See Ultra Street Fighter 2's First-Person Mode On Nintendo Switch

The Way of the Hado looks tiring.


Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers, the Nintendo Switch version of Capcom's classic fighting game, will feature a first-person mode that utilises the console's Joy-Con controllers. Video footage of the mode has appeared online, showing off how it's played.

The mode was shown during a Japanese Capcom TV stream and seems to be called "Way of the Hado." It functions pretty much as you'd imagine, with players holding a Joy-Con in each hand, then thrusting their hands out to throw fireballs at enemies that appear on screen.

Using an uppercut motion it's possible to execute a Shoryuken and swiping both hands laterally executes a Tatsumaki Senpukyaku. The goal is to keep knocking out the enemies for as long as possible and build up a high score. Players are awarded points based on clear times and combos.

Although Ultra Street Fighter II for Switch is a 2D sprite-based game, Way of the Hado is 3D and uses assets from Street Fighter IV. Capcom released a version of Street Fighter IV for 3DS and included an over-the-shoulder perspective option.

It's yet to be seen if there's depth beyond this but the mode does have overweight versions of M. Bision to pummel, which is an excellent addition if you ask me. You can see the mode in the video above by skipping to the 2:56:45 mark.

Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers is set for release on Nintendo Switch in 2017.
