Street Fighter IV gameplay videos doing the rounds

Street Fighter

Some Street Fighter IV footage has been knocking around for a week or two now, but for those who haven’t seen any, head on over to YouTube to watch some videos.

The graphics appear to be in full 3D, but the classic 2D gameplay remains, with characters seemingly only able to move side to side, and not back and forth (from the player’s perspective), much like early PS2 title Street Fighter EX3. Additionally animations from earlier Street Fighter games seem to have been retained, giving it a similar visual feel to its forebears.

Confirmed platforms have still not been announced by developer and publisher Capcom, and no release date is known at this time.

So, are you looking forward to this game? What do you think of the visual style? Why not discuss it in our forum.
