Capcom has confirmed that Street Fighter IV 3D Edition lets you send a versus demo of the game wirelessly to a friend. They can then use that to play versus matches without the full game. Apparently, it will use both Nintendo 3DS Download Play Support and the 3DS’ Street Pass function to send a cut down version to other 3DS’ and fight them. The demo includes Ryu and a single stage.
“Of course if the download version was the same as the full version then Capcom would go bankrupt,” producer Yoshinori Ono said at Nintendo’s 3DS preview event in Amsterdam last night. “But there’s a technical limitation on how much data we can provide via 3DS Download Play.”
Versus battles will be possible even if the host player drops out, so those who play the downloaded version can continue to play Ryu versus Ryu matches against each other until they turn off their 3DS or play/do something else.
