'Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers': First-Person Mode Reportedly Leaked By Box Art
Fans have been speculating ever since the first reveal trailer for "Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers" came out. One scene during the video caught the attention of many players, where it was a first-person view of what looks like Ryu executing his fireball attack. Fans were initially wondering if it was related to the new Nintendo Switch game or maybe something else entirely.
Reports have pointed to a leaked image of the game's box art, where the rear cover showcases the new mode as a Switch-exclusive feature. The new mode is apparently called "Unleash! Ha-Do-Ken" based on the translation of the rear cover details. Shoryuken speculates that it might be kind of mini-game where players fight against Shadaloo henchmen and soldiers. Other sources guess it might work like a rail-shooter kind of game.
A closer look at the rear cover art of the "Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers" also details that the first-person view mode might be motion-controlled. The translated text apparently mentions the use of the Nintendo Switch's Joy-Con controllers. VG24/7 also notes that the screenshot on the box art shows multiple enemies and a timer, which seems to support the speculations that it might be a special mini-game mode instead of a special viewing angle for the fighting game.
Other small details found on the box art points to a logo for Capcom's MT Framework engine, which might have been used to develop the special mode. The game will also reportedly feature an image gallery, where players can supposedly check out over 250 pieces of "Street Fighter" artwork. In a report from IGN, the company confirmed that the team working on the game is a mix of older generation and newer generation people.
The first-person view mode feature in "Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers" is also accompanied by two new characters, namely Evil Ryu and Violent Ken. The game is a Nintendo Switch exclusive and is expected to launch sometime in 2017.
