The original Street Fighter IV is back!

Earlier this week, Xbox spokesperson, Larry Hryb, also known as Major Nelson, announced that the Xbox 360 version of Street Fighter IV is now playable on Xbox One via backwards compatibility. Players can access the game by either inserting the Xbox 360 disc or by utilizing the “Ready to Install” section found in the “My games and apps” menu if purchased digitally.

While it is great to see Street Fighter back on the Xbox platform, it is unfortunate that the title available is not Ultra Street Fighter IV, the definitive edition of the game. Perhaps Microsoft and Capcom are considering bringing Ultra Street Fighter IV through backwards compatibility or a remaster after seeing the reaction to the addition of the original game.

Street Fighter IV originally released on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on February 17, 2009 in North America with newcomer characters Abel, C. Viper, Rufus, El Fuerte, Seth, and Gouken.
