-2 Additional Characters: Evil Ryu and Violent Ken
-Way of the Hado mode
-HD Rumble (disabled by default)
-250+ page digital art book
Now let's go through the extras:
-2 additional characters:
Evil Ryu and Violent: Like Akuma, have higher attack/speed and able to teleport dash, but lowered defense/HP than there regular counterparts
Akuma is auto unlock from the get-go
You can select from 256 color variants. You can change their costume, hair and skin tone color
Transition is not smooth, it feels like you're going through grid-by-grid on a graph paper when select colors and feels like a chore than anything as it takes maybe half a second to go from one shade of color to the next. I'd say pre-select the ones you want first and don't bother with it again as it can be frustrating and time consuming
-Way of the Hado
If you ever wish to can Haduken or kamayamaya (Dragon Ball Z reference) motion to attack enemies then this is essentially it as you'll be playing on a on-rails shooter knocking out waves of enemies . But as you can probably predict, it will get repetitive after 5-10mins. Not only does this get old quick, but the motion detection is horrible. You essentially can do a haduken, shoruken, hurricane kick and block depending on your opponents choreographed gestures, but most of the time it does not register at all or it inputs the wrong move you did not intend for it to do.
You can play game in variety of controller configurations (except Way of the Hado mode), but i recommend the pro controller for the best experience since there's no arcade stick for the Ninendo Switch (or that i'm aware of at the moment). If you do play it on the switch controller(s) the HD rumble is very neat. If you do a sonic boom or get hit by one you feel a spinning motion throughout the controller. HD rumble is disabled by default, so you have to go to options to turn it on
Special moves can be mapped to button presses on screen like Super Street Fighter IV on the 3DS. This option is only available in handheld mode
There's a modernized training mode showing move sets.
Now you can tech throws (cancel out opponent's throw if you press the buttons the same time)
-250+ page digital art book
Very high quality HD scans. You can pinch and zoom, or swipe to next page with your fingers like on a smart phone or touch device with photos
Assuming the Nintendo Switch has battery left in it; you can essentially play anywhere even without a TV present
Lack of modes:
Wished they went with the Street Fighter Alpha 3 Max route on the PSP giving a dozen of different modes (Survival, 3v3, 100 kumite etc) and custom move sets. But the offers here are pretty limited and aside from the digital art book, and buddy battle*. Seems like a quick cash grab by Capcom taking advantage of the limited games library of the new console (Nintendo Switch) release.
*Buddy battle is just two on one battle. The team with two players have a shared health bar, and the single person team has beefed up stats to keep it balanced
This game is hard to recommend as it barely brings anything new to the table especially if you can get Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix on PS3, Xbox 360 for $10. Great if:
1. You want a nostalgia trip and you don't own the video game consoles (or at least anymore) that can play any iteration of Street Fighter II.
2. A collectors or fans of the Street Fighter II series line (as there's multiple iterations of it)
3. Just want the definitive version of the game. Knowing you'll sink in 100s of hours into the game
4. Want to play competitively? Have not heard of anything about the tournament scene that may lead up to EVO...may want to check around if there's a local scene you can be a part of or make your own
5. Really want to digital art book as physical artbooks can go for around $30. Some art work presented in the digital art book are from an out of print artbook that is really hard to obtain
6. Have extra cash in hand and want to play something on the Nintendo Switch before the next major release
Overall very hard purchase decision. I'd wait for a major price drop, which may be sooner than later seeing it's in the launch window game for a new system.
first, it was based on two new characters: violent ken (overpowered character) and evil ryu (good but never as fun as ken because his all you can's don't go all out and ryu is just too what shall i say, disciplined or boring?). i don't play video games for balance and fairness. i play to become a god. this game blows away balance and allows me to play ken and go all out and destroy everyone.
second, the opponent/AI in this version is also easier to defeat which means i can actually win and beat the game. the arcade super turbo version original from 1994 (the game which this is based on) was just too hard even on dip switch setting 1 of easy.
third, the BEST thing about this is that it is portable. that's a huge bonus. it can be played on the plane or a road trip or downtime for fun. no tv required. i do own a turbo express with street fighter 2 champion edition hu card but that system only has 2 buttons and a much lower resolution screen and eats 6 batteries for lunch. with the switch, i can now truly enjoy sf2 gaming on the go in full HD, with or without a bud.
i DO wish capcom would bring RAINBOW EDITION to the switch. you know, the souped up champion edition. that would be so much fun. until then, this is what we have for now.
Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers is a great game for fighting enthusiasts who own a switch and should not be missed. If you were the type of gamer who spent hours at the arcade plinking down quarters, or sitting at home with a SNES pad practicing dragon punches you already know what this one is about. If a lack of content outweighs your love of Street Fighter 2 then maybe this one isn't for you but if Guile's theme has been playing in your head as you browse this page then you just might have to buy this game, either way good luck and happy gaming!
