Video: Streetfighter IV on the iPhone gets price and release date

I myself am in the “This will never work”-camp, but Japanese video game giant Capcom is preparing a special version of their hit title “Streetfighter IV” for the iPhone/iPod touch. The announcement was made last week, making the iPhone version the first on a mobile device (the arcade game has been ported to the PS3 and XBox 360 only so far).

And today, Gamepro was able to lay their hands on Streetfighter IV (see their video below), revealing the final version will feature a total of eight characters: Ryu, Ken, Guile, Blanka, Chun-Li, Dhalsim, M. Bison and Abel (the console games have 17 playable characters).

Capcom also said Streetfighter is scheduled to hit the App Store next month with a price tag of $9.99. Graphics-wise, the version Gamepro was able to test looks pretty impressive, but I have massive doubts regarding control and playability – even though Capcom is behind this. There’s a reason why the iPhone doesn’t have many fighting games.

Here’s the video:
