The cool cats at Capcom on Thursday announced the release of Street Fighter IV: Volt for iOS. The game adds a much-anticipated WiFi support for "V.S." mode.
The game combines a 2D perspective with additional 3D camera flourishes. A unique four-button ³Visual Pad² control system allows players to execute moves through multiple key combinations and shortcuts making the game accessible to casual players, while still challenging to hardcore fans.
Japanese company Capcom and its American counterpart, Capcom USA, along with SEGA will be slashing prices on many of their most popular games in order to raise money for Japan Relief funds. Notable titles like Street Fighter 4 and several Sonic the Hedgehog games are being included in the sale.
Adding to its growing collection of mobile emulations of its classic games, Sega has released Virtua Fighter 2 in the App Store. This isn't the well-known arcade version, though. Rather than that gorgeous (by 1995 standards) 3D version, this is the 2D Sega Genesis version of that same game--we know, it's a little confusing.
Don’t call it a port--Street Fighter 4 for iPhone and iPod touch is an
entirely new game with the same look and feel of the console games and
classic arcade cabinets. What’s different, of course, is the way you
play the game. With a bit of added UI ingenuity from the "visual pad"
engine, Capcom delivers a surefire hit that’s definitely going to tire
out your thumbs. Check out our hands-on video after the jump.
Capcom announced today that Street Fighter IV will be available for the
iPhone and iPod touch this March. The game will feature your favorite
cast of characters from the recent console releases, and even introduce
some new faces and fighting maneuvers.
