The Android OS version of Street Fighter IV
we originally caught wind of back in September
is now Street Fighter IV HD
. As per the original announcement, the game will initially be exclusive to the LG Spectrum, which launches on Verizon January 19
After LG's limited exclusivity blackout expires, however, Street Fighter IV HD
will hit the US Android Marketplace in May for $12.99. A Wifi-enabled VS. mode allows for local multiplayer, although it's unclear whether wireless VS. will require two of the same handsets. Also no word yet on system requirements for non-LG devices, although since the Spectrum is launching with Gingerbread and not Ice-Cream Sandwich, any dual-core Android device seems like a good bet.
