Capcom has revealed that downloadable game Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix has sold over 250,000 units since its launch on Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network in November.

These results have apparently broken both day-one and week-one sales records for console downloadable content, and will also likely break 30 day sales records as well, according to comments made by Capcom spokesperson John Diamonon on community website Capcom Unity.

Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix is a remake of Super Street Fighter II Turbo, created by U.S. company Backbone Entertainment. Also involved in the project were Canadian comic book creators Udon Entertainment, who designed the new high-resolution 2D artwork. Similarly, fan collective OverClocked ReMix were brought in to create the newly arranged music.

In thanking the development and marketing teams involved, Diamonon also praised the hardcore Street Fighter community “who kept this game relevant for the past 15 years and spread the word to the entire gaming industry that Street Fighter is still the 'best around'!"

According to Diamonon, the game is likely to become Capcom's highest-grossing digital title ever, especially as a European release for the PlayStation 3 version has still yet to be arranged.
