Super Street Fighter II headed to Wii Virtual Console, online play included

Street Fighter II and its many iterations have already been released multiple times over on just about any platform you can think of, but not this one on this platform.

Capcom Unity announced over the weekend that the Genesis version of Super Street Fighter II: The New Challengers is headed to the Wii’s Virtual Console in North America and Europe at some point in the (near?) future.

Interestingly, it won’t just be the genesis version of Super Street Fighter II. Capcom announced that online play is being added as well, so you’ll be able to trade Hadoukens, Shoryukens, Yoga Flames and more with your Wii pals over the internet.

Capcom didn’t say when we can expect the upgraded port to be released on the Virtual Console, just that it would be releasing in Japan first – and even that date isn’t known.

Lest you get confused from the 4,287 iterations (roughly) of Street Fighter II, this isn’t the more popular iteration, Super Street Fighter II Turbo. Still, it’s hard to complain with online play for a still solid classic fighter.
