In the original reveal of Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers for Nintendo Switch, the footage snuck in a brief moment of first-person gameplay. It was initially unclear if that snippet was directly related to USFII, or was instead a hint of something else down the road in Street Fighter’s 30th anniversary year. Based on this leaked image of USFII’s package art, it appears that it was indeed a peek at a Switch-exclusive first-person mode, called “Unleash! Ha-Do-Ken.” (波Do拳 instead of the iconic move’s name 波動拳, preceded by “release” or “fire.”)

As little as we have to go on here, it suggests the mode is (as was speculated) a mini-game of sorts in which we battle Shadaloo soldiers, set apart from the main USFII title–possibly more like a rail-shooter than a fighting game? Also notable as indicated–presuming this box art is genuine–are the inclusion of a Street Fighter art gallery, and that the title is running on MT Framework in some capacity.

While it may not prove to be a significant competitive title, it looks like USFII will still offer some interesting content to Street Fighter fans.
