Street Fighter IV
Street Fighter IV (ストリートファイターIV Sutorīto Faitā Fō?) is a 2008 fighting game produced by Capcom. It is the first Street Fighter game in the main series released by Capcom since the arcade release of Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike in 1999 and the first game in the IV sub-series. The arcade version was released in Japan on July 18, 2008 and was given a limited release in North American arcades in August. Home versions were released for the Arcade Japan July 18, 2008.
While Street Fighter IV features fighters and backgrounds rendered in 3D, the gameplay remains on a traditional 2D plane. Producer Yoshinori Ono has stated that he wanted to keep the game closer to Street Fighter II than its sequels, and as such the parry system from Street Fighter III has been dropped. A new system called Focus Attacks (Saving Attack in the Japanese version) has been introduced, as well as Ultra Combos. The traditional six-button control scheme returns, with new features and special moves integrated into the input system, mixing classic gameplay with additional innovations.
