Capcom senior VP Christian Svensson revealed in an interview that the downloadable adaptation of Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike has a far bigger budget than Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix.
Svensson bragged, "When I look at Street Fighter III, Street Fighter III is currently our highest budget - at least out of this office - the highest budget digital title we've done. It's higher than (Super Street Fighter II Turbo) HD Remix."
"We're trying to raise the bar in a number of ways, no matter what, every time. Unless it's a straight opportunistic play, we're trying to raise the bar not just for Capcom, but for sort of the sector." He added.
"Somebody's asking, 'A higher budget than HD Remix, even with all the new sprites (for that game)?' Yes, Street Fighter III's budget is higher than HD Remix, even when we had to make all the new sprites for HD Remix."
Svensson stated that more info will be released as E3 approaches, saying, "You will be deluged with information in about four weeks."
No platforms have been announced for Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike, but it's expected to be released on Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network.
