Big deal, isn't SF2 one of the highest selling SNES games already? Besides, it's only shitty World Warrior, they couldn't even be bothered releasing Turbo or SSF2 which were far better than the original SF2. Who knows, they could have even sourced old cartridges themselves and just rehoused them in new shells. I am not convinced until someone takes one apart - if I see 1990s date stamps on the chips or the internals of a Chinese pirate cart it's complete bullshit as far as I am concerned. Anyone can put a PCB in a new cartridge shell.

I would much rather see them see re-release the Megaman games on the SNES. Aside from X1, the SNES games of that franchise are ridiculously rare and even more ridiculously expensive (even X1 goes for $100+ in Australia just for a loose cartridge, mainly due to its collectable status; MM7 and X2 cost several hundred and a PAL version of X3 costs more than a car), meanwhile the Super Famicom versions are a dime a dozen, go figure. That said, I would have no idea where they would source CX4 chips 20+ years after they were last manufactured - they were used for the wireframe 3D effects in X2 and X3.

The only SNES games that probably wouldn't make it are Megaman's Soccer and Rockman & Forte (aka Megaman & Bass), the latter of which only exists on the GBA outside Japan, and the former which was a rush job and left the factory unfinished.

All said, it looks like the re-release will be US NTSC only anyway just to screw over owners of PAL consoles with their stupid lockout chips - Capcom simply loves screwing over the PAL region.
