Trio of Super Nintendo Street Fighter II Titles Released Through Wii U eShop

By on August 22, 2013 at 11:47 am

Capcom announced earlier this week that they would be releasing three classic Super Nintendo versions of Street Fighter II as digital downloads on Wii U, and they are now available as of today’s eShop update.

These Virtual Console versions of Street Fighter II: The World Warrior, Street Fighter II Turbo: Hyper Fighting and Super Street Fighter II: The New Challengers are set at a price of $7.99 each. Additionally, North American players will be able to take advantage of a special discount – buying one of the titles will allow them to purchase the other two at 50% off the original price. Meanwhile, European players can buy two games and get the third one free.

All three games feature Miiverse support but do not include online play.

Below, you’ll find trailers for each of these new releases. Capcom-Unity also put together a retrospective that takes a look at the design and history of the world warriors throughout each game, so check that out as well if you’re in the mood for some nostalgia.

D3v has worn many hats within the general fighting game community. The self proclaimed "Asian white boy" from the Philippines has done everything from arcade stick modification to match commentary. When not writing for Shoryuken's front page, D3v spends part of his time running tournaments in the Philippines, including the country's biggest fighting game event, Manila Cup.

    Without online I dont’ see the point of getting them over the ones on the original wii *which are cheaper*.

    Only one of the three is still amazing *two if you want to enjoy that og nostalgia*.

    Nostalgia? C’mon Wii, give us an ST port.

    Was plan on picking it up but dropped the idea as soon as I saw “no online”.

      Capcom added online to that one sega version they released on the wii, so I don’t know why they couljdn’t make online for these *especially hyper fighting :(*

    thats the millionth attempt by capcom to milk sf in any way possible.

    I can’t imagine even wanting that port of WW. It’s missing so much animation and has those weird high- and low-pitched voices for the specials.
    Turbo and Super are worth playing still, but I wouldn’t pay more than $5 for either of them.

    This has Sold me on the Wii U, yup I haven’t emulated these games on my computer for years and years

    I gotta play this on that Wii U pad or it won’t be legit

    I actually like some of the music in the SNES versions better than the original songs (Guile’s SNES WW/HF theme, Cammy and Fei Long’s SNES NC themes). Although you could just listen to it on YouTube if wanted to :

    Bottom line: Hyper Fighting needs a good online-enabled port, and this article isn’t about that 🙁

    SF4AE was on sale not long ago for $7.49. The whole game. Hey, let’s pay more for a crap console port from 1994 with no online. Brilliant WIIU!

    What a ripoff! I paid $2.99 for SF II, $2.99 for SSFII, $3.99 for SFIIT, and $9.99 for SFA2 on SNES 2 years ago.
