IGN - Capcom explains why they chose Switch for Ultra Street Fighter II

A portion of an IGN interview with Capcom's Yoshinori Ono...

"Let's do a [Street Fighter II] renewal because that will allow people who've played the game for the last 25 years to really go back to their roots and enjoy a game they grew up playing in commemoration of the 30th anniversary."

Ono went on further to say that playing with the Switch and a Joy-Con prototype made him nostalgic for the Super Famicom era.

Street Fighter II Charity Album Features 20 Hip-Hop Artists

Richmond, VA - June 20, 2017 - Twenty producers, DJs, and emcees from Richmond, Virginia are excited to present a collaborative hip-hop tribute charity album featuring the iconic melodies from Street Fighter II. Street Fighter: The RVA Warrior breathes new life into each of the world warriors' themes, and best of all, proceeds will be donated to the Richmond-based Building a Better RPS charitable organization to benefit public schools in the area. Street Fighter: The RVA Warrior is available today wherever digital music is sold.

Collaborators including radio host Black Liquid, members of Gritty City Records, DJs Phil Dice, 8-Bit Mullet, and Dope Solo/Sultans, a co-founder of the Party Liberation Front, and others joined the project to showcase Richmond's musical talent, support a much-needed cause, promote inclusion and unity among local groups, and pay homage to one of the greatest videogames of all time by remixing its thrilling original soundtrack.

A release show and fundraising event will be held at Garden Grove Brewery on Thursday, June 22nd, at 8:00pm. The show, which will also be streamed live on Twitch, will include a Street Fighter II tournament, costume contest, and live art by Amy Black, a prominent tattoo artist. Garden Grove will be serving a Street Fighter-themed beer, Yoga Fire: a habanero-infused India Pale Ale. Funds from donations, a raffle, and profits from CD and digital sales will go towards projects aimed at improving Richmond's public school system.

"I was excited to receive so much interest once I shared the concept with the collaborators," comments project organizer Alan "8-Bit Mullet" Brymer. "It's been a great way to connect with other artists, support a good cause, and have fun re-living
a game that each of us grew up loving despite our different backgrounds."

Capcom's Yoshinori Ono answers truly random questions about Street Fighter

A portion of a Game Informer interview with Yoshinori Ono...

GI: How did Ken get Violent?

YO: So Ken’s relationship with his wife wasn’t going so well, and he got pretty pissed off and ended up turning violent as a character.

GI: Do you know who wins every Street Fighter tournament? Is there a canon order of who wins?

YO: So, in Street Fighter II there are eight different characters, each of which have their own story at the end of the game. So at the end of the day, when you look at each of those specific stories, each character probably thinks “Oh, I’m the champion!” in each of their minds. But when they wake up the next morning they realize none of them really are champion, but they think they should be, so they keep fighting.

GI: Do you think Ryu’s fireball is magic? Is he a wizard?

YO: No, I do not believe it’s magic. In Ultra Street Fighter II there’s a mode called Way of the Hado, which to me is like inspiration for people to learn to throw projectiles. So during the 50th anniversary, tell everyone that if you practice you’ll be able to shoot projectiles.

Fan-Art: Custom Street Fighter II dock for Switch

That's an amazing bit of work right there. Someone was paying attention during shop class! The only down side is that the buttons don't actually work!
