The first print reviews of Capcom’s Street Fighter IV are in and so far, so very good, reports the Capcom Blog.

The Official PlayStation Magazine has given the game 5/5 saying that SF IV is “a proud addition to the Street Fighter legacy that fighting fans will love” and that the fighter “kicks ass and takes names.”

The Official Xbox Mag chimes in with a 9.5/10 score and says that Street Fighter “does the impossible: Preserves the past while embracing the future.”

Sounds good.

Games out 20th February.
