Street Fighter news that doesn’t involve its appearance on the Nintendo 3DS is at a premium as Nintendo rushes its next handheld to market, so I’m pleased to report on this little story which involves something quite different: Street Fighter IV [$.99] for the iPod and iPhone is now being sold for under a dollar. That’s like nine bucks worth of savings for a competent fighting game on a touch screen device. Not bad, right?

But, wait, there’s more savings to go around. Capcom has also slashed the prices of several of its titles to the one-dollar mark. Here’s the full list:


Capcom notes in the new game descriptions that talk about the sales that these deals won’t “last forever,” suggesting the usual one-week kind of sale, but not really confirming the stretch the marketing folks plan to play the App Store charting game.

As is usual with these kinds of sales, I suggest grabbing what you want now. Street Fighter IV is a steal at this price, and Devil May Cry 4, which just hit the platform (review!), is a good buy considering what’s being asked for it at the moment.

Update: Looks like we initially missed a few titles that are part of this sale. These have been added to the above list of links.

    Is RE4 (iPad version) worth it considering how much the platform has advanced since its release? Are the controls ok?

      I thought it was pretty mediocre, even when it was initially released on the iPhone way back when. It hasn't aged well. But, for a buck, it might be worth it just for the novelty factor of saying you're playing Resident Evil 4 on your device.

    Don't get Phoenix Wright. I quit less than halfway through. There's no challenge, and it gets very monotonous clicking through every item on the screen for clues.

  • thewiirocks

    I already have Phoenix Wright on the DS, but I picked it up anyway. I want to encourage Capcom to release more of the Wright series.

    WE WANT MORE PHEONIX WRIGHT, WE WANT MORE PHEONIX WRIGHT (repeat)

    (Come on Capcom! You know it's the WRIGHT thing to do!)

    I picked up SFIV and while I'm not a fighting game type so much, this seems fun so far. It took me two tries to get my first win and I have to say it was pretty satisfying when I did it. :) I'm looking forward to playing it some more. I wish it had online multiplayer, but then again, I'd just get crushed anyway....

    Definitely grabbing Street Fighter IV. I've been waiting for this kind of sale for a long time.

    Phoenix Wright is completely worth the buck as well. I'd say RE4 is NOT worth it though as it is incredibly disappointing, especially if you're someone who played RE4 when it first came out on the last generation game consoles.

  • bennehftw

    Is SFIV worth a dollar for someone who really doesn't like typical fighting games that much? I mean I like capcom vs marvel and stuff like that or guilty gears but I ain't hardcore at all and streetfighter by itself seems...a little lackluster. just from what I've seen it seems a little bland of a game.

  • bennehftw

    And I did pick up phoenix wright and RE4. Pheonix wright looks like a fairly short game since it took me only 15 mins to clear the first out of 5 levels. But its pretty fun. And RE4 is pretty good when you consider that it in on an ipod and not some gaming console

    • Thowky

      Each of the other levels is much longer than the first, the first is more of a tutorial than anything.

      Trust me you will not be finishing Phoenix Wright for a very long time. As the user above me said, each one gets longer and by the final episodes you'll be spending sometimes 5-6 hours+.

  • Grepochris

    grrrrrrr, can't believe this isn't in the Japanese store! They are a Japanese company!!!

    • Splendidham

      I was thinking the same thing. On top of that, I've noticed a lot of Capcom games aren't released in the Japanese store until well after other countries get their games.

      • Grepochris

        Still waiting for Sega to release chu-chu rocket here!

    GAH! Another company does an EA and puts a just released game on sale!

    I accept that games will come down in price at some point. Hell I went into my local gameshop on the 30th of Jan and they already had a pre-owned copy of Dead Space 2 on the shelves for a discount, but. This is digital distribution! DMc has been out a week! 59p already!?!

    Ace Attorney rules...got that when it first came out on iOS...99cents?!?! *faints...

    Seriously Capcom, what are you waiting for? 1 day into your sale, and Phoenix Wright has already jumped to #20 in the Top Paid Apps List. Go read the reviews, because clearly you haven't yet. Basically every review is from people who love the series, are willing to pay the original price of 5 dollars (some are willing to pay more, including myself). The game has 5 stars in the store, and yeah, I know the reason it moved up so high is because it's a dollar, but that's the same reason Street Fighter is up there now, except you slashed 9 dollars off that one. The first Phoenix Wright was ported over last March (or May, that's how long it's been), I bought it immediately, and since then Phoenix has been in my search bar EVERY DAY....you're really gonna let down a lot of people if you don't port the other 2 games, me especially. The DS ones are almost impossible to find, and having the games on WiiWare is nowhere near as handy and worth it as having it on the go (which I believe is why it was made for the GBA/DS), and for double the price and half the convenience, I don't know how you could leave iOS owners hanging like you have
