Can there be life after Cammy? Capcom seems to be considering more character DLC for the iPhone version of Street Fighter 4.

Yesterday afternoon, Capcom-Unity alerted enthusiasts that a three-day celebratory sale for the App was in full swing. For the next two days prospective owners can purchase the fighter title for $6.99 [App Store], 30 percent off the regular price courtesy of Super Street Fighter 4's hotly-anticipated console release on Tuesday afternoon.

Aside from announcing the sale, in the post author Larson teases the prospect of additional character DLC by asking fans to suggest other SF pugilists they'd like "to see as future DLC for the iPhone game."

The request seems plain enough, but it could be an exercise meant to only get fans commenting on the thread, earning them a chance at one of five redeemable codes being given away. We've reached out to Capcom for clarification. Update: They've responded, confirming intent to add more DLC after Cammy.

The first downloadable character, fan favorite Cammy, is set to be added to the game via a free update. She will join a cast of eight characters, all of which appeared in Street Fighter 4 proper.

Street Fighter 4 iPhone might not be as pleasing to the eye or as entertaining to control as its console brethren, but it's still an easily recommended, delightful romp according to our review of the title.

Update: A Capcom representative has confirmed that additional DLC plans are in the works. "There will be additional DLC beyond Cammy, but we haven’t announced anything additional yet," the rep said.

    I'm sure its been said but how does this run on a 3G?

      Works fine on mine.

      Even works fine on my 1st gen iPhone!
      First try after downloading was downright slow.... stuttering around 1 frame per 2seconds, but after a reboot, was fine. Levels loaded in 10-13secs, nad gameplay was smooth... was able ot knock out those multi-hit combos using Ken without much effort (4-hit hurricane kick followed by a 4-hit flaming dragon punch... super sweet if done right at the end!)
      You can also record your fights for replaying later. Very sweet!

    I'm keeping my fingers crossed that sales pick up enough for Capcom to consider adding full online multi, which would just be the icing on the cake really. Admittedly rather a large chunk of icing; )

    I like this version, plays surprisingly well and the controls haven't made me want to break my phone. Unlike the 360 which makes me want to snap the pad in two.
