You know I didn't even think of a dpad joycon. Make it happen for less than $50 and they sold me.

The left dpad joycon is a must for me if playing fighters on the go is going to ever be enticing on this thing.

I've read what people said and heard it wouldn't look good. Is there no way the VR headset could have something in it to boost power to the Switch?

the power is not just in the tech, but in the screen being 720p. Maybe there will be a "Switch Pro" in a few years with a better screen more suited to VR, but it just doesn't seem to be in Nintendo's wheelhouse. VR is still incredibly niche, based on the Switch presentation, Nintendo is after the mass market/casuals.

It's probably something years down the road then.

Is this a launch title?

No but it should be close

Ono via IGN said:
“We haven’t announced the specific date but, as you have seen, the presentation from Japan mentioned that the Switch would come out March 3rd,” he said. “We would like to try to release it in close proximity of that date.”

Also on whether it's exclusive:
"If this title sells extremely well we’ll consider it," Ono said. "We put a lot of thought into how this can be fully enjoyed on the Nintendo Switch, so for the time being it’s only going to be on Switch."

But keep in mind if it is digital only and you want physical, Switch is region free.

Like, I know this is a low-budget effort, but thematically V.K. should have new winposes at least.

I am still irritated the new challengers are another Ryu and Ken. If they were truly new characters for SF2 this would be a must buy for me.
Even if it was ...I don't know, Dan and Sakura or so.
Just somebody new to that game.

This must have been posted already, but nice to hear a cover of the SF2 movie theme song by May'n (who already sang SF V's Destiny)

Yeah, Capcom could have added someone new rather than those two...

I wonder if it would be possible to mod a joycon to have the left one with a D-pad instead of the buttons...

Like, by cutting the plastic or making a custom one with a 3D printer and transplant the inside of the OG one in it.

Surely someone will try it after launch...we have people destroying their console on the ground in front of launch waiting lines to get youtube views after all. :lol

I don't know why, but I feel like this release would be perfect with Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo HD Remix packed in along side it since it never hit an Nintendo console and majority of the characters from this is in that game too.
