Quite a while after reaching iOS (July 2017), Street Fighter IV: Champion Edition is finally (almost) ready to launch on Google Android. This mobile game is based on the 2008 title and features 25 playable characters.

Back in 2008, Capcom launched Street Fighter IV for arcades, but only in Japan. The following year, this fighting video game reached the Sony PlayStation 3 and Microsoft's Xbox 360 consoles, as well as Windows PCs. The iOS version was launched in 2010, while Street Fighter IV: Champion Edition replaced it in 2017, also adding three new playable fighters. Now, this game is almost ready for Android, as confirmed by Capcom Mobile on Twitter.

The message about Street Fighter IV: Champion Edition's arrival on Google Play also contains a pre-registration link. Sadly, there is nothing special for those who pre-register, except the fact they will be the first to download the game once it comes out. On the other hand, there is no cost for doing this, since all you have to do is enter your name and email address, nothing more.

Street Fighter IV: Champion Edition is the latest in a long line of Capcom classic games that came from the past to the mobile platforms, such as Ghosts'n Goblins, all the six Mega Man titles, or Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney. If you're a fan of fighting games using an Android device (and you're willing to risk destroying the touchscreen while you're enjoying your favorite titles), the good news is that Bandai Namco has plans to unleash a new Tekken game on Google Play this month. 

At last, if you are using an iOS device and still did not manage to play Street Fighter IV: Champion Edition, you might want to take a look at it on iTunes. Since everyone's running Valentine's Day special sales these days, Capcom decided to offer this title at 60% off, so now you have the chance to get your hands on this classic for just US$1.99.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
