Capcom Announces Street Fighter IV For iPhone

leave a comment »

No you’re still not drunk from the weekend, Capcom has confirmed that Street Fighter IV will hit the iPhone in all of it’s arty 2D/3D glory.

To back this up, Capcom has impressively made a game that has more than a passing resemblance to its current gen counterparts. Boasting scaled down models taken from the 360/PS3 versions and assets taken directly from the same code, Street Fighter IV on the iPhone at least looks the part.

In regards to controls, the iPhone rendition of the title has touch screen based directional arrows and input buttons which while a requirement, don’t fill me with hope as to how intuitively it will all control.

The package is quite nicely rounded off by a practice mode and 1 vs 1 versus modes over Bluetooth.

An impressive undertaking for sure, I just can’t help but think that as a game which lives or dies by its control system, that Street Fighter IV on the iPhone may well die here.

What do you think?
