Street Fighter II HD demo on its way

Above: It's only a demo, so perhaps the grating music will be fixed?

The same version we played, with only Ryu, Ken and an assortment of backgrounds available, will be available as a demo sometime after Commando 3 launches this spring. Buying Commando 3 guarantees you a spot in the eight week beta/demo version which, despite lacking most of the fighters, does include a quarter mode, tournaments and ranked play. The final version includes all 17 fighters, the option to play with the new HD sprites or the classic renditions, remixed music and a choice of traditional mechanics versus completely re-tuned balancing for every fighter. Sounds like a purist's dream.

Oh, and bad news PSN users - the beta's for XBLA only.
