Some release details for the latest instalment in Capcom’s Street Fighter series have emerged, and in part they are extremely surprising. Famitsu confirms it will be a multiplatform release for the PS3, Xbox360 and, oddly enough, the PC. Details of the price and release date for each platform are unfortunately yet to be announced. The article also carries some details of a tawdry Hollywood cash in, which I will not bore you with.
This seems a very surprising, and probably welcome, move. Though in practical terms a PC release probably doesn’t mean much other than having to mess around buying an adapter for your joystick, it is nice to see the PC included in things, especially for that most neglected of PC genres, the fighting game.
Perhaps this is a rare positive influence on the PC gaming scene by way of the Xbox development environment (ports are said to be trivial), or maybe Capcom have something planned?
