Capcom has announced what appears to be a downloadable Street Fighter III game, which is likely to appear on the likes of Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network. There’s few details of the game (originally released in the arcades and on SEGA’s Dreamcast), which is titled Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike Online Edition, but, given that title, the game will likely expand on the online options that were featured in the Street Fighter III that was included in Street Fighter: Anniversary Collection.

Producer Yoshinori Ono had this to say at Comic-Con: “It’s not going to come out in the immediate future, but just let everyone know that Street Fighter 3 is coming back.”

Let’s hope that the game will receive the update treatment in the same vein as the gorgeous Street Fighter II’ Hyper Fighting.
