Ultra Street Fighter II – special first-person mode confirmed, art gallery also in

Posted on February 12, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Switch

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.

To further explain the name, “hadoken” is ??? in Japanese. For this mode, Capcom has removed the ? and replaced it with “Do”, making it ?Do?. We don’t know how the mode’s name will be handled in the English version, but it’s almost like a neat little play on words.

A screenshot on the box has a timer and seems to show multiple Shadaloo Soldiers. This is speculation, but perhaps it’s a mode in which you hold the Joy-Con and literally shoot hadoken, sort of like a rail shooter.

The box also shows that Ultra Street Fighter II will have some sort of art gallery. Players can view over 250 pages of artwork.

As one final note, the box contains a logo for the MT Framework engine. It does appear that Capcom’s mainstream engine is capable of producing Switch software.

Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers doesn’t have a release date yet, but Capcom has indicated that the company wants to have it out sooner rather than later.

    Prob gonna be called “Hado-Con” in English if they want to stick to bad puns

  • NintendoPSXTheSecond

    I’m pretty sure that’s not M. Bison himself but rather Shadaloo soldiers. Just a nitpick regarding the article.

    • Brian

      Ah, the image quality makes it somewhat tough to tell, but you might be right. That might make more sense anyway. So… updated!

      • NintendoPSXTheSecond

        Apologies if I came off rude, but glad to help the accuracy!

  • Well then, maybe it isn’t just a port of 2005 game

    • Exposer

      Because it isnt, that is the remix version draw by UDON, this is not the case.

      • calactyte

        I just want to clarify, that SF2 HD REMIX (which I assume Wendigo was referencing when they talked about the 2005 port) was released in 2008 in NA and 2009 in Europe.

        However the graphics for the characters and backgrounds ARE the same ones UDON drew for the 2008 released game with only minor variations. I’ve studied the two games side by side and look exactly the same.

  • Chaos_Knight

    They’re not exactly Bisons. Those are Shadaloo grunts from SFV.

  • theFooFighter

    I’m probably going to end up with this but I wish we were getting Street fighter 3 instead

    • metalpants

      All of my YES!!!

  • Lilla My

    I was never good at making reliably multiple hadoken in a row, it’s maybe my chance :p.
    And what about the Shakunetsu (red) Hadoken? Injury by twisting arms?

  • TDude73

    I’m already completely sold on Ultra Street Fighter II for the Switch. First person view mode and 250 artwork designs inside the Nintendo Switch Game Card. One of the many reasons to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of SF II on the Super NES (Super Famicom in Japan).

  • unless it allows me to throw real life fireballs, i’m not interested

  • Drybonekoopa85

    I was already excited to pick this up but this just sweetened the deal! Nice! 🙂

  • JasonBall

    So like a shooter game where you shoot hadoukens?

  • Exy

    More fighting games need first-person games. Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate on Vita had one and it was a neat distraction, but it would have been better if the player’s avatar weren’t so unsightly.

  • Kid X

    I hope they bring Street Fighter V to the Switch

    • Addy

      Only if it has an arcade mode.

    • Felipe M.

      Not a chance. SFV is a PS4/PC exclusive.

  • Xaessya

    “First person mode confirmed” You mean its confirmed now and not when they first showed it?

  • Felipe M.

    Is there also going to be an English US/UK physical release? How much will the RRP be?

  • Sounds ridiculous… not necessarily in a bad way

  • Trinity

    Honestly hope this comes to PS4, i’d buy it day 1

  • Soda Popinski

    This coming to PS4 and/or XB1?

  • Truthhurts24

    Hope it comes to Xbox

    • Brandon Hardacre

      Nope. Switch exclusive.

      • Truthhurts24

        ok

  • Supporter

    Super Street Fighter IV 3DS’ Dynamic Mode fully realized!

  • Brandon Hardacre

    To all the people begging for it on the Xbox or PS4. It’s a Switch exclusive.
