Capcom seems to realize just how patiently we’ve all been waiting for Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix, and though their latest communique on the title only says it’s coming “very soon,” they’ve offered some new screenshots to dissuade any of you from keying their cars.

“We’ll be making an announcement about that relatively soon,” he says. And what about downloadable content? “That’s one of the things we’re thinking about right now. We do get that question a lot, and people seem to want it, so it’s possible that it’s something we would like to respond to.
