There was a time where every new game released for the Super Famicom system had to be prefixed with "Super". Then came a time when the suffix "turbo" appeared. So what extras did Capcom throw in this exclusive version released a year after Street Fighter II ? All fighters are now playable, the original eight as well as the four boss characters. Balrog, Vega, Sagat and M.Bison can now be controlled by the player with their unique talents and special moves. And that's not all, new special moves are now available - to only name a few, Chun Li, like Ryu and Ken, can now throw her own fireballs and Dhalsim can use a neat teleportation move. Because of this, the characters are much more balanced and Capcom fixed the "unfairness" between fighters clearly visible in Street Fighter II. Interestingly, the speed of the game can also be changed before each match giving each fight an incredible pace. The story mode offers two options to the players - they can either play the game in Champion Mode with all the original features and speed (no extra special moves), or in Turbo Mode with all the special moves and adjustable speed. Finally, Capcom added three bonus stages where our favorite fighters have to annihilate a car, destroy a stack of bricks or hit wooden barrels.

Four Playable Bosses Street Fighter II' Turbo originally came out in the Japanese arcades in 1993 (the game was renamed Street Fighter II': Hyper Fighting in the rest of the world). The Super Famicom version tested here, however, is a mix of Street Fighter II' (aka Street Fighter II': Champion Edition) and Street Fighter II' Turbo (aka Street Fighter II': Hyper Fighting). This may sound confusing at first (and it is), but this basically means that the game includes the four playable bosses from Champion Edition and the new moves and faster gameplay from Turbo, plus a bunch of new features shared by both games. Notice also that the bosses names differ from the American and original Japanese version (see Street Fighter II for more information).

Street Fighter II Turbo is definitively the ultimate home conversion of Street Fighter II. Everything in this game screams perfection. All the major complaints players had about the original Street Fighter II game were addressed. No more unfairness between fighters (Ryu and Ken used to be much more powerful than any other playable characters). Definitively the pinnacle of the Street Fighter II series for the Super Famicom system. Few fighting games of the 2D era ever came close to Street Fighter II and this conversion deserves all your attention if you are a fan of the series. A must have.
