Capcom Japan is going off today announcing a slew of new titles, mostly for smartphones, tablets and Facebook. Now, before you get too excited, that basically means a bunch of franchises you know and love from Capcom’s history being used in “social" and “free-to-play" kinds of games. As a huge Street Fighter fan, one in particular stood out to me and that’s Street Fighter Battle Combination, a competitive card game based around the characters of Street Fighter IV. Not a lot of details are known about the title, other than the few images from the game’s website.
At this early stage there’s no telling if Street Fighter Battle Combination or any of the other games Capcom announced today will make their way to the US, but we’ll definitely be keeping our eye on the situation. Personally, I’d rather Capcom just updated their current crop of iOS games like Street Fighter IV Volt ($4.99) and Marvel vs. Capcom 2 ($4.99) for widescreen so I’d actually enjoy playing them again, but I guess there’s the potential for some of these new titles to be cool too. You can follow along with the Street Fighter Battle Combination discussion in our forums, and we’ll let you know if any significant news hits regarding these new Capcom titles coming stateside.
