Street Fighter: Duel was first revealed almost a year ago as a special collaboration mobile game between Capcom and Tencent for the Chinese market, and now we can finally see what it plays like.

The first five minutes of Duel's opening fights and story have appeared online which confirms it's not a fighting game, but I'm also not entirely sure what to call it.

Gameplay wise, Street Fighter: Duel looks to be a hero-collecting team-building RPG with meters building to pull off special moves and Super combos for added flair in the SF world — which seems to be taking place in Metro City.

One thing that'll immediately jump out is the fact that they're using the SF4-era designs for the world warriors instead of the newer SF5 renditions. It's even stranger that they re-use the same audio for attacks but then switch over to Chinese for actual dialogue.

The intro fight has Ryu, Ken and Chun-Li teaming up against Juri until the big dictator himself decides to crash the party.

After M. Bison shows up and blows everyone over in pretty much one attack, Ryu gets back up and taps into the Satsui no Hado to hit the Shadaloo leader with a powered-up Shoryuken that leads to a button-mashing meter. Fulfilling that busts into a comic-book styled cinematic of the martial artist slugging the boss around.

No new release information has been revealed at this time regarding when it will launch in China and if it'll be available worldwide at some point as well, but at least it seems to have come a ways since copying UI elements straight from Persona 5 in its initial unveiling.
