Street Fighter IV Console Ship Date Set for US, Europe

SFIV-ShipDateSet.jpg

Early next year is shaping up to be just as full on major game releases as this holiday season. Joining the growing Q1 09 game lineup is Street Fighter IV, which Capcom today announced is being prepped to ship on February 17th in North America and a few days later in Europe on February 20th for PS3 and Xbox 360. No date yet on the PC version, but in their note to me this morning Capcom provided advanced notice that some more big announcements are on the way over the next couple of weeks, so you’ll want to stay tuned (hopefully a Bionic Commando date is one of those announcements too…).

A new SFIV trailer introducing Gouken has been released in accompaniment with the ship date announcement. Check it out on the jump.
