Street Fighters Ryu, Ken, Chun-Li and Blanka brawl their way into Combo Crew.
Legendary fighters available as i.A.P. in The Game Bakers’ latest hit on iOS and Android.
MONTPELLIER, FRANCE – October 24, 2013 – The Game Bakers are ecstatic to deliver four fantastic new fighters in Combo Crew, through their collaboration with Capcom®. After Viewtiful Joe™, the new combatants are none other than Ryu, Ken, Chun-Li and Blanka from Street Fighter™ fame. To celebrate these glorious additions into the game, a new version of Combo Crew has been wooshed onto the Apple App Store and Google Play.
The popular and critically acclaimed Combo Crew is a tactile brawler in which you get to fight with your fingers, using a clever double-swipe mechanics to unleash a wide variety of combos. No virtual buttons. No virtual d-pad.
The Capcom characters deliver a great extension of fighting styles and unique combos to the crew of fighters already available. The update also features major improvements to the gameplay mechanics; in particular the possibility to counter in the middle of a combo, and being attacked by multiple enemies at once, which overall results in an even more hectic rhythm of the action.
The game has been available for 1.99$ (1.79€), but to celebrate the addition of the new heroes, it is temporarily free this week on the Apple App Store and discounted by 50% on Google Play, at US$ 0.99 (0.89€) since Google Play doesn’t offer the possibility to go temporarily free. Ryu, Ken, Chun-Li, Blanka and Joe are offered as in-app purchases for 0.99$ (0.89€) each.

Also after adding in heroes from Squids, Another World and Viewtiful Joe, we had to finish with a big punch!.”
