The Switch is about to become a more exciting place this weekend as Nintendo has added a number of new games to the Nintendo eShop as part of this week’s Nintendo Download…
First up is Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers, a brand new re-release of 1991’s most popular fighting game. Featuring enhanced graphics courtesy of Udon Entertainment, Capcom will also add two characters (Evil Ryu and Violent Ken) to the game, as well as a first-person “Way of the Hado” minigame, and other new features. Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers will be available to download for the Switch beginning tomorrow, May 26.
But if you’re looking to pick something up today, Disgaea 5 Complete is available to download through the Nintendo eShop now.
