Street Fighter IV 'more than a year away'

The latest chapter in the popular beat-'em-up series isn't coming anytime soon, warns Capcom.


Yesterday, a teaser trailer appeared on Capcom's Web site for a new addition to the Street Fighter series. Around 10 years after Street Fighter III: The New Generation slammed into arcades, the video announced that a sequel--Street Fighter IV--would finally be coming.

At the Capcom Gamer's Day in London, Capcom's European head of communications Ben LeRougetel also showed the media ensemble crammed into the cinema at the Courthouse Hotel Kempinski the trailer, which was met with gasps of surprise and rapturous applause.

Introducing the short teaser, LeRougetel said that there was not a lot he could say yet about the title. He told the audience, "Development on this project has only just started, so its release will be more than a year away."

He also added that platforms had also not yet been decided for Street Fighter IV. GameSpot will bring you more news on this exciting development as soon as it becomes available.
