Street Fighter IV Welcomes Chun-Li's Thighs, Classic Fighters (http://kotaku.com/353121/street-fighter-iv-welcomes-chun+lis-thighs-classic-fighters)


The latest issue of Famitsu, scheduled to hit newsstands on Friday, will scoop the official Street Fighter IV web site in revealing additions to the fighting game's cast of characters. Leaked scans of the newest issue have already hit 2ch, by way of Korean gaming site Ruliweb (http://ruliweb.empas.com/ruliboard/read.htm?table=game_ps04&page=1&num=38274), showing off the original eight from Street Fighter II will return. Guile, Blanka, Zangief, Dhalsim, E. Honda and Chun-Li join Ken and Ryu, all of whom look very familiar—perhaps a bit too familiar.

While the gameplay shots are tiny, we get a look at Street Fighter IV's attention to detail. Touches like Dhalsim's bandages and bracelets spreading over the Indian fighter's stretched arms make 3D more welcome.
We also get a chance to see newcomer Crimson Viper in-game, plus a peek at some familiar Street Fighter moves.

Four pages of pics are in the gallery below. Be sure to check them out full-sized.

nice find!! i cant wait to kick ass with guile again. good to hear that they are including the original 8 characters as that is what most people who are my age will remember because of playing street fighter in the arcade and on the snes (or genesis?). i am looking forward to this even more now!

If some of you guys are Capcom and SNK fans, you should def. create an account over at:


Great place for 2D fighting fans to unite.

Other than that, just happy that Blanka is there, that's all I care.

New Street Fighter IV Pics At Famitsu (http://kotaku.com/353928/new-street-fighter-iv-pics-at-famitsu)


You may have seen some of the newest screen shots from Famitsu magazine earlier this week (http://kotaku.com/353121/street-fighter-iv-welcomes-chun+lis-thighs-classic-fighters), but the Famitsu web site finally has clear—if not huge—pics that outnumber what the print version showed. They show off thankfully legible details on all eight classic street fighters plus newbie Crimson Viper's special moves.

As an added bonus, it looks like the Famitsu staff got to go hands-on with the arcade version of Street Fighter IV, with pics of themselves playing it as proof. Those can be seen here (http://www.famitsu.com/game/news/1213480_1124.html) and include off monitor screens showing alternate costume colors.

Who wants to bet that Chun-Li's thighs will get thicker by final release?

They were voting for what achievements should be on it over at the Capcom forums...

the one that caught my eye the most was "Defeat Sagat With The Dragon-Punch"....fun

Can't wait. This game always cured the ever popular case of boredom when I was younger.
