iPhones Street Fighter IV detailed

Capcom’s iPhone adaptation of combo-heavy 2.5D brawler Street Fighter IV will be released on the App Store next month and will cost $9.99, the publisher has announced.

Speaking with GamePro, the company also confirmed that the game will feature just eight characters – less than half of the 19 that can be found in the main console release (that’s including hidden characters).

It will be interesting to see how Capcom deals with the thorny issue of converting the game’s famously complex and precise control system to the touch-screen device.

SFIV is just the latest big-name console franchise to make the move to Apple’s portable sensation, with the highest profile to date probably being Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, which was released last month.
