Nintendo fans were pleased to find out that Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers was a surprise game in development by Capcom for the Nintendo Switch. IGN recently caught up with Yoshinori Ono to talk to him all about the game and ask him the inevitable question of whether the game will grace the Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Ono says that they spent a lot of time looking at the Switch and would only port it across if it sold extremely well. You can read the full interview on the game with Yoshinori Ono, here.

“If this title sells extremely well we’ll consider it. We put a lot of thought into how this can be fully enjoyed on the Nintendo Switch, so for the time being it’s only going to be on Switch.”

  1. $10 max for me and I love fighting games. Especially the Capcom vs Marvel games. I hope those come to the Switch. Just realized fighting games would be pretty perfect for the Switch too. Matter of fact a lot of genres would work extremely well on the Switch. Dang I think it will be quite a successful console after all.

    • Fighting games are actually kinda less than ideal on Switch since there’s no traditional d pad. at the Switch event people were only able to play this with the pro controller and there’s probably a reason for that

      • No doubt you’ll want to use something else than the joycon if you can, it’s just nice to have the option if nothing else is available.

        But saying it’s less than ideal? You can still use the pro controller or a fight stick to play USFII if you want,
        only setback is so far there’s no fight stick you can use without the dock.

    • That’s what we all thought at first, but it isn’t. They just used the same sprites.

      As you can see here, huge changes and rebalances were made for HDR, making it quite the different beast from Super Street Fighter II X: Grand Master Challenge
      USFII uses none of this, and instead takes base in SSFIIX:GMC again and develops new balance/additions from there.

      If you’re a casual fan just looking for some street fighter on a console, HDR and USFII is literally the same game,
      but for people into competitive fighting the two games couldn’t be more different.

  2. I’d probably buy this if it was a physical release. Since Street Fighter II is one of those games I have fond memories of. It’s the only Street FIghter game I ever liked. Then Mortal Kombat came along, and I was like “Street Fighter What?”. But nowadays, I’m not into fighting games at all.

  3. I feel like Ultra Street Fighter 2 was made because sony holds exclusivity to the newer game on consoles.
    So it’s like, they can’t put Street Fighter 5 on Wii U, so let’s put a hand drawn remake on the Wii U.
    Then again, this is probably partly based on sales of the VC Street Fighter games, and they felt a new installment for part 2 would be worth the time making for Switch.

  4. This sounds familiar. Oh yeah! They did the same with Resident Evil 0, Resident Evil Remake, Resident Evil 4, & Resident Evil Revelations! When those games sold well on Nintendo consoles, they got ported to other consoles years later. Some got their ports quicker than others.
