Capcom Vancouver is Bringing Back Puzzle Fighter for Mobile Devices

New characters, new graphics, and some new gameplay.

Capcom Vancouver (Dead Rising 2-4) is bringing back Capcom's Puzzle Fighter for a modern, mobile audience. The new Puzzle Fighter is a new sequel built from the ground up with new graphics and new characters.

The original Street Fighter Puzzle Fighter game featured characters from the Street Fighter and Darkstalkers franchises. The new Puzzle Fighter expands the roster by bringing back classic Street Fighter and Darkstalkers characters like Ryu, Chun-Li and Morrigan while adding Mega Man X, Dante from Devil May Cry, Frank West and Chuck Greene from Dead Rising. Each character will have voiceovers and cinematic special moves.

Capcom Puzzle Fighter on Mobile

Capcom's Puzzle Fighter series combines two genres, fighters and puzzlers, by getting players to try and defeat one another by completing combos in a tetris-style puzzle game. The new mobile edition will modernize the gameplay and give players a primary character, but also two support characters for added stat bonuses. The new mobile version even includes a real-time online mode that will players go head-to-head at the same time.

The new Puzzle Fighter will have a soft launch in select countries at a yet-to-be-determined date, with a global release planned for late 2017. If you're going to be in Seattle for PAX West, the Capcom booth will be demoing the game for attendees.
