Game Profile

The ultimate version of Street Fighter™ makes its seamless transition to the Nintendo 3DS with Super Street Fighter IV: 3D Edition.

The console experience is now in the palm of your hand with rich new features that utilize the capabilities of the Nintendo 3DS to its fullest.

Packed with 35 playable characters, bonus stages and cinematic Ultra combos, Super Street Fighter IV: 3D Edition expands the action by allowing you to fight your friends around the world using Wi-Fi.

New to the franchise are the figurine mode, which utilizes the Street Pass feature to add a collectible meta-game, and the 3D over-the-shoulder camera option that takes fighting to new depths. For those new to the franchise, a simple mode has been added allowing players to pull off challenging moves with a single touch of the screen.

Key Features:

  • Online / Local WiFi Multiplayer – Fight your friends around the world or in the same room with the only title to utilize the full capabilities of Nintendo’s online network at launch.
  • 35 Playable Characters – Play as a huge array of fighters ranging from classic world warriors like Ryu, Ken, Guile and Chun Li to the newly added Hakan and Juri.
  • Figurine Mode – The collectible meta-game features figurines of iconic characters in a brand-new addition to the Street Fighter franchise. When passing by another Nintendo 3DS owner, your chosen figurines will automatically battle via StreetPass. Next time you play the game you can view the results and collect your loot.
  • 3D Mode – A new over-the-shoulder camera option has been added, offering an exciting new perspective of the action.
  • Game Sharing – Play a game with a friend using the ever-popular Ryu, even when they don’t have a cartridge!
  • Be A Spectator – With the Spectator Mode, use your own Nintendo 3DS to watch your friends battle it out live.
  • Lite/Pro Control Modes – By utilizing a customizable touch screen interface, two new optional control schemes have been added to allow new players to pull off challenging moves with ease (Lite) and veterans to better access button combinations such as throws and three punches (Pro).

Looks like the third party developers are really liking the 3DS's capabilities. Capcom, I'm waiting for Monster Hunter 3DS!



Iggy said:

Awesome im happy to know that Street Fighter going to on the 3DS. Im going to log so many hours on this game...



Bass_X0 said:

I won't be getting it. I have the XBOX 360 version. I don't need it, and I don't expect it will have any new characters either. Probably even less characters. It'll still be good though. What could the bottom screen be used for - your character's move lists perhaps? That would be handy for newcomers.



Omenapoika said:

Way to go Capcom! Now just give us Phoenix Wright: Rise from the Ashes for the 3DS



KiroX777 said:

i cant w8 to play this on the 3DS simply because i know it will be waayy easier to control on the 3DS than a ps3 controller >_> nintendo really hit the Jackpot x2 with this miracle system lol



Hokori said:

Cant wait to get this because this game alone was one reason I wanted a 360 or PS3, but now I dont have to. (Sorry Sony Nintendo won me over again)



Retrogamer88 said:

Chozo85 said:

Undoubtedly the must-have launch game on the 3DS. I was disappointed this wasn't released on the Wii but this more than makes up for it.



NIN10DOXD said:

i heard from the 3ds blog that if you preorder th game that it will come in a limited edition case. I think im getting as my fist 3ds game cuz it looks so awesome



JakobG said:

I absolutely adore this game.
The controls, while obviously inferior to the classic Arcade Stick, are much better than I had expected; the amount of complexity you can put into your moves is enormous, and not even for a handheld device. The online mode is mostly smooth and free of any lag (some people say it surpasses the online mode of it's console counterparts), though crowded with inexperienced fighters who would abuse the light mode (it sadly overpowers every charge character badly) who will ragequit after a lost battle.
The offline content is nigh identical to the one of the home console port, as it provides all 35 characters, along with almost every alternate costume. The graphics are very good and come very close to the original in motion; in the heat of battle, one would not mind the immobile and poorly detailed backgrounds. The 3D, while subtle, really adds to the visuals, however, if you prefer a more classic and solid approach, you can disable the 3D effect completely, resulting in constant 60 frames per second. While I did not have the pleasure of making use of the new figurine mode, I can say a few things. Firstly, I would like to address it's surprising complexity. It actually offers heavy customization of the team and the single figurines, and offers excellent balance; as a matter of fact, it is impossible to win the game if the team is not balanced enough. The game holds multiple hundreds of different figurines that can all be collected with great effort; this feature definitely is not a cheap add-on.

Overall, I recommend this game to anyone who does not despise fighters. Not only is it extremely addicting and entertaining, it also is easily the most accessible entry in the Street Fighter franchise.



Samholy said:

allright capcom. this is how you treat your customers.
i hope more developers learn from this.
This is a great way to hook your gamers longer to your games.



Willux said:

I've found myself hooked to this game right off the bat. I HATED the 360 and other console versions of this game but this version was insanely different, yet the same? LOL. Seriously though, awesome.
