During the Isshuu Sengeki Cup in Tokyo earlier tonight, Capcom and Taito made a special announcement regarding the future of their relationship in Japanese arcades.
The two companies revealed that a handful of classic Capcom fighters will be making their way to Taito’s NESiCAxLive arcade system. Hyper Street Fighter II, Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike, Street Fighter Zero 3 (known as Street Fighter Alpha 3 in North America), and Vampire Savior (Darkstalkers 3 outside of Japan) are set to be distributed through the network, complete with widescreen support.
A mobile site will also be launched to collect battle records as well as player names and their accumulated points.
While a concrete release date was not discussed at this time, attendees at the Taito’s upcoming Osaka qualifiers on August 30 will be able to take part in a public test and provide feedback.
