Street Fighter 2010: The Final Fight and Nobunaga’s Ambition are being released for the Wii U Virtual Console in September, Nintendo of America have announced.

 

Street Fighter 2010: The Final Fight will be available on September 1st. The original Japanese version of this game actually had nothing to do with Street Fighter and is a side-scrolling sci-fi platformer released for the NES in 1990 by Capcom.

 

In the U.S., however, the main character’s name was changed to Ken, to imply it was related to the Street Fighter series.

 

Meanwhile, Nobunaga’s Ambition will follow onto Virtual Console on September 4th.

    I had no idea this existed, looks pretty interesting, but changing the main character’s name to Ken to imply it was related to SF? Been playing dirty for a while now eh Capcom?

    Jokes, I still buy their stuff :P

      Watch the Angry Video Game Nerd’s episode about this game.

      Ah, I see that SaiyanJedi already provided a link. Have a look!

        Just watched it, think I’m going to pass on this one, that last part is insane xD

          what? you mean you don’t want to fight Grimace at the end? :(

          Just remember, the Wii U has the “restore point” system so you can technically get to a great point and save. ;)

    Street Fighter 2010? I only ever knew of this game due to the Angry Video Game Nerds review on it.

    It’s combat and music always appealed to me – especially that difficult last battle! I definitely will be picking this up!

    Devs should be a bit more daring with their dates, just in case stuff like that happens. It’s already 2014 and I don’t see any bright lasers outside.

    While they didn’t shoehorn Ken’s name into the Japanese version like they did the US, it was still CALLED 2010: Street Fighter.

    Can we please get some real games on the Wii U virtual console? Please? I mean, in Japan they’ve got Secret of Mana and Chrono Trigger and everything…

  • WyattEpp

    Weird controls, but it’s a pretty neat game. And it’s got ballin’ music, too!

    I rented Street Fighter 2010 when I was a kid. It was terrible and I never want to play it again.
