Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix - XBL and PSN





Quote:
You may have read about the upcoming, remastered version of Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo that will be coming out on both the XBox Live Arcade and the PS3’s online service. Since the initial announcement, we have learned a few more details and I’ve been able to piece together my thoughts on the developments.

First of all, Gamekult posted a “confidential” slide from the Capcom press conference that actually showed off the new Ryu sprite and how it compared to the original sprite in addition to the previous standard of high-resolution fighters, Guilty Gear X.

I took the liberty of cleaning up that slide and adding some fresh comparisons so that it is easier to see the difference. I’ve even added the Ryu sprite from Street Fighter 3 — the largest Ryu sprite until this generation.ryu-sprites.jpg

When I laid my eyes on this new sprite, I really had to do a double take to make sure that I was reading it correctly. But indeed, the new character sprites for SSF2T HD are so big and detailed, they don’t look like sprites at all. It looks like one of my remake dreams that I thought would never come true is actually becoming a reality.

As good as this single sprite looks, the true test will be seeing it in action. The number of frames in the character animation can make a huge difference. If they could exceed the animation in Street Fighter 3, I suppose that would be excellent.

It is also worth mentioning that the new sprites and artwork featured in this high definition remake is by UDON, the masterminds behind Capcom’s beautiful Street Fighter and Darkstalkers comic books.

When an iconic game like Street Fighter 2 receives such an overhaul, there is bound to be some gamers that are concerned. I thought this was addressed well by this comment made by Velops on the ******* post…

“There is also a risk that fans will not like the changes made to the animations. Hardcore fans have honed their skills based upon the the exact number frames for each attack animation. This includes hitbox sizes, reaction, and recovery times. If the change is noticeable, it could completely change the tiers for competitive online play.”

At the same time, I don’t think people should get too worried. Those dedicated to the original version will still have it to enjoy for their tournaments. Plus, there is nothing wrong with learning something new. A true fighting master should be able to learn different battle systems and adapt accordingly.

To ease the worry about how authentic this remake will feel, David Sirlin has confirmed that he is working on this project. He has worked on ports of Street Fighter 2 before and is an expert at the game himself.

Needless to say, I’m more that glad to see this true high-definition remake process turn into a continuing trend. Obviously, it would not be practical for every game, but it would be great to see some of the truly great games get a high-def makover while keeping the original feel intact. (High-res Sonic Trilogy, anyone?)

In case you missed it, we have an ongoing conversation about the Street Fighter remake going on in the forums. I’d love to hear your thoughts!

Becuase its probably like 10megs, and putting it on a DVD or BD would kinda be pointless.

Well our Xbox is definitely not modded in anyway at all...

If that is the reason then I'll be spitting tacks.

Well I finally called Xbox live support and discovered that Telstraclears cable apparently no longer supports Xbox live without a router - which really pisses me off because they could have advised us that it was changing...

If anybody is interested that is...

What does "without a router" mean, in the context?

Well we were plugging straight from our cable modem into our Xbox - and I've now been told that we need a router as a direct connection from our cable modem to the xbox will no longer work on a Telstra cable connection. Thats my understanding of it anyway - I guess I'll have to call Telstra at some point to talk about it but seeing as I've never actually gotten through to a human at telstra I don't hold out too much hope...

Ummm, I'll believe it when I see it running? Even with large sprites the animation could end up being lously. Tha would kill the game.

Ummm what do you mean bannings - as I said above it was a change (apparently) to how the Telstra cable works that I now need a router. Nothing to do with Xbox live or M$ as far as I can tell. Thankfully Scummy has offered me the use of a router so I'll see if that fixes it for us.

I believe they've said they have to leave the animation as it was, so as to not change the game balance or pacing at all.
