Online play for Street Fighter II on Virtual Console

Publish date:

The Virtual Console version of Super Street Fighter II: The New Challengers will offer online multiplayer over Nintendo's network.

It's a surprise addition to the game, but certainly a welcome one – particularly when you consider how unwilling many publishers have been to rework any of the elements in their back-catalogue digital re-releases.

Capcom has confirmed that this will be implemented not only in the Japanese version but also in the American and European releases too.

Super Street Fighter II: The New Challengers was originally released on the Sega Mega Drive and is arguably the most complete console version of SSFII.
