With a new iteration of the Street Fighter II series being developed and released by Capcom for the Nintendo Switch, a lot of the old school players are popping their heads out of hibernation with wonder about the game. Will they maintain what was already established through the numbered updates before? Will it be a good game? Will we get burned like a lot of people felt after the release of Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix?

Echo Fox’s Justin Wong was at the event and able to get his hands on the game. As he played, he was gracious enough to tweet out what he learned about the game. Some things that he noted were that you can tech throws instead of soften them as in Super Turbo, characters will have alternate costumes available on the select screen, Evil Ryu has a Raging Demon, and Violent Ken has a command dash. He also noted that the execution barrier has been lowered compared to Super Turbo, and that the old character codes do not work from Super Turbo, which may denote that old characters–versions of the cast that were from Super Street Fighter II instead of Super Turbo, changing some characteristics of the characters–are absent from the game altogether.
