Ultra Street Fighter II – tech analysis and Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix comparison
DigitalFoundry is back with its latest analysis focusing on Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers. The full rundown is in the video below.
Key highlights are that the game runs in native 1080p while the Way of the Hado mode has some dips below 60 frames per second. Compared to last-gen’s Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix, character portraits, the versus screen, and character select screen have been reworked to more closely match the original game, but Ultra Street Fighter II oddly has static backgrounds with the new style.

Capcom COO: Praise for the Switch, will see how to support the system while looking at Ultra Street Fighter II

Japanese business publication Toyo Keizai published an interview with Capcom president and COO Haruhiro Tsujimoto today (thanks to NeoGAF users CalmMind and zeromcd73 for the translation) . Among other things, the interview was about the Switch. Tsujimoto praised the system and its unique selling point – he talked about how his primary school-age daughter, who has never wanted a home console before, now wants a Switch. He also said that developing games that users want to play is crucial – in the DS & Wii era, third party developers were initially struggling with making compelling games that make use of a system’s unique features. Nintendo had to lead the way, essentially, and show other developers how to make games that fit the hardware.
Tsujimoto also briefly talked about Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers on the Switch. He stated that Capcom will think of how to support the Switch while observing how Ultra Street Fighter II does on the system. Of course, this could be interpreted in a lot of ways, though one would hope that the sales of a remake won’t be the only factor Capcom takes into consideration for their future support of the system.
The Great Ace Attorney 2 – case 2 details
The Great Ace Attorney 2 is featured in this week’s issue of Famitsu with some new coverage. Specifically, the magazine covers the game’s second case. Read the latest information from Famitsu below, courtesy of Court Records.
– The victim of this case was a fellow lodger staying in the Garridebs’ apartment like Souseki
– The two were known to get into arguments over the finer points of Shakespeare
– Souseki made the tea that seems to have poisoned the victim
– When Souseki found his body, he was arrested
– Souseki insists the place is cursed, which is part of what gets Holmes to take the case
– Dusting for fingerprints is in the game by way of some of Holmes’ inventions
– Decago is one of the witnesses in the trial
– Ryuunosuke spots him during the investigation trying to peer into the flat (which is impressive given the windows are bricked up)
– At the AA 15th anniversary concert, a video showing motion capture for a tap-dancing character was shown
– The article mentions that this case takes place “before Souseki returns to Japan”
As a small aside, we’ve attached some new art for The Great Ace Attorney 2 below.
[Review] Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers
Posted on 4 weeks ago by Dennis(@LyonHart_) in Reviews, Switch, Switch eShop | 21 Comments | 0 Likes
Release date: May 26, 2017
Chances are nowadays that when you talk to someone about fighting games, one of the first titles to come to mind is Street Fighter. The series has spanned decades, with 2017 marking its 30th anniversary which is further celebrated with the updated release of one of the most seminal fighting games of all time, Street Fighter II. Before the imminent release of Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers on Switch, the game had already returned many times in the past. To some this may seem excessive, but for the most hardcore of Street Fighter fans, it’s a way to continually preserve the history of one of the most successful fighting game franchises of all time, as well as one of the most important titles in the series. However you look at it, Ultra Street Fighter II has a lot to love about it if you’re an avid Street Fighter fan, but may leave a lot to be desired to those looking to jump in for the first time or have casually spent time with the series over the last three decades.
