Street Fighter III: Third Strike Online release dates, plus new trailer with big letters and lots of lens flare

Capcom has released the release dates for Street Fighter III: Third Strike Online Edition - August 23 on PSN and August 24 on XBLA. There's also this new trailer for the game, which has lots of blinding lens flare and big wobbly words floating above some kind of solar-storm background. It's pretty intense.


A pretty sexy package. Three graphic filters - Classic, HD Widescreen and Arcade (which looks to use the original 4:3 resolution and simulates an old cabinet tube monitor). Online tournaments and Spectator mode are in, as is SFIV's brilliant Trials mode (i.e. character training), live streaming replays and instant YouTube upload abilitization. Plus, it seems like there'll be a stack of unlockables. Yes. Sexy package.

    @GhoulxScout13 I wouldn't really see it as a weak line up (except Sean, I hate him), it's just something that Street Fighter fans aren't really accustomed to. I personally think it's a great roster, and if I could only add one more person to that would be...Skullomania.

    This game is one of the key reasons as to why I still play my dreamcast on a daily bases, so needless to say, this will be a day one purchase for me. Although I can't help but note, that while this is the best playing street fighter title, I've always felt that it had a weak character line up.

    That upload straight to youtube seems really neat. I never had the chance to play this game but was always impressed by the visuals and characters.

    This is THE best Street Fighter game. I really wish they would have modeled Street Fighter IV from this. Also wondering, is Gill going to be unlocked from the get-go? I don't feel like having to beat the game with every single character to unlock a person that I hate using. I just want him unlocked for the self satisfaction of him filling a void in the roster.

    If only I was actually good at fighting games...

    Do want. This is possibly the best Street Fighter game I've ever played.

    Oooh, I never managed to find this on the Dreamcast (only double impact)

    Intense indeed. Only question is do I have room for yet another Street Fighter game in my collection?
  • fatdog12300 - July 21, 2011 11:09 a.m.

    I'll definitely be getting this, it looks amazing.

    And only 15$ I can't wait
