After much speculation, the famous twins from Street Fighter 3, Yun and Yang have been confirmed to be the two new characters that will be added to the arcade version of Super Street Fighter IV whichwill later be released as DLC on the console versions. For those not aware, Yun and Yang were first introduced in Street Fighter 3 and with their unique ansatsuken fighting style similar to that of Gen from SFIV, they became the Ryu and Ken of the game in terms of their intresting fighting style and awesome theme music. From the current playtests that have been running in Japanese arcades, it seems the characters are mostly unchanged from their SFIII counterparts apart from some obvious balancing being done to make the characters less broken (Yun in particular was considered to be the best character in the game). Location test footage after the jump.

Next month you will be able to take Street Fighter IV on the go with your iPhone after paying the lovey $10 price tag for the title. Not a bad asking price, especially when players might be hesitant to pay more with the touch screen controls.
The character roster, which you may have already seen in IGN’s video, consists of eight fighters. Ryu, Ken, Guile, Blanka, Chun-Li, Dhalsim, M. Bison and Abel all made the jump to the portable version. Capcom has yet to comment on if they will be adding more fighters down the line.
IGN got their grubby little hands on Street Fighter IV for the iPhone. While it is using a off screen camera, it is clear enough to see whats going on. Whether or not it actually looks like it controls well is up for you guys to decide.

Capcom’s Natsuki Shiozawa recently held a Question and Answer session on her blog. There she answered questions from fans. One of the questions asked about the possibility of a PSP port of the title, she responded saying that her and many other team members has intrests in creating a port to the PlayStation Portable.
Especially with the announcement of the port to iPhone, it doesn’t seem that unlikely. And ports of console fighters to the PSP isn’t anything new with the upcoming BlazBlue Portable heading to the system and the already released Tekken 6.
Rumors have been going around about a Super Street Fighter IV and while we had evidence T.Hawk might be in it, some screen shots have surfaced which confirms him along with another character, Juri.
The screen shots were found via Destructoid from JV247 who apparently had release the screen shots early. But from what I can tell, JV247’s site is currently down.
