The lights are on
This week, the Wii U's virtual console gets Street Fighter II, Street Fighter II Turbo, and Super Street Fighter II. These are the SNES versions of the games, which claimed the time and money from thousands of gamers in the early '90s.
The news comes from Capcom's Brett Elston via Capcom-Unity. All three games have Miiverse support added, and cost $8 each. Fortunately, if you buy one, you are able to buy the other two at half price. In other words, you can pick up all three for about $16.
What do you think? Are you going to check out one or more of these classics?
Anyone who owned a Super Nintendo has fond memories of Street Fighter II. Picking up at least one of these three games is sure to deliver plenty of nostalgia, but all three might be overkill. Unless you're a hardcore fighting fan and obsess over the mechanical differences between the versions, you're probably fine with only getting your favorite. Because of that, these three titles might have been better suited a single collection rather than individual sales.

The one you have pictured, one of my favorite games growing up! Received it for making it out of the hospital alive after surgery.
Why would anybody want to buy three of these games for $16.00? These games are so old and have been released so many times that Capcom is just trying to make a couple of easy bucks. Do yourself a favor and download these games of your Super Nintendo emulator and save yourself $16.00.
Not a bad deal. I hope they keep adding more games to the Wii U's virtual console to start bolstering its software library.
im getting 'em all
They can't spam us to death with Street Fighter 4 anymore so they are going old school with it.Just go away Cashcom just go away.

Welcome to Capcom Fighting Games, Juba :D
Give me the D&D game you owe me Capcom and then I will consider getting this. No D&D no sale. The only reason I would get this is because for sure I would have a crapload of friends who would be willing to throw it down on this with a few beers to go with it.
If you purchased all these on the wii already it would only be 4.50 for all.
