Thanks to ShackNews for pointing out Capcom's announcement of Hyper Street Fighter II X for PlayStation 2, which is due out this December in Japan, and will be properly showcased at the Tokyo Game Show later this month. Since Capcom are celebrating the 15th anniversary of the Street Fighter series, it's likely the game will sport a best-of character roster - although, as ShackNews notes, "...you gotta admire Capcom's ability to create ever-more-ridiculous Street Fighter names (although personally, my favorite is still Street Fighter EX 2 + Alpha)." While awaiting the official unveiling, you can check out the original series via classic RePlay arcade magazine scans from SNK-Capcom.com.
