A couple more Ultra Street Fighter II details: development 50% complete, fighters gain experience, more

Some more details on Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers have emerged via Famitsu. In addition to some of the things we learned from the game’s box art, we now also know that you can customize your fighters in a variety of ways: you will be able to change their color palettes and play online using your unique-looking characters. Fighters will also gain experience and grow stronger as you progress through the game; it’s not known yet if this will only apply to singleplayer modes or if you will be able to use your powered-up fighters in online matches as well.
As for the new first-person mode we recently touched on, Capcom does indeed confirm that you play as Ryu and perform moves including Hadokens, Shoryukens, and Tatsumaki Senpukyakus. You’ll need to take down the Shadaloo Soldiers that appear on screen. Executing a Tatsumaki Senpukyaku is done based on hand positioning and movement speed of your arms.
Unsurprisingly, the game will also feature a Practice Mode where you can, well, practice your moves, combos and so on.
Finally, according to Capcom, development on the game is 50% complete – this likely means that the release of the game is still a ways off.

Boxes for upcoming Switch games have started to show up in Japan. One of these includes Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers, which has been floating around on places on 2ch. The box provides a couple of important details about the game.
First, it’s now officially confirmed that Ultra Street Fighter II will have a new first-person mode. This was originally teased in the game’s debut trailer last month. It’s a unique game mode called “Unleash! Ha”DO”ken”, and is specialized for use with the Joy-Con controllers in a first-person view.
Ultra Street Fighter II details online mode

Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers’ web page has updated with new information on how the various network modes will work. There will be an Arcade mode where you face against CPU’s to reach the end of the game, but players can cut in and challenge you, as if it is an arcade machine. The regular online mode will be divided between Casual and Ranked play. Ranked mode will have players winning or losing two types of points (Player and Battle) as they fight. It will feature Quick and Custom matches, as well as the ability to play with friends. Players can even create their own lobbies, setting personal rules and waiting for interested players to join. Casual mode will be a way to play without risking points. The game will also feature a local mode that will let you connect to other Switch consoles.
The page also indicates at the bottom that there will be the option for simplified Lite commands, allowing players to assign more complicated button combinations to single presses. It should be noted that this feature appeared in the 3DS version of Street Fighter IV, and players could make sure they were not matched up against players who used the Lite controls.

Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers will allow players to battle against each other online. Capcom shared the news during the Treehouse Live event a couple of days ago, which seemed to have gone mostly unnoticed. Online play is something that most would expect, but it wasn’t actually mentioned in the original announcement. It’s nice to have the confirmation in any case!
Thanks to Mike for the tip.
