It's all go for Capcom and beat em up fans the world over at the moment with two new releases and a new update for Street Fighter IV: Volt.
First up is the much anticipated release of Final Fight bring classic side scrolling beat em up action to the iPhone. As it was upon its original release in the arcades, Final Fight allows its players to choose from one of three characters: Guy, Cody or Haggar. It's then down to that character to rescue a kidnapped woman, Jessica, from a ruthless street gang. With each character offering their own fighting style and abilities, there's plenty to hook beat em up fans. The iOS version includes a finishing move button which allows the player to blow up enemies at any given time, much like the special move seen in games like the Streets of Rage series. Added functionality exists with the ability to join up with a friend for co-op play thanks to the game's Bluetooth network support. Final Fight will be regularly priced at $2.99 but it's currently on offer priced at $0.99 until September 21st as part of Capcom's Super Sale.
Another new release comes in the form of Street Fighter II Collection which for a mere $3.99 offers three Street Fighter II games in one, namely Street Fighter II, Street Fighter II: Champion Edition and Street Fighter II: Hyper Fighting. We all know and love this title. For many it was their first taste of beat em up wonder. It's all here in an iOS format with a button command system that fits into the touch screen nature of the system. There's also the addition of a finishing move button and of course there's competitive play via Bluetooth.
Finally, Capcom has updated Street Fighter IV: Volt and added two new characters to the roster: Fei Long and Yun. Due to this update and Capcom's Super Sale, Street Fighter IV: Volt is currently priced at only $2.99 rather than the usual $6.99 price tag. This offer lasts until September 19th so get in there fast.
Beat em up fans rejoice and have a great weekend of fighting!
Have you had your eye on a copy of Chu Chu Rocket but couldn't justify the $4.99 price tag? If so then we've got good news, as Sega has announced they're dropping the price of several of the company's most popular games. This isn't just a temporary reprieve either, as all price cuts are permanent. Here's the full list:
ChuChu Rocket HD:
Ecco the Dolphin:
Phantasy Star II:
Super Monkey Ball 2:
Super Monkey Ball 2 Sakura Edition:
Sonic The Hedgehog 1:
Sonic The Hedgehog 2:
Sonic The Hedgehog 4 Episode 1:
Streets of Rage:
A quick note here, most of the price cuts apply to the iPhone/iPod Touch version of the games, so keep that in mind. The only native iPad apps listed in the reduction are Chu Chu Rocket HD and Super Monkey Ball 2: Sakura Edition.
Hooray for cheap games! It's also nice to see that most of the price cuts are rather substantive, and that Sega isn't just taking 50 cents off the price and asking us to get excited. Sure, Sonic 1 and 2 are only discounted by $1, but most of the other titles are at least half off. Furthermore, since these are permanent price cuts you can space out your purchases and grab most if not all of the games rather than being rushed and forced to only pick one or two to get in before the sale ends.
Of course, the flip side to all this excitement is the fact that the price reductions really just bring the games in line with what users expect to pay for apps and the cost of entry is really no lower than what one would find on a lot of other quality titles. So while we applaud Sega for bringing the prices down to a more reasonable level, maybe they should have started here in the first place.
