Street Fighter II Turbo: Hyper Fighting is a competitive fighting game released for the arcade by Capcom in 1992. It is the third game in the Street Fighter II sub-series of Street Fighter games following Street Fighter II: Champion Edition. Released less than a year after the previous installment, Hyper Fighting introduced a faster playing speed and new special moves for certain characters, as well as further refinement to the character balance.
Hyper Fighting is the final arcade game in the Street Fighter II series to use the original CP System hardware. It was distributed as an upgrade kit designed to be installed into Champion Edition printed circuit boards. The next game in the series, Super Street Fighter II, uses the CP System’s successor, the CP System II.
A port was released for the Super Famicom on July 11, 1993 in Japan, and for the Super NES in August 1993 in North America and October 1993 in the PAL region. The port was developed using the SNES port of the original Street Fighter II as its base, but with a larger cartridge size of 20 Megabits. Despite being titled Turbo, this port also contains the Champion Edition version of the game in the form of a “Normal” mode. The game’s playing speed is adjustable in Turbo mode by up to four settings by default, with a cheat code that allows up to six faster settings. Other cheat codes allow players to enable and disable special moves in Versus mode, as well as play through the single-player mode with all of the special moves disabled.
The pitch change in the characters’ voices when they perform a variation of their special moves based on the strength level of the attack was removed, but the voice clips of the announcer saying the names of each country were restored, along with the barrel-breaking bonus stage that was removed in the first SNES port. The graphics of each character’s ending were changed to make them more accurate to the arcade version. Sound effects featuring people or animals shouting after a round ended were added as well, an aesthetic element that was not present in the arcade version of Hyper Fighting, but rather was added in Super Street Fighter II.
