Super SF4’s Looking More Super All the Time

0

I gave Capcom some shit back when they announced Super Street Fighter 4 in what seemed like mere weeks after releasing Street Fighter 4, but I must say they’re certainly trying to justify you buying a second copy. This new trailer for the redux came out earlier today, and apparently the game will include:

? New combos
? New costumes for all characters
? One of those costumes turns Zangief into a robot, which is awesome
? New characters, including Adon from Alpha and Cody and Guy from Final Fight
? Some other shit

And that’s in addition to Dee Jay, T. Hawk and Juri, and the car-smashing and barrel-breaking bonus stages. If getting my ass handed to me by 13-year-olds on Xbox Live didn’t make me want to go on a violent murder spree ending with my suicide, I’d pick this thing up when it comes out on March 31 in a heartbeat.
