I'll put all my money on all the above, but NOT on a Seth appearance.

And there is a cameo by a certain "Chief" in the arcade version.

Wish this game would just appear and be done with it.

So February the 27th is the worldwide release of the home console version.

To coincide with the new movie.

Feb 27th! I can't wait that long!
according to Capcom Akuma might be playable in the arcade version at the end of this month. Wonder how (un)balanced he will be.

While I wait for the game to be released at least tons of gameplay videos have begun to surface:

Shows of most of the characters, as well as alternate outfits as well. Just makes me want it all the more...

Box art has been revealed:

Chun-Li for the US and Ryu for Europe, the 360 versions are exactly the same but obviously with Microsoft branding.

I don't really like that as box art. Could be so much cooler....

I don't mind it, Ryu looks like he's been tw@tted a few too many times in the nose but I can live with that! :lol: I

I do think the Chun-Li cover is better, the Jap version will have the most amazing art ever I should imagine

Cover art is alright, not the greatest thing ever but since I want the game so bad I'm not to bothered about it either way.

Wonder how his moves will differ from Ken/Ryu/Akuma.

The Chun-Li artwork is awesome, the Ryu artwork on the other hand....

I prefer the Chun Li one.

And even though it would have maybe cost a little more, I reckon they could/should do some limited edition runs of the other characters.

I want Vega!

Blanka for the Xbox version, his skin would match the box colour :D
