Capcom is bringing seminal fighting game Street Fighter 2 to Nintendo Switch in an all-new way. Ultra Street Fighter 2: The Final Challengers will include a mix of old-school, 16-bit era graphics and revamped artwork that was previously featured in Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo HD Remix.

Ultra Street Fighter 2: The Final Challengers will also include two newly playable characters: Evil Ryu and Violent Ken.

According to the Japanese Ultra Street Fighter 2 website, players will be able to play cooperatively against a CPU opponent, and the game will feature a simplified mode with one-hit kills.

The original Street Fighter 2 was first released in arcades in 1991, and ported the following year to Super Nintendo. Capcom later released Street Fighter 2 Turbo: Hyper Fighting and Super Street Fighter 2: The New Challengers for SNES, all of which ultimately came to Nintendo’s Virtual Console service.

The most recent entry in the Street Fighter series, Street Fighter 5, is currently exclusive to PlayStation 4 and Windows PC.
