Street Fighter has had a bit of an odd history on mobile. Sure, there have been plenty of Street Fighter IV ports on iOS, but Android hasn't really seen any prominent releases outside of Japan. Well, today that all changes because Street Fighter IV Champion Edition is finally here. It may have taken 7 months for Capcom to port this from iOS to Android, but it would appear the wait was worth it as this is a full-on premium experience that can be purchased for the low low price of $4.99.

I recall with fondness the endless speculative arguments I heard around the elementary school lunch table in the 90s: who would win in a fight between Batman and Wolverine? Goku and Superman?

It's all about animals beating the crap out of each other. Check out the eye-popping trailer below:
