An Example Of Touchscreen Combos In Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition


A few months ago, Capcom revealed that Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition on the Nintendo 3DS has a touch-control feature that lets you assign up to four moves to the 3DS touchscreen. Here’s a look at that feature.


While we weren’t certain how flexible this was in the past, new screenshots suggest that everything from specific combos to Specials to Supers can be mapped to the touchscreen. Here’s one where Akuma’s got both a Super and an Ultra assigned to the touch buttons. 



And below is one of Dudley with a regular combo and a Special. We aren’t sure just how long touchscreen combos can be, or if you can somehow assign combos that require timed dashes like going from Sakura’s EX Hurricane Kick into her Haru Ranman Ultra.


Super Street Fighter IV is a Nintendo 3DS launch game and will be out on March 27th alongside the system in North America, and on March 25th in Europe.
