SSFIV: Arcade Edition PC out this week

On Steam. In shops next Friday.

The PC version of Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition launches on Steam this Friday, Capcom has told Eurogamer.

The retail version launches in shops a week later, on Friday 15th July.

The PC version of the game hit the headlines last month when Capcom backtracked on its controversial DRM plans.

The game was to be largely unplayable without a persistent internet connection, with only 15 of the 39 fighter available while offline and no save facility.

Capcom insisted at the time the measures were vital for combating piracy and hackers. But a day after the announcement it admitted it misjudged the situation and had duly tweaked its plans.

A video showcasing the first 15 minutes of the Xbox 360 version is below.
