Nintendo announced today that Ultra Street Fighter ΙΙ: The Final Challengers, is coming to Nintendo Switch. If you have been looking to play an old school fighting game on the Switch, this is your chance.
There have been some changes from the classic version of this game, but it looks to be for the better. All of the original characters and bosses are there, but there are two new roster additions: Evil Ryu and Violent Ken. Nintendo also added newly updated graphics, new modes, and even the ability to change your character’s costume color. Nintendo is also giving you the option to choose whether you want the modern graphics, or the retro-pixel art from back in the day.
One of the new modes is called “Way of the Kado” and is a first-person single player experience. You goal is to defeat the Shadaloo army using special moves, that uses the motion controls (Joy-Con) of the Switch. There is also a co-op mode where you can team up with a friend and take on a CPU opponent. You can take your battles online. Duke it out with a friend in a local multiplayer or take the fight to online Ranked or Casual matches.
As an added bonus, there are 1,500 illustrations in a 250+ page digital art book from the last 30 years of Street Fighter.
