Have you been lacking something in your life? Do you need a pick me up? Well, I have something that probably won’t fill that void in your life, but should pick just about anyone up that used to drop tokens into arcade games like some 90 year old at a slot machine in Vegas: Street Fighter III Third Strike. That’s right, Street Fighter III is back and Capcom has been kind enough to confirm it will be rolling onto your nearest Playstation 3 and/or Xbox 360 on August 23, 2011.
So, if like me, you enjoyed those days in an overcrowded arcade slamming joysticks and screaming at the screen, Street Fighter III promises to deliver all of those wonderful memories and more. Capcom has loaded this baby up with all kinds of new online play and bonus extras like never before. Only this time, you can scream at you own TV, in the comfort of your own home, and probably without getting arrested. So do yourself a favor and block out a few hours on August 23 and drop the $14.99 (On XBLA) for the 1200MS points. There is no official cost out for PS3 at this time, but expect it to be pretty close leaving you with only one thing to do: PREPARE TO FIGHT!
