Ultra Street Fighter II Way Of The Hado Mode Details & Screens

When Capcom first showed off Ultra Street Fighter II last month on the Nintendo Treehouse Live segment, the trailer hinted at a first-person mode. That has now been confirmed with the new Way of the Hado mode (Hadouken!).



This new mode is in addition to the normal 2D fighting action that fans are expecting. In it you’ll see Ryu’s hands as players hold a Joy-Con in each hand. They can then perform hadoukens by utilizing the Joy-Con controllers’ motion. Players simply hold them sideways and push forward with both hands, simulating the movement from the game series. Other moves will be at your disposal as well. Read on for details:


Hey World Warriors!

We are just about two weeks away from the release of Nintendo Switch and we’re excited to reveal the brand-new “Way of the Hado” mode coming to Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers.

By holding the left and right Joy-Con in each hand respectively and utilizing the motion controls, you’ll be able to perform Ryu’s iconic special moves. Full descriptions and demonstrations are available in Training Mode, so you can practice your attacking and defending there. Once you’re ready to jump in, you can challenge yourself to obtain a high score in Beginner or Hard difficulty. And if you want a real test of endurance, try out endless mode where Shadaloo soldiers will continue to appear until you have been KO’d.

Hadoukens are performed by turning the Joy-Con controllers sideways and pushing forward with both hands. This is a great way to stop enemy projectiles and deal damage from a distance.

Shoryukens deal great damage to a single target and is your go-to special move when an enemy is up close. To perform a Shoryuken, keep one arm still while you punch the other into the air in an upward arc.

Tatsumaki Senpuu Kyaku’s allow you to hit multiple opponents up close, making it effective when several enemies try to swarm you. You perform it by holding both Joy-Con controllers upright in front of you and rotating your hips side to side.

The best way to deal massive damage to enemies close up and far away is by doing Ryu’s Shinku Hadouken. You’ll need to build up your Super Meter while playing, and once it’s full, hold down the SL and SR buttons while doing the same motion for a normal Hadouken.

After each stage in “Way of the Hado” mode, you’ll earn valuable experience points that you can invest in various stats such as Attack, Health, Speed, and Defense. Improving your stats are key to defeating soldiers quickly and obtaining a higher score. Once you’re ready for the ultimate test, fight M. Bison himself!
