Capcom Kicks Off the Next Generation of
Fighting Games with Street Fighter IV
The Next Round of the Definitive Fighting Game
Experience Combines 3D Graphics with Classic Street Fighter Feel
Capcom today officially announced development of
Street Fighter IV, the next iteration of the genre-establishing fighting game
series. This marks the first new entry announced in nearly eight years,
following the acclaimed Street Fighter III Third Strike.
In its amazing twenty year history, Street
Fighter has revolutionized the fighting genre and created a global legacy like
no other. Few details have been released on the new game, outside of a
heart-pounding preview trailer that set the gaming community on fire when it was
released in October on the official website, StreetFighterWorld.com.
Capcom is proud to announce the return of four
classic “World Warriors” in Street Fighter IV: returning favorites Ryu, Ken,
Chun-Li, and Dhalsim. The characters and environments are rendered in stylized
3D computer graphics (CG), while the game is played in the classic Street
Fighter 2D perspective with additional 3D camera flourishes. The traditional
six-button controls for the game will return, with a host of new special moves
and features integrated into the input system. Mixing tried-and-true classic
moves and techniques with all-new, never-before-seen gameplay systems, Street
Fighter 4 brings a brand new fighting game to fans the world over.
Everything that made the legendary Street Fighter
II a hit in arcades, living rooms and dormitories all over the world has been
brought to bear here, with even more surprises. With the inclusion of Capcom’s
latest advancements in new generation technology, Street Fighter IV promises to
deliver an extraordinary experience that will re-introduce the world to the
time-honored art of virtual martial arts.
