It’s official. Street Fighter IV has been released at the All Nippon Amusement Machine Operator’s Union Fair, and it looks badass. In terms of characters, Capcom’s finished product features a handful of old favorites like Ryu, Ken, E. Honda, Chun Li, Guile and Zangeif. Some new characters have been introduced as well, such as C. Viper and the amnesia-stricken Abel. Gameplay looks to be incredibly smooth, combat intros look intense, and the KO move at the end of the video above looks pretty nuts. Capcom introduced a few other games at this year’s AOU Fair, but Street Fighter IV was obviously the main point of interest. We can’t get our hands on this one fast enough. It will still likely be quite a while before the game hits US shores, let alone finds its way to likely target consoles Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. How much do you think it will cost to ship one of those arcade machines over here from Japan?
