Capcom brings two more SNES games to the Virtual Console

By Spencer . March 28, 2007 . 1:10pm

Let’s see Capcom releases Street Fighter II for the Virtual Console what else could they bring? Maybe… Street Fighter II: Turbo? Everyone knew it was coming and now it’s confirmed with an ESRB rating. Final Fight also appeared on the updated ESRB list, which was an excellent side scrolling beat em up. Too bad the Super Nintendo version axed Guy. Capcom later corrected their mistake by releasing Final Fight Guy at Blockbuster, which is one of the rarer SNES carts. While Super Street Fighter II is inevitable, I hope Capcom chooses to release Final Fight Guy even if that means I’m going to be buying Final Fight twice.

    If Capcom knows better, they should be wise enough to realize Guy must absolutely be included in Final Fight. No point in making the same mistake twice and not correcting it, releasing this download as an exact duplicate of the SNES port is only asking for an uproar from many fans, not to mention cut into their profits. Final Fight Guy may have included him, but at the same time, Cody was cut from the selectable characters.

    Mighty Final Fight would be a much better investment, at least in that game you had the option of playing as any of the 3 characters. Let’s not forget about Final Fight 2 and 3 either, I’d much rather see its successors show up than a shoddy port of the original.

    As far as Street Fighter II is concerned, I think I’ll just stick with the Saturn and Dreamcast ports, personally. The SNES releases were good for their time, but really can’t hold up to these later versions.

    Hey Spencer, you may want to pass on the SNES versions of the original Final Fight. They both exclude the two player mode that makes the game so much fun. You’re better off with the Capcom Classics Collection version.

    SF2 Turbo on the SNES is my favourite console version. It’s only bettered by the arcade release.
