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.
