Capcom had already announced the return of four classic “World Warriors” in Street Fighter IV: Ryu, Ken, Chun-Li and Dhalsim. The characters and environments are rendered in stylized 3D computer graphics while the game is played in the classic Street Fighter 2D perspective with additional 3D camera flourishes.

The traditional six-button controls for the game will return, with a host of new special moves and features integrated into the input system.

Mixing tried-and-true classic moves and techniques with all-new, never-before-seen gameplay systems, Street Fighter IV brings a brand new fighting game to fans the world over.
