Street Fighter

Capcom isn’t ruling out more Street Fighter games for Switch. In a recent interview with USgamer, series producer Yoshinori Ono said the company “would consider” Nintendo’s console if there’s “another opportunity that makes sense for us”. Ono also indicated that Ultra Street Fighter II and Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection were financially successful.

Ono also has a positive outlook when it comes to Switch overall. Capcom views the system “as an important platform for all types of games,” he said.

Ono shared the following when asked for his thoughts about Switch in terms of Street Fighter and fighting games in general:

Entertainment One/Mark Gordon have secured a deal on a new TV series based on Street Fighter. Joey Ansah, Jacqueline Quella and Mark Wooding, who worked on the live-action web series Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist, will executive produce.

Here’s what we know thus far:

System: Switch
Release date: May 26, 2017
Developer:: Capcom
Publisher: Capcom

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.

The World Video Game Hall of Fame in its 2017 edition has inducted four new games that deserve it because of how they affected the video game industry: Donkey Kong, Halo: Combat Evolved, Pokémon Red & Green, and Street Fighter II.

The original Donkey Kong arcade game has been inducted because of how it helped to launch the career of one Shigeru Miyamoto, as well as counting as the first appearance of characters Donkey Kong and Super Mario (who was known as Jumpman).

Update by Brian: Cutting Room Floor, a website that specializes in unused/cut content, has been able to verify the authenticity of the Ryu sound files (thanks Anthony):

Of course, this doesn’t necessarily confirm that Ryu will be included as upcoming Smash Bros. DLC. We’ll just have to wait and see how everything pans out!

According to a poster on Reddit, who is claiming to be a part of the 3DS modding scene, there has been code discovered buried in the latest update to go live for Super Smash Bros. that would lead some to believe more characters will be to come in future DLC. It would appear that sound files have been interpreted as clues for two possible future additions.

One file is a Victory sound for Roy from the Fire Emblem series. The second one is also a sound file that includes the Ryu music from Street Fighter II. At this stage this is purely speculation as Nintendo has been known to leave unused data in games in the past.

We are sure we will see more DLC in the future for Super Smash. Bros. but for now this is just a rumor.


More than two years after its original release, Super Street Fighter IV: 3D Edition is now available on the 3DS eShop. Pricing is set at $19.99.

Originally, Super Street Fighter IV: 3D Edition made it out for the launch of the 3DS.
