New movie's producer mentions Street Fighter 4's release date? Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun Li's producer is saying that the console release of the game will coincide with the movie release in March 2009, celebrating SF's 20 year anniversary.


This conflicts with recent rumors that Street Fighter 4 will see a console release this year.

Rumors aside, it's a pretty good interview and you can check out the full thing here. Here's a quote.
BIZ: Back in 1994, Capcom had the video game movie and then they released a new game based on the movie featuring Jean Claude Van Damme. Are there potential crossovers for you guys with Street Fighter IV?

PA: Capcom is releasing Street Fighter IV in 2009, which is the 20th anniversary of the game. The film and game release dates will coincide, but I'm not certain how much of the game will coincide with the story because ours is a very partitioned off origin story of the Street Fighter universe. So the release dates will coincide, elements between the two will coincide, but in terms of them relating to each other perfectly, I don't believe that's the case.
