Street Fighter IV: Arena (Capcom)

Capcom and Nexon are currently developing Street Fighter IV Arena for mobile. It's being beta tested in Korea right now.

It's been four years since the Silver Award-winning Street Fighter IV came out on iOS. It's been three years since Street Fighter IV: Volt Battle Protocol, too.

So another Street Fighter IV spin-off seems a little overdue right now. But hey, we're not complaining - we'll gladly take more classic arcade fighting for our mobiles.

Unfortunately, we don't currently know if Street Fighter IV Arena will be a classic fighting game, or something else. We don't even know what mobile platforms it's for.

The word 'Arena' in the title suggests it might be a little different to the normal Street Fighter formula, mind.

We'll have to wait and see what Street Fighter IV Arena is all about when it's released later this year in Korea. Hopefully it will make its way westwards in time.

This better come with controller support, fighting games and controllers are made for each other. As for "Arena" i have know idea what this could mean, unless it has some traits from the ps1 titles - Battle Arena Toshiden.

Theres a zero percent chance this game is not a freemium card battler. You can bet your life on it.

I always get excited by Capcom releases.

However, history has shown me how bad they are with news, releases and updates.

Anyone remember when they released mvc2 with no announcement? Then we broke the game and there was no update
