Here Are All The Modes Included In Ultra Street Fighter II

by Robert Workman


In just a few weeks’ time, we’ll be fighting like it’s 1991 all over again with Ultra Street Fighter II on the Nintendo Switch. But what modes will players be able to take advantage of in the game?

Thanks to Nintendo UK, we’ve got a breakdown of the many modes that will be included in the forthcoming port, and they’re certain to keep single and friendly fighters alike quite busy.

The full listing, straight from the web page, is below:


In this single-player mode, travel around the globe and defeat legendary characters in succession to emerge victorious. It’s the mode that made Street Fighter II a worldwide phenomenon.


Grab a friend and go head-to-head in classic Street Fighter action. Choose your favorite character, show off your skills and vie for supremacy (and the bragging rights!).

Buddy Battle

Put your differences aside and team up against the CPU for co-operative clashes in the all-new Buddy Battle mode. Come together and throw down new two-player combos as you take on the enemy from both sides.


Struggling to find a sparring partner? Hop online to fight against friends and foes the world over in Ranked or Casual matches. Show your prowess with online leaderboards that track both your overall Player Points and character-specific Battle Points.

Way of the Hado

Use the motion-sensing capabilities of the Joy-Con to fight against the Shadaloo army in an all-new first-person action mode. Feel what it’s like to be Ryu as you pull off signature moves like Hadokens and Shoryukens.


Sharpen your skills or simply refresh your memory in the Training mode. Practice special combos to your heart’s content, ingrain those button sequences into your muscle memory and reach your peak fighting power.

Fight Requests

Forge new rivalries with Fight Requests! If you enable Fight Requests in the menu, nearby and online* players can challenge you to battle when you’re playing in Arcade mode – should you accept, they’ll jump seamlessly into your game, just like they joined you at the arcade cabinet!

Replay Mode

Relive your greatest (and most gruelling) moments by saving your replays and watching them back at your leisure. You can skip through rounds during playback, too, so you can find that super combo finisher more easily!

While Way of the Hado sounds a bit gimmicky to us, the rest of the modes should easily shine with Street Fighter fans. We’ll see you online!

Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers arrives on May 26th for Nintendo Switch.
