There is no denying that the Nintendo Switch will be one of the most innovative consoles ever released. So with its release date a little less than two months away, it’s not surprising that the focus has switched to its release titles. However, for some, what they’ve heard about so far has been anything but overwhelming.
Nintendo Switch Titles
Now if you’re one of those who has felt a little let down by Nintendo and its already publicized launch list of games. It is safe to say that many more will be made available post device launch. Two of which include FIFA for those with love for Soccer. And Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers. With the latter being a Nintendo Switch Exclusive title, which is good news for all those who love the franchise. But, not so good news for those who like to fight in 2D, but do not plan to purchase a Switch.
Not so Exclusive after all!
However, all is not lost, as it seems as though a port to other platforms solely depends on sales. Discussing the upcoming fighter title at the recent Nintendo Switch launch event. The games producer Yoshinori Ono talked to IGN and said:

“If this title sells extremely well we’ll consider it… We put a lot of thought into how this can be enjoyed on the Nintendo Switch. So for the time being it’s only going to be on Switch.”
So, while Ono doesn’t say exactly when Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers will make its way onto the PS4 and Xbox One. However, he does suggest that if all goes well, that Capcom won’t rule such a move out.
Ultra Street Fighter II – The Details
As you may expect, right now there is very little information available about Ultra Street Fighter II. In fact, all we know is that players will be able to choose from classic style graphics. Or a more update date look and as always be able to play against friends or with them against the CPU.
Additionally, the bosses from the first 1990’s game are back, however, how much they will feature in this new revamped version isn’t known.
While not among the much anticipated Nintendo Switch launch titles, Ono has said that Capcom does not want to wait too long. Having said that, no official date is being given, but seeing as the Switch will launch March 3rd. It is highly likely that somewhere within a few days to a week after that is possible.
