Before the latest issue of Famitsu (via IGN
), we knew Ryu and Ken
were back for the "fourth" (and we use that term lightly
) Street Fighter
title. Now we have a confirmation that Chun-Li, Blanka, E. Honda, Zangief
, Dhalsim and Guile are all returning. Street Fighter IV
is now officially a 17-year reunion for the SFII
lineup. Be careful, we suspect Zangief might try to spike the punch.
The magazine also provided an illustration for how the new Saving Attack system will work: Ryu blocks Ken's fireball and immediately counters, causing Ken to fall down. Street Fighter IV
is expected to be playable
at the Japanese Amusement Expo on February 15.
