Is There Going To Be A First-Person Street Fighter Game?
Street Fighter has been one of the pioneers for the fighting game genre, and its gameplay mechanic is so tried and true that it's been used as the basis for modern fighting games like Tekken and Marvel vs. Capcom. News has it that a teaser released for Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers has teased a first-person (or possibly Virtual Reality) version of the game.
Speculation comes from Game Tyrant who noticed the clue in the Nintendo Switch trailer for The Final Challengers. The very brief clip can be seen in the 2:06 minute mark in the trailer, and it shows Ryu throwing a hadouken at M. Bison in the first-person perspective.
A first-person perspective would come out as incredibly odd for Street Fighter and the genre that it's most famous for, but PVP Live has pointed out that this concept was already seen in the Nintendo 3DS version of Street Fighter IV. Some guess that having first-person in the Nintendo Switch version of the game could be a way to get more players interested in the console.
Then again, there's also the possibility that this is a teaser for a VR version of Street Fighter. Though a fighting game like Street Fighter could be tricky to translate into the FPS format, a VR version would seem to be a more fluid adaptation. Players can be able to swing punches at an opponent and fire projectiles with buttons. Then again, this is all just speculation as of the moment, and fans will just have to wait for Capcom to make any further announcements.
For anyone thinking about purchasing Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers for the Nintendo Switch, two new playable characters will also be coming to the game - namely Evil Ryu and Violent Ken. Evil Ryu is a bloodthirsty version of Ryu that succumbed to the Satsui no Hado, and Violent Ken is a bizzaro version of Ken who was brainwashed by M. Bison with his Psycho Power.
No official release date has been announced for this first-person Street Fighter game, but hopefully more news comes out near the release of the Nintendo Switch on March 3.
