Daigo: Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo HD Remix would be a hit in Japan Usually Street Fighter titles are released in Japan first and hit the United States and other places later on down the road. Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo HD Remix didn't follow this formula and to date hasn't even been released in Japan — at least by conventional means.


Daigo Umehara, Evo Street Fighter 4 champion, thinks Capcom would have a hit on their hands if they were to make the game available to Japanese players with an arcade release, according to Sirlin.net.

Daigo went on to add that in Japan, the console version isn't as important to the competitive scene as an arcade release, since arcades are still very popular over there.

While this won't affect the majority of the English speaking audience, opening up the game to hardcore fans over there would help draw in more players from other countries to compete at tournaments and contribute more content to the community.

Capcom typically responds when they feel there's enough interest to justify the business costs, so we'll see if players in Japan can generate enough buzz to get the title released.
