Capcom’s Puzzle Fighter is coming back as a mobile game for iOS and Android devices, the publisher announced today. This time, the gem-crushing puzzle game will include more than just Street Fighter and Darkstalkers characters.
The new Puzzle Fighter will include characters like Ryu, Ken, E. Honda and Chun-Li from Street Fighter, X from Mega Man, Morrigan from Darkstalkers, Frank West from Dead Rising, Mike Haggar from Final Fight and Jill from Resident Evil. Players will choose one main character and two assist characters, each with their own abilities.
The new Puzzle Fighter will include “real-time versus battles, rewarding single player options” and other unlockable content when the game launches in late 2017. A soft launch in select territories is coming soon, Capcom said.
The first Puzzle Fighter, Super Puzzle Fighter 2 Turbo, was released in arcades and for the original PlayStation in 1996. A high-definition re-release, Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo HD Remix, hit PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in 2007.
