Street Fighter coming to North America tomorrow

According to Nintendo’s official website, Street Fighter Alpha 2 will release on Wii U Virtual Console on May 22nd, which happens to be tomorrow. The listing is on the North American site only, meaning Europe will have to wait a bit longer. When the game released on the Wii Virtual Console, North America got the game over a month before Europe, so hopefully release in other territories

The game features 2 player simultaneous play and if you have played or seen a Street Fighter game in the past then you will have a good idea how this one will play. It was originally an arcade game before releasing on the SNES in 1996.
