Playing Street Fighter on a console is all well and good, but there’s just something special about playing it on an arcade machine. Maybe it’s the atmosphere, maybe it’s the different control scheme, maybe it’s the fact you’ll have to pop in more quarters if you lose, but it’s just a whole different experience. So Street Fighter IV fans will be pleased to know that Capcom is preparing an arcade release of Super Street Fighter IV to accompany the console releases.

Yoshinori Ono, producer of Street Fighter IV confirmed the arcade release. Ono was attending an April, 2010, 3v3 Street Fighter IV National Championship Tournament in Japan, and made the Super Street Fighter IV arcade announcement there. Capcom decided that an arcade release of the updated version of the game would be profitable enough to warrant the time and effort to carry it out. (Like there was ever any doubt.) Capcom hasn’t announced when the Super Street Fighter IV machines will begin appearing in Japanese arcades.

The Super Street Fighter IV release only applies to Japan, but that doesn’t completely rule out a worldwide release of Super Street Fighter IV arcade machines. As Kotaku points out, only the hard drives on a Street Fighter IV arcade machine will need to be swapped to make it a Super Street Fighter IV machine. And even if it isn’t released in North America, sometimes more prominent arcades will import arcade cabinets from Japan. In the meantime, Super Street Fighter IV will be released on the PS3 and Xbox 360 on April 27, 2010.
