Capcom today announced that Street Fighter x Tekken will receive a mobile release for iOS devices. The initial roster will only include Street Fighter mainstays Ryu and Chun-Li, while the Tekken side will include the staples of Kazuya and Nina. Extra are characters are likely due in the near future, as Capcom tends to release new characters for their mobile platforms often.
As expected, the game will utilize a new UI and button scheme so mobile players will have an easier time actually seeing the action as they play. Street Fighter x Tekken will release on mobile devices later this summer. Fans of the series looking for a portable fix until the game launches on Vita will have a chance to play it on any device with iOS5, including the iPhone 4 and 4S, iPad 2, the New iPad, and iPod touch 4th Gen or later.
