Ultra Street Fighter 2: The Final Challengers will let you palette-swap every character

22 Feb

The increasingly curious Ultra Street Fighter 2 will let you alter each fighter’s colours when it hits the Switch this year.


Image credit for the screen above goes to Gamer, a Japanese website that seems to have the exclusive look at several different palette-swap choices you’ll be offered in the latest iteration of Street Fighter 2.

As far as gimmicks go it’s a neat one, although we’re more excited about how bafflingly terrible the first-person mode looks.

According to some translations made by Perfectly Nintendo, you’ll be able to save ten different variations for each character and use them online. The cart for Ultra Street Fighter 2 will also contain over 1400 pieces of artwork to browse.

Ultra Street Fighter 2: The Final Challengers is a Switch exclusive. A release date has not been nailed down.

Ultra Street Fighter 2’s Nintendo Switch first-person mode looks worse than you think

16 Feb

Different people have different ideas of fun, of course, but this will hardly sell anyone on the Switch.

Earlier this week, it was revealed that Ultra Street Fighter 2, the Nintendo Switch exclusive, is going to include a first-person mode that uses the console’s Joy-Cons.

It’s called the Way of the Hado, and it was shown off by Capcom Japan in a livestream earlier. Around the 2h 56m mark, a Capcom developer attaches two Joy-Cons to his hands, and begins to do motions that result in throwing fireballs, Hadoukens, and Dragon Punches.

The only problem is, it never looked smooth, and outside of the relatively simple input requirements you have for each move, the mode looks like an afterthought. There’s considerable lag, too, though this could be improved by release.

Overall, it looks very similar to the bonus modes you’d find in Wii ports of games, and in other Wii shovelware in general.

Ultra Street Fighter 2: The Final Challengers is out sometime this year for the Nintendo Switch.

Switch exclusive Ultra Street Fighter 2 has a first-person mode

Switch gamers can play Street Fighter 2 as (probably) never before.


As spotted by some eagle-eyed fans in the Ultra Street Fighter 2: The Final Challengers reveal trailer, the new Switch exclusive version of Capcom’s legendary versus brawler includes a first-person mode.

Nintendo Everything harvested this intel from a photo of the Ultra Street Fighter 2’s box, now that Switch images are starting to come out of Japan.

According to the site’s translation, the new mode is designed for JoyCon controllers. It’s called “Unleash! Hadoken”, where the Japanese character for “do” has been placed with the English letters, presumably as a play on the fact that a first-person, motion-controlled mode is more like really “doing” what the character is.

There’s a screenshot on the box if you really squint, and you can see multiple enemies and a timer. That suggests it won’t just be a perspective twist on normal Ultra Street Fighter 2 gameplay but something quite different. Given the name, fireballs are likely to be involved.

Ultra Street Fighter 2 has not been dated beyond 2017. Look for it sometime after switch launches in early March.

One other major point of interest from the Ultra Street Fighter 2 Switch box is that there’ll be an art gallery with over 250 images. Nice.

Ultra Street Fighter 2: The Final Challengers announced for Switch, with apologies to that leak we called garbage

Ultra Street Fighter 2: The Final Challengers is coming to the Nintendo Switch.

The arcade classic was shown briefly in a sizzle reel, and was later detailed on the Capcom Unity blog.

The game will introduce two new characters, Evil Ryu and Violent Ken (the definition of ‘new’ here is pretty loose), and you’ll be able to switch between HD and classic pixel-art graphics.

We’d heard rumours, but weren’t inclined to believe them at first. The leak, of course, turned out to be very accurate. Sorry, Zero.

Pricing and release date information are not available yet, but Capcom are promising that they will be delivered at a later date.
