I was very impressed with *Super Street Fighter IV: 3D Edition*. It’s definitely a day one purchase, and the only real star in the Japanese launch line-up. And it seems to be getting better and better. At today’s stage show the game was revealed to feature thirty-five playable characters along with a spectator mode via a “Channel Live” feature that allows up to six people to watch other gamer’s duking it out.
I wasn’t there for presentation (trying to catch up on work at the hotel room) but apparently an online mode is practically confirmed and it could quite possibly be worldwide. The trophy system was also brought up, which allows you to collect in-game figurines by passing people in the street who also have the game saved on their system. You can get a golden Chun-Li figurine when you get the game by using the code: zAAkcHVbHk.
There’s also a new trailer for the game which you can check out after the break.
