Capcom Has Announced Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers for The Nintendo Switch

Hey World Warriors!

As announced on the Nintendo Switch Presentation 2017 in Tokyo, Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers, is coming to the Nintendo Switch!

Capcom and Nintendo have a long history together, going all the way back to Street Fighter II on the Super Nintendo Entertainment System in 1991, so we are happy to bring the newest edition of Street Fighter II to the Nintendo Switch.

For the first time in nearly 20 years, since Super Street Fighter II, two new characters join the fight; Evil Ryu and Violent Ken. This version of Ryu has succumbed to the Satsui no Hado and is now obsessed with fighting in order to prove he is the strongest. His former honorable self has been purged, allowing him to enjoy absolute power and embrace an unquenchable bloodthirst for battle.

Violent Ken is the result of M. Bison kidnapping and brainwashing Ken, enhancing his abilities with Psycho Power and twisting his brotherly rivalry with Ryu into hatred. Violent Ken is more ruthless, aggressive, and fearless with moves that feature purple flames instead of his signature fire.

Choose between classic pixel-art graphics for a retro nostalgia trip, or enjoy HD graphics created by UDON Entertainment.

Utilizing the system’s unique Joy-Con controllers, players can challenge each other in Arcade Mode, or team-up to both fight against the CPU at the same time.

Nintendo Switch TV, Tabletop, and Handheld modes allow you to play Ultra Street Fighter II at home or on-the-go with brand new single-player and multiplayer modes. More information and details on these modes, along with confirmed pricing and release timing, will be shared at a later date.

Yoshinori Ono, Executive Producer of the Street Fighter series, will be making an appearance on Nintendo’s Treehouse Live on January 13th to showcase Ultra Street Fighter II. Watch it live on Nintendo’s Twitch or YouTube Channel.

        He’s right, though! This is pathetic when the PS4 has Street Fighter V. Besides… Where’s Monster Hunter!? Where’s Resident Evil!? Where’s that little fucking Blue Bomber at!? lol

            I’m chill. Just speaking out for those that do want those on Switch & would appreciate at least an official word from Capcom that these titles will come. As for me, I’m getting Resident Evil games on Sony consoles from now on as I got 0, 1, 4, 5, 6, & Revelations 2 digitally with 7 preordered. I just wish they’d release 2, 3, Code Veronica, & Revelations on PS4, too, so I can have every important Resident Evil game in the franchise on PS4. I am wondering where the hell Monster Hunter is, though… *eye twitch*

      Actually huge amounts of work was put into making SSFII HD, and with the mechanics being based on Super Street Fighter II X: Grand Master Challenge – the final and best arcade version of the game – and then retooled and rebalanced from years of tournament data on that game, you could consider this the ultimate Street Fighter game, or at least the Ultimate Street Fighter II.

      Only adding two new characters to this new version of it, sure, that’s sorta phoned in.
      But it could be this game is further rebalanced from tournament data on HD Remix as well, and if so this is a pretty good release.
      Of course, this matters more to the core fighter fans than a general crowd who would surely be happier with more content-focused releases. (It would be nice if they put those resources into doing more work with SFV)

  1. First of all, Capcom. You can’t be fucking serious with another Street Fighter II rehash. As if that game haven’t overmilked enough.

    Second of all, why another 2D fighter when you can easily make a 3D one? Street Fighter II is outdated in more ways than one. Even I’d rather have another SFIV in this case.

    As I said to Brandon above… Where’s Monster Hunter!? Where’s Resident Evil!? Where’s that little fucking Blue Bomber at!? lol Where’s Street Fighter IV, V!? Where’s… *looks at the list of Capcom characters in Project X Zone 2* Where’s Ace Attorney!? Where’s fucking Darkstalkers!? How about reviving Captain Commando, Star Gladiator, & Strider!? Didn’t you motherfuckers ask people about franchises they’d love to see get revitalized!? I could have sworn that was you asking that! I could be wrong. I could be right! I could be fucking dead! I could be fucking on Mars! I honestly don’t fucking know right now! I’m so fucking wired right now that I think I might be supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!

      That’s a Mary Poppins reference for anyone not born in the 90s & got exposed to that awesome movie by their family and/or friends! Watch some old shit & honor the past a bit, bitches!

      1. Yes, that movie’s great stuff. So about “Where’s Street Fighter V”, they sure used footage from it in this very trailer.
        Could be a tease for SFV Switch release.
        And while I’m madly grabbing at straws, I notice they used SFV’s logo design to type out “Street Fighter” in this game’s logo. You know, as if they wanted to cash in on this nostalgia to increase franchise awareness and improve SFV.sales.
