Street Fighter IV fans truly love their Street Fighter characters and combos, a fact that’s obviously not lost on Capcom, which today announced Street Fighter IV’s release date.
Street Fighter IV will ship for PS3 and Xbox 360 on February 17 in North America. Yes, that’s right: just three days after Valentine’s Day 2009. How appropriate; it’ll be a Chun Li love fest all around. The game will launch in Europe three days later, on February 20.
Street Fighter IV brings a radical new look for the franchise, one that’s technically 3D but appears more like the 2D games we all grew up with. To see how its coming along, head over to our Street Fighter IV screenshot gallery.
