – it kind of made Hyper SF2 and Vampire Chronicle feel a little less worthy of serious play to me – too much potential for imbalance, and many of the older characters/game mode combos feeling useless. Particularly since in those two compilations, you played entirely in the newest game’s engine, and even the single player modes had no actual game system select (stuck in the Vampire Savior/SSF2T system and any CPU players used the newest version with no option to change).

    Having the SF3/2I backgrounds/music as options would be cool too.

    This will be my 5th purchase of 3S (Japanese DC, PS2 versions, US PS2 and Xbox SF Anniversary Collection), but I don’t mind a bit. As one of my two favorite games ever, along with Alpha 2, I’m happy to continue supporting it.
