Street Fighter 2’s first-person mode looks real messy on Nintendo Switch

Capcom has shown off a first-person mode for Ultra Street Fighter 2: The Final Challengers that has you hurling imaginary hadoukens.

Exclusive to the version currently in development for Nintendo Switch, the minigame has the player using the Joy-cons to imitate the actions of famous fighters.

Capcom showcased the new mode in a recent livestream, having a member of the team hurl out an assortment of Hadoukens and Dragon Punches.

In the mode, you play as Ryu from a first-person perspective as he goes up against dozens of Shadaloo henchmen. This is where things start to get janky.

Throwing a fireball requires you to move the Joy-cons forward, while a dragon punch has you thrust one upward. Waving them side-to-side will result in a hurricane kick.

As the developer tries to perform these moves they appear to be both inaccurate and clumsy in-game, with movements triggering the incorrect actions out of sync with player movements.

Luckily, this is likely an optional bonus mode for Ultra Street Fighter 2 on Switch, and shouldn’t impact the core experience. It’s like we’re witnessing lazy shovelware on the Nintendo Wii all over again.
