Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers

Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers is releasing next week, but for those of you who really cannot wait for it, here’s some more gameplay footage from Nintendo and Capcom!

Here’s the direct-feed footage:

And here’s some recordings from the latest episode of Capcom TV:

Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers (Switch) will be released on May 26th worldwide.

Hollow Knight

Today, Team Cherry posted the latest devblog post for Hollow Knight. In this one, they have some pretty good news for Nintendo Switch owners: they’ve brought Shark Jump Studios (a coding/development team located in Adelaide) on board, in order to speed up porting. Their job will consist in testing, polishing, and making sure the game is ready for its console debut.

The thing is, Team Cherry is pretty small (only two people), so porting Hollow Knight to the Nintendo Switch is quite the task for them… especially since they’re also working on free additional content (not to mention all the Kickstarter rewards and content).

We don’t have a release date or even window for Hollow Knight, but with Shark Jump Studios on board, it should be much sooner than initially anticipated!
