Street Fighter IV Invades iPhone

The world’s most popular duel fighting game has finally been released for the iPhone.Street-Fighter-IV-cover

Street Fighter IV can now be bought for a price of $9.99. There will be no “lite” version so there will be no free play.

The game features eight characters: Ryu, Ken, Chun-Li, Blanka, Dhalsim, Guile, Abel and M. Bison. Play can be by solo tournaments or by fighting other people online. A dojo has been included where players can practice their skills.

Of course the biggest adjustment would be the control as there is only a virtual version.  People who were able to play the game in advance to give reviews on the launch date indicates that the hefty price is good for the content of the game.  The visuals are in 2D but a critic said that it was nicely done. The music is fantastic but it is only played at the menus not during the fights.

The game can also be played in iTouch with an OS of at least iPhone OS 3.0.
