LOS ANGELES, CA– March 10, 2010– Capcom®, a leading worldwide developer and publisher of video games, today released Street Fighter® IV for the iPhone and iPod touch onto Apple’s App Store. The hotly anticipated fighting game has been rebuilt from the ground up to take full advantage of the iPhone platform while still remaining true to the legendary series' high-action arcade roots.
Featuring eight classic characters from the console blockbuster including Ryu, Chun Li, Able, Blanka, M. Bison, Dhalsim, Guile and Ken as well as seven environments, Street Fighter IV offers players the most advanced fighting experience on the platform. Veteran players will instantly recognize Street Fighter IV‘s robust move sets including Unique Attacks, Special Moves, Focus Attacks, Super Combos and Ultra Combos. Newcomers to the series can get on the path to becoming a world warrior by completing the game’s new“Dojo” mode which provides simple to advanced lessons on dominating the game.
No fighting game is complete without multiplayer and Street Fighter IV doesn’t disappoint. Players can battle head-to-head in“Versus” mode via Bluetooth bringing the excitement of the arcade to the palm of their hand.
The controls in Street Fighter IV are managed using a unique“Visual Pad” system created specifically for the iPhone. By activating“SP Move Assist” players can trigger their character’s Special Moves with a tap of a button and a directional input. Hardcore players can disable the feature and enter the complete command manually if they so choose. Additionally, players can fully customize the interface by repositioning controls anywhere on the screen as well as setting the level of transparency.
