The Switch-exclusive Ultra Street Fighter II: The New Challengers, which brings the seminal fighting game to Nintendo's latest console, now has a release date.

The game will be hitting on May 26 and will retail for $39.99. In addition to bringing everything from Super Street Fighter II Turbo over with an HD finish (a Remix, if you will), Ultra adds two new characters, a first-person minigame called "Way of the Hado" which has you blasting Shadoloo henchmen with Hadoukens, a two-versus-one mode, and color editing for characters.  You can watch the game's debut trailer for Ultra Street Fighter II below.

Our Take
For $40? I dunno. The first-person mode doesn't do much for me, and the two new characters don't justify the price for me. I like the idea of having on-the-go Street Fighter to play with a friend, but I'm not sure the joy-cons are a worthy controller to fight with.
