Nintendo and Capcom have revealed Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers.
While also having a ridiculously long name, the HD re-release of the classic fighting game lets you play with the newly retouched spites and visuals, or the classic style.
Players will be able to fight each other via TV mode and Table Mode, as well as progress through the single player in Portable Mode. A release date was not announced.
Here’s some more screenshots to compare both the new and the old styles:
Here’s more on the game, via Capcom:
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.
