Xbox 360

Sneak peak at Street Fighter 2: Hyper Fighting


It’s probably one of the most anticipated titles coming to the Xbox Live Arcade and it comes out tomorrow. Capcom’s Street Fighter 2: Hyper Fighting is an arcade port of the classic game, now with online play. We had a chance to play the game over at ComicCon and it is as fluid as ever. The only real “problem” with the game is the control set up with the standard 360 controller. Using the trigger buttons is awkward at first, but the problem can be solved by remapping buttons to the four face buttons. Or for the hardcore there’s always the option of picking up Hori’s Dead or Alive 4 arcade stick, which works with Hyper Fighting too. Below is a fast video of a local two player match.

bzr points out the bad news. It is actually Galaga that’s getting released today NOT Street Fighter 2: Hyper Fighting, which is coming out next week. Sorry about the mix up everyone.
