Capcom announced today that it's planning on bringing Puzzle Fighter, the sequel to the classic Super Puzzle Fighter 2 Turbo (and its HD Remix remake), to iOS and Android before the end of the year, so if you enjoy puzzle games with your favorite Capcom characters, you're in luck. The game will get a new look and new features, and will include characters such as Ryu, Ken, and Chun-Li from Street Fighter, X from Mega Man, Morrigan from Darkstalkers, Frank West from Dead Rising, and more. In terms of features, the game will have real-time PvP battles, single player content, and more. Puzzle Fighter will of course be a free to play title, so you should know by now what to expect in terms of monetization.

For those who've never played the original games, Puzzle Fighter has you picking a character and two "assist" characters and matching gems as you try to take out your opponent. The assist characters can enhance the main character's abilities, so there's plenty of strategy in which characters to pick and how to go about building up combos. And you get to do your matching is some very iconic arenas from Capcom games. The game should be soft launching pretty soon, and the worldwide release should come before the end of 2017.

      Nope, Capcom seems to have forgotten that game existed, seeing how it was never released after the PSOne version. Kinda like Rival Schools. I don't think Capcom wants our money enough 😛

        they should do the same with snk that I take all their classic games, such as metal slug, king of fighter, or as sega with his classics

    Puzzle Figter is the sequel to Super Puzzle Fighter 2 Turbo????

    Shouldn’t it be the other way round?

      There's no "Puzzle Fighter". The first game was named "Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo" as a parody to Street Fighter II Turbo.

      So this is technically the sequel.

      • DanCJ

        Ah, that makes sense.

  • xanthon

    I've been waiting for this to be released on mobile ever since the app store was launched. The early capcom arcade emulator had terrible controls and didn't have PvP.

      It also didn't have half the progression elements of the PS1 release!

    Too bad the publisher that did SF Puzzle Spirits quit updating the game after iOS 10. I still enjoy that.

    If this is done right, despite F2P mechanics, it could be a fun replacement.

    • Matthew

      Well, that really sucks. Just opened the app and it says the server is shutting down on the 30th!

      Oh, apparently it was the 30th of August. Too bad they didn't make the single player portion offline.
