Puzzle Fighter Now Available for Smartphones, Worldwide

Capcom has released Puzzle Fighter for smartphone devices, worldwide.

The new mobile version of their puzzle-fighting game crossover is now available for iOS via the App Store and Android via Google Play. Featured above, you can view a new launch trailer for the game.

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


The classic arcade puzzle game gets modernized with a new look and new features, leaderboard support, guest account support, Color Blind Mode option (a series’ first), and more.

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 voice-overs 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 support characters can be chosen to further enhance or balance 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!

    Uh, no thank you Capcom. I’d rather have nothing.

    I actually was hopeful for this. I’ve wanted a good puzzler to put on my phone, and this seemed to fit the bill when it was announced. But the game doesn’t play well at all. The main play area is rather small, and if you’re playing on a phone (like me) you’ll often run into an issue where you accidentally touch the right side of the play area, which will flip the play area to show the other player’s play area. Completely pointless, since you already have a mini view of the opponent on the side.

    The visuals are meh to bad, and not anywhere near as charming as the original Puzzle Fighter sprites. Plus, it takes a heavy toll on performance.

    The biggest issue is the nature of the monetization of the game. It’s a puzzle game, sure fused with a fighting game, but a puzzle game first and foremost. Or rather, it should be. The real game is grinding for, AKA paying for, upgrades so that you deal more damage, have a stronger character, a better support character, and so on. If you want to play against someone and have a match where the one who actually plays the game best wins, then this isn’t the game you want to play.

    Puzzle Kombat when?

    That’s a shame, I would’ve excused that hideous mobile game artstyle if the game played like competitive Puzzle Fighter, instead of grind/pay-to-win nonsense.

    Can’t get over how crappy the visuals are. It honestly looks like the cheapest of cheap knock offs. I do like the game play , but the way they throw the micro transactions at you…

    I was happy to hear a new Puzzle Fighter game was coming along. Now? Not so much. Disappointed with how the character designs look (would’ve been happy if they went with the old Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo style instead.), controls are meh…I expected as much that the micotransaction hell would be front and center though, pretty much a curse when it comes to f2p mobile games, and just a lot of f2p games in general.

    Phoenix Wright is now becoming the victim.
