Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers gets a permanent price drop in Japan

Capcom has permanently reduced the price of Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers in Japan. The eShop version has been lowered from ¥4,990 to just ¥2,990. No word on the retail release getting similar treatment, or a permanent price drop in NA/EU at this time.

Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate, Ultra Street Fighter II - 'Best Price' cover art

Just last week, Capcom announced that both Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate and Ultra Street Fighter II were getting 'Best Price' re-releases in Japan. Today we get a look at the covers for these re-releases. They're not exactly the nicest looking covers, but I understand that Capcom wants to make sure customers can see the 'Best Price' branding clearly, as they'll be more inclined to check things out for the budget prices.

Capcom - Monster Hunter XX Switch "performed strongly", Ultra Street Fighter II a "smash hit"

Capcom has been extremely weird when it comes to their Switch support, as well as how they talk about the system. Perhaps they'll be a bit more forthcoming soon, as the two titles they did put out on Switch have done well with them. According to their latest financial report, Monster Hunter XX Switch "performed strongly", while Ultra Street Fighter II The Final Challengers was called a "smash hit." Certainly seems like reason enough to support the platform better!

Well Capcom, you've got to put up or shut up now! We talked about Ultra Street Fighter II's sales earlier today, but now we have a number to go with that.
