Street Fighter IV boxarted with Chun-Li and Ryu


Recently, Capcom unveiled the box art for a little game known as Street Fighter IV, surprising us with not one but TWO different covers. Yes sir, SFIV will actually sport two separate box art covers, one for the United States and another for Europe. And if you look above, you'll see both covers in all their glory. The left is U.S. The right is Europe. Looks to us like the U.S. got screwed.

No console specific fighters in Street Fighter 4

Unlike a certain soulless fighting game, Capcom's Street Fighter 4 will not be doing console specific fighters due to it not being "very fair".

In an interview with videogamer.com, SF4 producer Yoshinori Ono mentioned that they don't "want to give an exclusive character for any particular console," saying that "it's not very fair" to make specific fighters only available on certain platforms. And if your mind is already wandering down the downloadable content path, know that Ono says their decision to not offer console specific SF4 fighters is a rule for DLC as well. So, take that Yoda and SoulCalibur IV ... YEAH!

Street Fighter IV: Console exclusives, new site and possible release


Earlier last week Famistu confirmed the console versions of Street Fighter IV would feature exclusive online play (shocking, no online for arcades? Joke.) and characters, two of which have been revealed to be Bruce Lee look-a-like Fei Long and SF inside joke, Dan.

This week Capcom has launched a new promotional website for Street Fighter IV. Offering the latest 'Epic' trailer and links to the blog for Street Fighter IV and the upcoming Street Fighter: Legend of Chun-Li movie, the site shows off little in the way of new content. Interestingly enough the site offers two pre-order methods for Street Fighter IV. One allows gamers to order directly from Capcom while the other is linked back to GameStop who is offering a collectible art book with purchase and lists a ship date of February 2, 2009. While the date may change, it give us a general idea of when to expect the anticipated fighter.

Street Fighter IV: It's an 'Epic' trailer


We're really intrigued by Street Fighter IV, but not nearly as intrigued as we are by the trailer released by Capcom at Captivate08. Reminiscent of a fan-made YouTube video, the latest trailer for Street Fighter IV plays out as Faith No More's hit-song, "Epic," blasts in the background. We never thought we'd see Street Fighter marketed that way. Either way, the footage looks solid and we can't wait to get some quality time with Capcom's best-selling franchise again. Wait, Jean Claude Van Damme played Guile didn't he? Guess no one knows how Street Fighter should be marketed!

Confirmed: Street Fighter IV hits consoles, PC


A few days ago we reported a rumor that cited Street Fighter IV as an upcoming Xbox 360, PS3 and PC release--well they are rumors-no-more. Last night Capcom confirmed [via IGN] that the 2/3D fighter hybrid will land on next generation consoles as well as Windows-based PCs, continuing the company's recent support of the platform (as in Devil May Cry 4 and Lost Planet PC releases). More details regarding the title is expected at the upcoming Captivate08 event in Las Vegas. Press email after the jump.

Rumor: Street Fighter IV uppercuts Xbox 360, PC for winter release


Rumor has it that Capcom accidentally revealed the release schedule and platforms for the upcoming, official, fourth installment of Street Fighter. According to a story on French gaming site Jeuxvideo, Capcom inadvertently let the information slip on a press site that scheduled the 2/3D fighter hybrid for a winter release on the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.

While the general consensus is that Street Fighter IV would make its way to next-gen platforms, a PC release is a surprise. While we could speculate that the rumor has weight due to Capcom's recent admiration for the PC platform (with Devil May Cry 4 and Lost Planet releases), the well-known similarities in development for Xbox 360 and PC titles and USB being the primary input on all next-gen controllers, we're going to remind everything this one is just a rumor for now.

On a side note, with the popularity of the Cybercafé in the Eastern market a PC release would make sense. Just saying!

New Street Fighter IV Cinematic Trailer

Employing an art style similar to that seen in the original trailer for the game, the newest bit of Street Fighter IV media to be released is another cinematic trailer, this time showing off Chun-Li and the new character C.Viper. The inky stylized quality to the video makes for a fun little teaser trailer, and sharp-eyed players will be able to spot a signature move or two hidden in all the fluff. Despite the fact that this video in no way represents the final gameplay, it does give a bit of a feel for the flavor that Capcom is shooting for with the series return. And for a game shrouded in mystery, Capcom's media release schedule seems to be rather consistent, possibly hinting that the game is farther long than anyone knows. If we find some more videos such as this one, it could be a sign that we could see that fighting game revival sooner than we thought.

New SFIV Video: Gameplay of New Characters

Last week we got a glimpse of the new Street Fighter IV character and wondered how he'd fight, this week we get to see him do so. This new promotional video of the game shows of all of the revealed characters and plenty of gameplay. The jury is still out for us on a few minor details (moving of camera, certain specifics of character design, etc) but all in all it looks really good. The gameplay clips show some returning moves and show us some never before seen combo footage, though you do need to be quick to spot it as it's only there for a few seconds before the special move. With the game releasing in late summer to Japanese arcades, we could see this at about this time next year, or even earlier if we're lucky.

Famitsu drops avalanche of SFIV screens


With the revelation that the playable cast of Street Fighter II would be returning for Street Fighter IV came one burning question: where are the damned pictures? Of course, the story originated from Japanese gaming mag Famitsu, so the answer is pretty simple. Famitsu has now been so gracious as to put the screens on their website for all to see. All told we have in-game shots of Chun-Li, Blanka, Zangief, Guile, E. Honda, Dhalsim, and newcomer Crimson Viper (how come everyone else gets normal names?). The article also contains shots of some of Ryu's super move as well as the new Saving Attack system. In the Saving Attack sequence of images, Ryu blocks Ken's fireball and then quickly counter attacks, knocking Ken to the ground. Good stuff, and reason for Street Fighter fans to take notice.

First Street Fighter IV details revealed


First, let's clear something up: yes, that's a screenshot from Street Fighter IV. Yes, it is rendered in 3D. The game, however, will play out in 2D fashion just like the classics. There, with that out of the way, let's discuss Street Fighter IV. 1UP has the scoop, and what is known right now is that the game will feature new moves, new locations, and new gameplay features. Street Fighter IV retains the same six button configuration, so vets should feel right at home there. So far, the only characters revealed are the return of Ken, Ryu, Chun Li, and Dhalsim. Finally, no specific platforms have been announced for the game so far, but given the success Capcom has had with the 360 so far, it's probably a safe bet we'll see it on Microsoft's box. More details will be revealed in the January issue of EGM which should be hitting subscribers very soon. You can bet we'll give you the skinny when we find out more.
