Three Versions of Street Fighter II Coming to Wii U Virtual Console

This week, the Wii U Virtual Console will see the release of three Street Fighter II games, Capcom has announced. The games in question are Street Fighter II: The World Warrior, Street Fighter II: Turbo/Hyper Fighting and Street Fighter II: The New Challenges. Each of the aforementioned fighting games will be available for $7.99, €7.99 or £5.49, depending on where you live.

The price seems a little steep, but if you buy all three games, you get a discount. Still, note that the discount is only available in North America and Europe. In North America, buy any of the Street Fighter II games and get the other two 50% off. In Europe, buy two games and get the third one for free.
