There's no word on a price yet, either, but Street Fighter IV now costs $4 on the iOS App Store.

That said, the Nintendo Switch seems like the best of both worlds, as a console and a handheld system. XX came out in Japan in March, and hasn't yet been announced for the West.

And those of you looking forward to Capcom's unannounced big IP scheduled in this fiscal year, Capcom PR has confirmed that Monster Hunter XX Nintendo Switch Ver. isn't it. Champion Edition is an improved version of the original Street Fighter IV port, boasting improved visuals, three new characters, and support for more recent, wider-screen devices. Given its popularity on handheld devices, Nintendo's newest platform would be a great fit, especially if there's some cross-compatibility with the 3DS version. Its gameplay is based on the iteration Street Fighter II Turbo which was released in 1994.

The Final Challengers is a remake of the 1994 classic Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo, which has already been criticized for its high price point with it set to retail at $39.99. The addition of two characters to the game will be a hard sell, particularly when it's not getting very good reviews.

Finally, an update for Capcom Fighters Network will also roll out next week. The same goes for the audio quality.
