Liquid Media Buys Rights to 65 Abandoned Acclaim Titles, Including a Forgotten Street Fighter Game

Bargain bin.

Canadian company Liquid Media has bought the rights to 65 formerly abandoned Acclaim games for $1 million, with plans on remastering old classics.

Liquid Media purchased the rights from another Canadian company, Throwback Entertainment, which purchased its rights from Acclaim Entertainment when the company shut down in 2004. The purchase includes rights to games like Bubble Bobble on PC, a couple NBA Jam titles, and most surprisingly the Street Fighter: The Movie video game.

As Eurogamer reports, Liquid Media doesn't suddenly own the rights to Street Fighter or Bubble Bobble, but instead the stock-keep units, or SKUs, that Acclaim published. Liquid Media says in light of the success recently of retro games and mini consoles, Liquid plans to "remaster the beloved titles for today's gaming platforms."

So, will we see a remastered version of the strange Mortal Kombat-esque Street Fighter: The Movie game? Maybe!
