Bank switching

The Mega Drive / Genesis version of the game uses a 40 Megabit cartridge (5 Mb.). In order to surpass the usual 32 Megabit (4 Mb.) limit of the system it uses bank switching technology, never accessing whole the data in the cartridge at the same time. Older Mega Drive / Genesis emulators won't play this game.

References to the game

The game is shown briefly on the Channel 4 comedy, Father Ted. The game is shown being played by Father Dougal McGuire and Father Damian, although Dougal is clearly using an Atari joystick controller, as Father Ted enters the room. The clip can be found here.


According to publisher Capcom, Super Street Fighter II has sold 2 million copies worldwide since its initial release (as of June 30, 2016).

SNES version

In the SNES version, blood was removed during the fights and from the fighter's portraits after fights. Additionally some pre-match sayings (Ryu, Balrog and Guile) and ending sequences (Chun-Li, Balrog, Ryu, Vega and Zangief) were changed. A detailed list of changes can be found on schnitberichte.com (German).
