Last month, Jeremy brought word that Street Fighter IV for the iPhone was getting Crimson Viper as part of a free update, but Capcom didn’t have a release date yet. Today, we know the release date and also know that she won’t be alone. In addition to C Viper, Capcom is giving us E. Honda for free as a playable fighter and alternate costumes for Ryu and Chun-Li (paid DLC.) The roster now stands at 12 fighters, and with Capcom holding the price pretty firm at $9.99, the hope is that we may yet see some more free fighters in the future.
