What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Street Fighter: Duel is a free-to-play martial arts action/role-playing game available for download on Android and iOS mobile devices. Set within Capcom's popular Street Fighter universe, players recruit various fighters from the series and form teams to fight in 3v3 real-time combat battles. The game requires a lot of character and inventory management as players progress and expand their collection of fighters. The roster of available characters represent a diversity of cultures, ethnicities, genders, and the like. Many characters, both male and female, are presented in revealing outfits, and some also have poses and animations that are meant to be more sexualized in nature. While the game is free-to-play, it does push players to spend money on in-game transactions, which can be for anything from new characters, cosmetic items, or resources to speed up progress.

What’s It About?
STREET FIGHTER: DUEL brings together the World Warriors of Capcom's hit fighting game together like never before in this mobile role-playing adventure, a first for the franchise. You'll collect all your favorite fighters from an ever-growing roster of more than 40 different characters from throughout the history of Street Fighter. Players will build a team of your favorite fighters and head out on a globe spanning competition against opponents. Each fighter comes with their own unique fighting styles and special moves, unlocked through battle and training, that can be chained with other fighters for massive combos. You can grab some friends and maybe make some new ones by forming a guild and working together on special group based events. Or, you can take your favorite team of fighters into the global fight scene and compete in player versus player events with competitors from around the world. No matter how you play or where you play, step up and teach the competition why you're the one true World Warrior.
Is It Any Good?
For more than three and a half decades, Capcom's Street Fighter games have shaped and defined the fighting game genre. Street Fighter: Duel takes the franchise in a completely different direction, throwing a Hadouken at the mobile market in this action-based role-playing game. The game has some great production value, with sharp visuals and animations faithful to the Street Fighter legacy. There's also plenty of content packed into the mobile app, things like multiple event types, community building guilds, exclusive cosmetics, character bios and backstories, and even an idling component that earns players rewards for simply having the game running. And yet, in spite of all this content, the game doesn't seem to give players much to actually do.
On thing players should be aware of going into Street Fighter: Duel is that, despite initial appearances, it's not a fighting game by any stretch of the imagination. It's more like a fan service spectacle. The core mechanic of the game is to line up a string of fighters as a team, watch them duke it out with another random team, and tap a button once enough charge builds on a power bar. And the game defaults to an autoplay mode so you don't even have to do that if it seems like too much work. Even managing your roster of fighters can be handled by auto-equipping gear and resetting some fighters to build up others. Overall, Street Fighter: Duel is less of a competitive game and more of a spectator sport. Still, for fans of the series, it's a nice bit of eye candy to sink some idle time into. Just don't expect it to pack much of a Dragon Punch.
