Last month, Capcom unexpectedly announced that they would be releasing a brand new mobile iteration in the Street Fighter series, dubbed Street Fighter IV: Champion Edition. Owing to the quality of the last few games in the series that have made the transition to the smaller screen, and an abundance of awesome new features and characters, it was enough to get the iOS fighting game community on our forums excitedly anticipating what this sequel may have in store for us. While there is still no specified release date, Capcom have today released a brand new trailer for Street Fighter IV: Champion Edition, which gives a glimpse of the action, and also divulges some details on the characters we can expect to brawl as when the title finally reaches the App Store.

The new trailer for Street Fighter IV: Champion Edition provides the first gameplay of some of the new characters in the game, with Dudley and his unfortunate cowlick and the whip-wielding Poison featuring in the footage. Otherwise, it seems to be business as usual - the graphical style appears to be similar to Street Fighter IV Volt [$4.99], even if Capcom promise 'higher resolution graphics', and the virtual controls remain untouched. However, Capcom have also detailed on their website that six more characters are scheduled to be added to the title's roster in later free updates, and so a grand total of nine new fighters is certainly welcome, as is the MFi controller compatibility. Street Fighter IV: Champion Edition is the epitome of 'if it ain't broke, don't fix it', and I can't wait to step into the fray when it launches in the near future. If you're similarly excited, let us know your impressions of this new trailer on our forum thread.

    • yomachaser

      Honestly I was doing FADC combos in ultras since like day 1 so it doesn't really need need controllers.

  • lezrock

    Local Multiplayer on iPad with mfi would be the peak of awesomeness!

  • boydstr

    Controller support! so count me in how cool is it that not so long ago you needed a console to play this now you have a gadget that takes pictures can capture special moments in HD can listen to your favorite music watch tv/movies can play games and before I forget you can make calls with it to someone that is on the other side of the world and can see them in realtime on your screen is unbelievable that this is possible on our phones!

    • Duane Locsin

      Also play Virtual reality, Augmented Reality, act as a modular pc, A.I assistant and fly drones.

      Smart phones being phones is more a side thing they do and should eventually be renamed to smart devices.

      • boydstr

        That's true but the first thing they where used for is to make calls when later the chips became smaller and smaller and more powerful they evolved in the today's smartphones and new possibilities will still be added.

  • Cheuk Seto

    Where is Oni?

    • boydstr

      Mabey they add the character in a later update but I think that there are more characters that are not included but I never count the amount of different SF characters used in de series.

  • Eric Ng

    Evil Ryu and Gouken??? Omg I am so hyped

  • twinblades1

    Juri and Rose on the go!!!!!

    Day 1

  • Duane Locsin

    Maybe asking too much and would be too much of an overhaul, but I would like to see the six buttons configurations come back since it will be MFI controller supported.

    If not, MFI support is the standout feature for me at least and my GAMEVICE controller on the iPad 12.9 is ready!

  • Paul

    Looks awful graphically. Why won't devs allow gfx scaling like a PC?

  • Adriano Aureliano

    Please toucharcade use your strength and send an email to capcom requesting this android game too

    Android 6 billion user active... why capcom?

    • Adriano Aureliano

      Sorry i lie, 2 billion user active android,

      Kkkk

      6 billion just jupiter planet

      Tks

    • boydstr

      "why capcom?"
      Because the piracy issues on Android when a new popular game is released within some time you can see free apk SF IV download links,developers see that time after time that popular games are played by for example a few thousand but they sell only a few hundred of their games..so do the math the same is happening on pc and the result is more"FTP"shenanigans and we can see the negative results of this on the AppStore.

      • Adriano

        Even though it is part of piracy, there are a large number of users who do not use piracy, and within a universe of 2 billion users, there is a lot of chance that people will not join piracy, which I see perhaps is a possible exclusive contract with Capcom with apple, just as there is this contract between Street Fighter V and Playstation 4, because if it was piracy only, the game Ace Attourney only has for IOS when in fact there is version for ANDROID too

      • boydstr

        I agree with you that there are legitimate gamers but the numbers show that on PC
        and mobile the piracy issues are a real problem and I think that this is hurting the "real gamers"in the end.
