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 favourites 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-honoured art of virtual martial arts.

Features:

  • 2D/3D fighting environments
  • Classic Street Fighter characters re-imagined for a new generation of gamers
  • New special moves that go beyond any Street Fighter fan’s wildest imagination
  • Amazing locations never seen before in a Street Fighter game

    It was about time Capcom made a new SF! I can’t wait to see more info on this game. That screenshot looks great.

    For whatever reason the screenshot reminded me of the one level in Dead or Alive with the chickens and marketplace, but I guess that level was stolen from the original Street Fighter II level, which is probably what this one was based on. :)

    We need some new original backdrops for fighting game levels. The standard farmers market, cage match, top of a building, airport, etc. are getting old.

    What are some new level ideas you would like to see in Street Fighter IV or any other new fighting game?

    I would like to see a level in a night club and a day care.
