Sega Genesis version of Street Fighter 2 gets online mode for the Wii’s Virtual Console

This is quite a pleasant surprise: The Sega Genesis version of Street Fighter 2 will be re-released on the Virtual Console with added online multiplayer! This has been confirmed for the Japanese version, which according to Capcom will come to the West soon! Here’s the full comment:

Here’s a nice surprise – the Sega Genesis / Mega Drive version of Super Street Fighter II: The New Challengers is coming to the Japanese Virtual Console with online play added. On the surface, that’s not entirely great news, as most of us are not in Japan. However, I can confirm that this is indeed coming soon for US / EU as well, though there’s no set date.

  • Why SF2 SCE and not SSFII, and why genesis?

  • I was actually thinking the same thing. Seems like an odd move by Capcom.

    I read the article and the quote, it says the release is going to be Super Street Fighter 2: The New Challengers.
