Choose from twelve street fighters from around the world, skilled in a variety of martial arts -- for instance, a character named E.Honda is a sumo wrestler from Japan, while Ken is a master of Tae Kwon Do from the United States. Journey to different countries to defeat other fighters, eventually leading up to a battle with evil man M.Bison. Besides the standard punches and kicks, each character can also execute special moves, such as energy projectiles or lightning-fast kicks, for more damage or to create a chain of hit combos.

This installment in the Street Fighter series is essentially an upgrade to the Champion Edition game with some improvements and changes, such as new or upgraded moves, costume colors and increased game speed.

Street Fighter II Turbo: Hyper Fighting appears in the book 1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die by General Editor Tony Mott.


Street 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.


According to publisher Capcom, Street Fighter II Turbo has sold 4.1 million copies worldwide since its initial release (as of June 30, 2016).
