Super Street Fighter IV 3DS Has Special Move Hotkeys

Street Fighter IV for the iPhone mapped your special moves to a single button. Super Street Fighter IV 3D for the Nintendo 3DS simplifies things even further.


Rather than a single button for your focus or special moves, Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition gives you four panels on the touchscreen of the 3DS to play with. There you'll be able to assign up to four moves and combos, activating them with a touch of your finger.

This is apparently what producer Yoshinori Ono meant when he told Kotaku "We are going to support them by providing an interface on the touchpad so they can play not knowing how the game used to be played," at GamesCom earlier this year.


It almost seems too easy, though I doubt the big-name console players will begrudge 3DS owners their training wheels.

I'm not a huge Street Fighter player, but I always thought the point of those games were to learn and master all the different button combinations for the moves for each character, so doesn't taking that away from a Street Fighter game take away the main attraction of the game a little?

I'm not trying to bash the iPhone or 3DS versions, I'm actually genuinely curious.
