The Street Fighter 4 video game is now available to select Google Play customers.
Capcom recently released the title for residents of Japan. The game has been available for Android users who have owned the LG HD smartphones that launched a year ago and now it has come to all customers in the nation.
Android users also were able to download a cracked version of the game from XDA and now they can finally access an official version.
The game is in English so users in the U.S. can play it if they manage to gain access to it.
Street Fighter 4 is not available in the U.S. Google Play store and neither is any other Street Fighter title. Many Street Fighter games have been available in the iTunes Store for quite some time.
Residents of Japan can purchase the game for $3.48.
Street Fighter 4 was released in the U.S. and Japan in 2008 as an arcade game and eventually was ported to popular consoles such as the PlayStation 4 and Xbox 360 in 2009.
It is the first Street Fighter title made specifically for HD screens.
In March of 2009, the game had managed to sell 3 million copies worldwide so Capcom decided to follow it up with another version called Super Street Fighter 4. That version went on to sell 1.8 million units by March of 2011.
The games plot takes place between the events of Street Fighter II and Street Fighter III, so it features many of the popular characters of the past including Ken, Ryu, Chun-Li, M Bison, Guile and Vega.
It also has some new characters such as Abel, Crimson Viper, Rufus, and El Fuerte.
