Street Fighter IV Hits Google Play Store… Only in Japan for Now!
Capcom just gave everyone a late Xmas gift, by releasing the Street Fighter IV title on Google Play for Japan residents. I’m pretty sure that at some point in the future international users will also get the same treatment. This title has already been available for people who bought a LG HD Phone last year, since such devices came with the exclusive preinstalled game.
Up until now people had to play the cracked version from XDA, but there are good signs of a full Play Store launch soon. The game is in English, so it doesn’t need translating and making it reach the international market is just a formality right now. Gamers who tested the title have confirmed it works very well on the Galaxy S III. Also the graphics don’t look bad at all judging from the screenshots. I like the 3D backgrounds and such artistic improvement in graphics is also show in the size of the title: 1.3 GB of storage.
The price of Street Fighter IV for Android is around $3.50 to $4.00 but it may be different in the international version. From what I hear there’s no native joystick support in the game for now, although SIXAXIS touch emulation is supposed to be working fine. The biggest bummer is there’s no multiplayer, either local or online… In case you’re in Japan and you want the title, here it is, up for download here.
