New Puzzle Fighter Announced for Smartphones

Capcom has announced a new Puzzle Fighter game for iOS and Android devices.

The game is being developed by Capcom Vancouver and will launch entirely free, worldwide, sometime later this year. Featured above, you can view the game’s announcement trailer.

Here’s a rundown on the game, via Capcom:


Puzzle Fighter features an outstanding roster of legendary characters and stages from popular Capcom franchises. Fan-favorites such as Ryu, Ken or Chun-Li (Street Fighter), X (Mega Man), Morrigan (Darkstalkers), Frank West (Dead Rising), and more come to life with VO and cinematic special moves. Players pick one main character each with their own strengths and benefits, to face-off in explosive gem-crushing action. In addition, two assist characters can be chosen to further enhance the abilities of the main character. Simple to learn but deep in strategy, this highly addictive puzzle game has players strategically building up gems and destroying them to unleash epic combos that can knock out their opponent. Thrilling real-time versus battles, rewarding single player options and an array of content to unlock await in this ultimate puzzle fight!


A soft launch for the game is set to kick off soon in selected countries. Puzzle Fighter will be playable in public for the first time at this year’s PAX West expo, within Capcom’s booth.
