Disappointing it does not have redrawn sprites but still...a classic is a classic and the backgrounds were apparently higher res than the old tech could display so they should look better than ever...

if they indeed just had re done the animation and drawing to a high res version it was a insta buy for me(iam new to the series).

Shame that this can be another Not-Available-in-Japan SF title(SSF2THDR is not playable in Japan because Capcom US strangely has the right of SF franchise).

so many people play this game I have no doubt HDremix and SF4 are gonna feel a huge dent in online play.

Watch them charge $20 for it. (And yes it's cheaper than the ridiculous prices for console versions, but it could be even cheaper.)

Badass! I don't give a crap about redrawn sprites, this game is classic and should be played the way it was originally designed. By all means, give us a MvC3 with new high-def sprites, but if anyone out there is buying this game for the graphics they're in completely the wrong genre.

Meh, I have my dreamcast plugged in, this does nothing for me. Next time they better update the animations and graphics like KOF is doing.

the only reason i appreciate this offering, is that i'm getting what was an incredibly rare game, for much much less then what it was going for on ebay. will definately be checking out the demo.

Well, it's pretty ugly. Considering how long it took SF2THDRemix to be made with its fairly small roster, I'm not surprised they aren't redrawing the massive number of sprites for this though.
I remember it being fairly fun in short stints on the Dreamcast, but it was far too hectic and FAR too unbalanced for any long term play.

it wont be that hard, all the BC are 3d and remastering the characters os not that hard
