Street Fighter II sold well on the Nintendo Switch, so Capcom’s bringing more games over.
On May 26, 2017, Capcom released another version of Street Fighter II. This time it was on the Nintendo Switch, and the game was Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers.
The game features new single and multiplayer features, as well as the first roster additions we’ve seen in almost 20 years, Evil Ryu and Violent Ken. For Street Fighter fans, it’s actually pretty rad.
It’s a solid fighting game, too.
Now, according to Wall Street Journal’s Takashi Mochizuki, Capcom’s indicated that they’re so happy with the game’s success on Switch that they’re gonna ramp up game releases for the new platform. Here’s the tweet.
Capcom: 450K is 1Q figure for Ultra Street Fighter II, above its expectation. Also "starting to prepare" multiple Switch-version titles.

What those titles are obviously remains to be seen. We could see more classic ports with modern twists, or maybe we’ll see some completely new efforts.
This is good news for the Nintendo Switch and its fans. More third-party support is always great.
