This unique Beta version of Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix will allow players to select from one of two Street Fighter characters, either Ryu or Ken, and battle online. This Beta test will help Capcom stress-test the network code underlying the incredible online features that power the multiplayer modes of the game. Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix Beta online modes include Player or “Quarter” Match, Ranked Match, and Tournament Mode, as well as offline, local two-player matches (but that’s much less fun, isn’t it?). The Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix Beta will run for approximately eight weeks, ending around August 20 or whenever we decide that we’ve had enough people using cheap moves on us online.
To gain access to the Beta:
- Buy Wolf of the Battlefield: Commando 3 for 800 MS Points
- Select the “SFII HD Remix Beta” option on the main menu of Wolf
- You will be taken to a download blade where you can confirm your download (this will not be visible until the code is live on Arcade tomorrow)
- Once the Beta has finished downloading, head to the “Games” blade on your 360
- Fire up SSFIITHDR in the Demos section on the Games blade and enjoy the online multiplayer goodness!
