(Update) Ultra Street Fighter II hits Switch in May in Japan


Expected to cost at least $40 in the west

[Update: Capcom has confirmed that May 26 is its worldwide release date.]

Ultra Street Fighter II was revealed right alongside of the Switch, but nearly every detail about it at that time was unknown. Big things like the release date and the price were kept secret, which wasn’t great when Capcom hinted that it would be priced like a full retail game. Well, we have a final release date and pricing scheme for Japan, and that price point was fairly accurate.

Street Fighter producer Yoshinori Ono confirmed on Twitter that it’ll be released on May 26 both at retail and digitally, priced at 4,990 yen and 4,620 yen respectively (that’s roughly $45 and $40 in USD). While we still don’t have a western confirmation we can probably expect it to hit around that time, and for at least $40.

From what I played, and knowing how much I’ll play this with friends, I think I’ll get my money’s worth…in theory. The real question is how much effort did Capcom put into the final build.
