Ever wondered what an Evil Ryu and Violent Ken would look like? Of course you have. And Street Fighter is bringing a world of combat to the Nintendo Switch – with Ultra Street Fighter II.
Featuring a stellar line-up of characters, players will be able to choose to fight in the classic pixel-art graphics for a retro nostalgia trip or enjoy a completely new modern look brought to you on the Nintendo Switch. In addition to the standard versus mode action, you can now choose to team up with a friend to take on a CPU opponent. Players can also use the Joy-Con feature to challenge a second player anytime, anywhere. Pull off flashy super combos and show your enemy who the strongest champion is!
For the first time in nearly 20 years, since Super Street Fighter II, two new characters join the fight; Evil Ryu and Violent Ken. This version of Ryu has succumbed to the Satsui no Hado and is now obsessed with fighting in order to prove he is the strongest. His former honorable self has been purged, allowing him to enjoy absolute power and embrace an unquenchable bloodthirst for battle.
Violent Ken is the result of M. Bison kidnapping and brainwashing Ken, enhancing his abilities with Psycho Power and twisting his brotherly rivalry with Ryu into hatred. Violent Ken is more ruthless, aggressive, and fearless with moves that feature purple flames instead of his signature fire.
Choose between classic pixel-art graphics for a retro nostalgia trip, or enjoy HD graphics created by UDON Entertainment.
Utilizing the system’s unique Joy-Con controllers, players can challenge each other in Arcade Mode, or team-up to both fight against the CPU at the same time.
Nintendo Switch TV, Tabletop, and Handheld modes allow you to play Ultra Street Fighter II at home or on-the-go with brand new single-player and multiplayer modes. More information and details on these modes, along with confirmed pricing and release timing, will be shared at a later date.
