Akuma's Street Fighter II HD makeover


Last week we got our first look at Ken from the upcoming 1080p remake of Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix and today Udon Comics has given us a look at SFII badass, Akuma. Just like Ken before him, Akuma's HD treatment looks absolutely amazing and sports an incredible amount of detail. The artists at Udon have really done an awesome job at updating the geriatric sprites -- these new shots look almost too good to be true. According to the post on the Capcom blog site though, the images are straight from the game with the backgrounds removed, which bodes fantastically for the final product. Luckily, SSFIITHDR is coming out later this year so we don't have long to wait until we get our high-def Hyduken on.

2. He was in Super street fighter 2 turbo I think. Playable with a secret code. I had it for the 3DO. This new sprite looks awesome. I can't wait to see the full roster redrawn. Kudos Capcom. I will buy this the second its released for my PS3.

4. I would sell my house for an HD version of Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike.

Anybody who's played MKII online want to comment on how the lag is on PSN? I'd hate to have a game like this, where every frame is important, be ruined by stuttery gameplay.

5. Do you think Capcom will ever release Marvel vs. Capcom on the PSN? That would be so much better than this HD remix with online multiplyer.

6. I use verizon fios and have only had 1 or 2 matches that were unplayable due to lag. I've played about 100 or so matches. About 20-30 were lag free and perfect. The rest had a bit of noticeable delay but was still pretty playable.

7. Thanks, Xiru. Sounds like SFIIHD will be fine then, but Sega was probably wise to exclude online play in a game as precise as VF5.

8. When is this game coming out? Nobody has ever mentioned a release date for this.

Capcom keeps teasing us about the high def makeover, but what about a date and price?

9. i think his "heaven" symbol looks better on the old sprite.
