Ever since we first caught wind of the upcoming Street Fighter IV revival late last year, it hasn’t been easy to just sit back and wait. While it hasn’t gotten any easier, we finally do have a time frame in terms of when we can expect this inevitable gem to hit consoles here in the US. Drumroll please… This winter! In a recent conversation with GameSpot, Capcom stated that the highly anticipated sequel 10 years in the making would “definitely” be hitting shelves this winter. What’s more, all of our European friends need not worry as Capcom also made it clear that SFIV will be available throughout Europe “at roughly the same time as the US.” The updated graphics and game play look intense, the new characters look intense and word that the non-playable boss characters will make it from the arcade version to the console game is icing. So sit tight people – assuming our economy doesn’t completely collapse in the mean time, SFIV will be hitting Amazon et al before you know it.
