Street Fighter IV first images

The first images of the highly anticipated Street Fighter IV game, is released. Everyone was wondering how the graphics would look like after the teasing trailer. Here is your first look.

CAPCOM (the game developer) have announced that the graphics shall be in 3D polygons, however, much to the relief of die hard fans, the actual game is strictly 2D.

As usual, new places, characters and moves will be included and the 6 Button system of old remains (3 punches: jab, mid and fierce, and 3 kicks: jab, mid, and fierce).

So far, only Ryu, Ken, Chun-Li & Dhalsim have been announced. The game is expected to hit the Arcades (if there are any left) in 2008.

* The game will use toon-shaded graphics like in Street Fighter II
* The gameplay will be in 2D while graphics are in 3D, but the camera angle is fixed
* Capcom wants to bring as many characters back from Street Fighter II series as possible
* The story takes place between Street Fighter II Turbo and Street Fighter III
* The battle system will be more aggressive and focus more on attacking instead of defending
* A decision has not been made which platform the game will be on, the test version was build on PC
