Yes, Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition Has Online Play


Capcom’s presentation on Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition, hosted by producer, Yoshinori Ono, just ended a few minutes ago, and answered a few questions that we’d been wondering ever since the title was announced.


First off; yes, the game has worldwide online play. It also includes a neat feature called Channel Live, which allows you to watch other people’s fights as they go at it. With regard to the roster, you’ll have access to all 35 characters from the console versions of Super Street Fighter IV, and each will have three costumes available — the original, Arrange and Super Arrange.


Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition allows you to play the game two ways: the traditional 2D fighting game view (with or without stereoscopic 3D effects enabled) or a 3D view designed to work with stereoscopic 3D turned on. The image above compares the two views.
