Japan Gets Super Street Fighter II with Online Play on VC
Posted by James Newton
While the Wii Virtual Console continues to decompose in the West, Japan's still getting the goods, with a few enhancements to boot.
The latest game to hit the service is the Mega Drive version of Super Street Fighter II: The New Challengers, brought up to date with online play via Nintendo WiFi Connection. By comparison, in the West we have Super Street Fighter II: The New Challengers on Super NES with, of course, no online play.
This isn't the first time we've seen online play added to a classic game though: SEGA added multiplayer to Puyo Puyo earlier this year to celebrate the franchise's 20th anniversary, of course. We still haven't seen that release in Europe or North America, and it's unlikely we'll ever get to pummel T. Hawks online either.
