The Japanese Street Fighter 4 blog has confirmed that the game will be available to PC players in the land of the rising sun on July 2, 2009.


From the sounds of the announcement, Japanese PC gamers will get the title first, and if it matches how the North American console editions were rolled out, we should be seeing it about a week later. Capcom U.S.A. is expected to have an official announcement out soon though.

The suggested retail price is listed at 7,340 yen, which when converted to U.S. dollars is almost $74. I don't think this will be the price when it hits American shores, as Amazon has been taking pre-orders for $36.99 for some time, and the console versions were both about $60 when they were first released.

Also the game officially supports Windows XP and Vista users, along with DirectX 9 and 10, plus mouse and keyboard compatibility, but you'd certainly be better off purchasing one of the Mad Catz controllers and using that instead.
