One of my all-time favorites is Capcom’s Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo, or simply just Puzzle Fighter, which blends together the Street Fighter fighting game series with matching gameplay to great effect. We haven’t heard much from that series in recent years, but according to the source for all things Street Fighter Shoryuken (via Just Push Start), Capcom is readying another Street Fighter matching game mashup for mobile devices in Japan. The game in question is called Street Fighter Puzzle Spirits, and you can see a Japanese language trailer for it below.
As a big fan of Puzzle Fighter, I actually think Street Fighter Puzzle Spirits looks pretty good. The art style is certainly coolUnfortunately, there’s no word on whether the game is slated for release outside of Japan, but my fingers are crossed. If word comes out that Street Fighter Puzzle Spirits will be heading stateside, we’ll definitely let you know.
