Street Fighter IV welcomes new challengers to the fray

Sagat and Dee Jay sidestep into view

A couple of weeks ago, the fourth edition of the seminal beat-‘em-up series Street Fighter fireballed its way to the top of Qi’s prestigious Top 5 fighting games on iPhone chart.

A little - spinning, no doubt - birdie over at Capcom HQ revealed that Ryu, Guile, and co. have just been joined by a new challenger in the intimidating shape of Sagat as part of a free update.

The eyepatch-wearing Muay Thai master is accompanied onto the iPhone battleground by Dee Jay, another kickboxing specialist who squeezes in bare-knuckle bouts between spots of breakdancing and recording music.

Also included in the update are Game Center integration, classic Street Fighter II BGM as DLC, and a brand-new gameplay mode entitled Arcade Wait.

This last-named feature rather excitingly notifies you during a single-player session of nearby brawlers up for some Bluetooth one-on-one fisticuffs.

As it stood, Street Fighter IV already delivered a hearty Hadouken to its iOS competition, with the venerable TiPB gushing over its touchscreen control system:

“To execute a light, medium or strong attack, it is all about positioning and Capcom has nailed it.

“For example: if you crouch and attack with a kick, you get a medium crouched kick. If you forward crouch and press kick, you get a sweep kick.”

Sonic boom your way over to the App Store now and download Street Fighter IV for £5.99 / $9.99 / €7.99.
