Street Fighter IV announced for 360, PS3 and PC

Street Fighter IV will be coming to Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Windows PC whenever it gets around to shipping. Chances are, you already guessed this would be the case what with the mentions of DLC and all- but it’s nice to have official word from on high finally. Now if only Capcom would get around to announcing a release date...

Street Fighter IV, for those of you who somehow don’t know a damn thing about it, is a reimagining of the beloved fighter series with a mix of returning favorites (Ryu, Ken, Chun-Li, etc.) and some new characters like Crimson Viper, Abel, El Fuerte, and Rufus. “Characters and environments are rendered in stylized 3D, while the game is played in the classic Street Fighter 2D perspective with additional 3D camera flourishes. Six-button controls for the game return, with a host of new special moves and features integrated into the input system,” says the press release.
