Capcom's Street Fighter IV heading to the iPhone

Of all the games companies to make something doomed before launch, you'd least expect it to be Capcom. Enter 'Street Fighter IV, iPhone edition'. For a game that requires such precise movements in split seconds, a touchscreen would be the last choice of weaponry. But as we all know the iPhone has become a nice money printer for games companies, with a pocket price maybe that 'doomed' comment was a little too early...

Controls aside, the visuals are incredible for the iPhone. Very few games on the iPhone can compare to this as of yet. The success of this 'app' will be inevitable. Apple have got the micro transaction service perfected making even the most unusual titles a potential purchase.

So far, only Ryu and Ken have been confirmed as playable characters, more here once we know.

In my opinion grab a gameboy or something this game has to suck on the iPhone, better yet buy a Mega Drive Or A Super Nintendo anything but the phone. AND only 2 playable characters, id say that game should never be sold even for any gaming system portable or non portable.
