Mega Drive Super Street Fighter 2 hits Virtual Console

With online play.

The Mega Drive version of Super Street Fighter 2: The New Challengers will launch on the Nintendo Wii Virtual Console with online play, Capcom has announced.

It launches on the Virtual Console in Japan, the US and Europe, the Japanese company revealed on Capcom Unity.

No date is set, but Capcom said the cult fighting game is "coming soon".

The addition of online play to SSF2 is rare for a Virtual Console game, but Capcom suggested more games like it may see release.

"Hope to see more instances of this in the future - gives these old 16-bit classics another chance to shine!" Capcom said.
