I love how the street sign is almost looking down upon him.

2008 is looking to be the Year of the Street Fighter or is it the Year of the Rat… I always get those two mixed up. With Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix on its way to XBLA and PSN and Street Fighter IV in the works, it looks like fans of Chun-Li’s ever increasing thighs will have something big to cheer about… literally.

If you’ve been under a rock and haven’t been keeping up with these new games, there’s some awesome videos of gameplay and interviews for Street Fighter IV as well as lots of before and after shots for Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix. Needless to say I am very impressed and intrigued by how well both ventures are turning out. My only wish was that they would add additional frames of animation to Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix so it could be more fluid like Street Fighter III. But I do understand that if you do that, then its play mechanics will not be true to the original source.

None the less, things are looking sweet!
