DevelopmentStreet Fighter II Turbo was a response to unauthorized arcade hacks, especially the Rainbow Edition, which was a tweaked Street Fighter II version with changes such as increased game speed and mid-air moves. Capcom saw this as a big threat, so they tried to stop the production but it was wide spread, so they decided to take the game, fix it up, and finally released it, so that people would stop buying from the pirates, with the final project named Street Fighter II Turbo.
SalesAccording to publisher Capcom, Street Fighter II Turbo has sold 4.1 million copies worldwide since its initial release (as of June 30, 2016).
