Capcom today released the ultimate 2D brawler with Capcom Fighting Evolution for the Xbox. Capcom has brought together popular characters from five classic titles in the Street Fighter and other Capcom series, for intense two-on-two player battles. Capcom Fighting Evolution will also allow players to put their skills to the test in cross continent match ups via the Xbox Live online gaming service.

Capcom Fighting Evolution offers a diverse cast of players as well as additional hidden characters from each of the following titles: Street Fighter II, Darkstalkers, Street Fighter III, Red Earth and Street Fighter Alpha.
