Capcom have been quick to respond to fears that the Australian releases for thier upcoming titles would be delayed, following reports that their intended Aussie distributor Red Ant Enterprises had entered external administration. Here's the good word:
Capcom would like to state it does not expect any such delays and to reconfirm the following release dates: Street Fighter IV (PS3&360) – February 20th, Dead Rising: Chop Till You Drop (Nintendo Wii) – February 27th, Resident Evil 5 (PS3 & 360) – March 13th. Future titles such as MotoGP (Nintendo Will) and Neopets Puzzle Adventure (DS, Wii & PC) are all scheduled to release in line with other PAL territories.
Exactly who will be taking over Australian distribution has not yet been revealed. Other publishers affected who are yet to clarify their position include Midway, Konami and Bethesda but given Capcom's casual response, it's likely that we won't be missing anything from these guys either.
Now that February 20th can be well and truly marked on your calendar's for console Street Fighter 4 goodness, it's safe to stay excited. Helping to bring spirits back up, Capcom today released a superb new trailer for the hotly anticipated title.
Running for 5 minutes, the latest trailer is a stylistic showcase of all the game's known playable characters, from the iconic Ken, Ryu and Chun Li to newcomers Abel and El Fuerte. Check it out right here
