- A trip down memory lane, but graphics and gameplay seem very poor compared to the PS4 version I played on a friend's console 🙁

STREET FIGHTER II: THE FINAL CHALLENGERS
The game that rocked the fighting genre in the '90s is back with a host of new features on Nintendo Switch!
ULTRA STREET FIGHTER II: The Final Challengers features a stellar line-up of characters, including all the original fighters and bosses, the characters added in Super Street Fighter II, plus new additions Evil Ryu and Violent Ken! Choose between classic pixel-art graphics for a retro nostalgia trip, or enjoy a refined new modern look! Once players have selected their preferred fighter, they can enjoy a number of modes: Arcade Mode, Buddy Battle, Versus Mode, Online Mode, Training Mode, and a unique first-person mode called “Way of the Hado” where players attempt to defeat the Shadaloo army using signature Hadouken and Shoryuken special moves!
Use the Joy-Con to challenge a second player anytime, anywhere. Pull off flashy super combos and show your opponent who's the strongest around! The option to switch between Lite and Pro controls lets players perform special moves or super combos by either touching the touch screen or pressing a single button, whereas traditional Pro controls offer all the classic button inputs engrained into players’ muscle memory. With a host of new control options, multiple game modes, online play and the inclusion of Lite controls for newcomers, friends will be able to experience Street Fighter in a whole new way.
When the Nintendo Switch console is docked and by simply removing both Joy-Con controllers from the console, friends can fight for glory from the comfort of their living room, or put their differences aside and team up against the CPU in Buddy Battle. Create new two-character combos and attack the CPU on both sides! Battle it out with a friend in local multiplayer or take the fight online in Ranked and Casual matches.
Regardless of their experience level, all players can fight in style by using the Colour Editor to customise the colour scheme of their favourite character, giving them their ideal look. Enter the style settings and select between new high-definition visuals for a modern look, or select classic graphics and witness Street Fighter II just as it was in the arcades.
Take a break from brawling and visit the gallery, which includes over 1,400 highly detailed illustrations from throughout Street Fighter's 30-year history, taken from the out-of-print Street Fighter Artworks: Supremacy book.
