Something about touch screen controls just don’t do it for me. Call me old school but give me a directional pad and buttons any day. So when Capcom said that they will be releasing Street Fighter IV Champion Edition for iOS I geeked out for a minute!
Then when you think this was it they had to go and sweeten the pot with MFi controller support!
Chew on these juicy details:
Take control of 25 world warriors and test your mettle against players from around the world. Street Fighter 4: Champion Edition perfects the winning gameplay formula by offering higher resolution graphics, three new characters (Poison, Ibuki and Dudley) wide screen support for newer iOS devices and a host of updates and refinements. Long time Street Fighter fans can jump into the action and have an instant familiarity with the controls. For more casual players Street Fighter 4 features numerous settings and tutorials that put you on the path to victory.
- Fight as 25 Street Fighter characters (three new characters and six more coming as free updates)
- Higher resolution graphics and wide screen support
- Intuitive virtual pad controls allow players to execute full move sets including Unique Attacks, Special Moves, Focus Attacks, Super Combos and Ultra Combos
- Take your game to the next level with a MFi controller like the Gamevice (MFi controllers do not work in menus, they fully function in multiplayer and single-player gameplay.)
- Battle head-to-head against players from around the world via Wifi
- Single player “arcade” and multiplayer modes.
- Unleash super moves with a tap of the “SP” button.
- Four levels of difficulty.

Finally we see some activity for the Street Fighter game series on the mobile device. It was kind of quiet for a while with the recent release of Street Fighter IV Volt. No one knows what happened to Street Fighter vs Tekken. It was like they want us to forget that game. Yet with this release it cements Capcom presence for the mobile fighting community.
