Nintendo Switch Just Changed the 'Street Fighter' Hadouken Forever

Capcom's classic fighting game will never be the same again


It might be worth buying a Nintendo Switch purely for a special feature in Ultra Street Fighter 2: The Final Challengers, the ability to deliver a first-person Hadouken. 

Nintendo Everything grabbed a photo of some Japanese packaging that listed the special mode as “Unleash! HaDOken” which is, apparently, kind of a pun in Japanese. You can grab just a glimpse of the new, first-person punch perspective in the game's Nintendo Switch announcement trailer.

The Hadouken is a special ability for some of the Street Fighter gang including Ryu, and is kind of an energy punch. It's so iconic that there's even a UK band called Hadouken!, but it's sadly on hiatus.
