Street Fighter II differences

Street Fighter II was such an extraordinary success that Capcom released five variations of it from 1991 to 1994. Gamers eagerly flocked to the arcades and swarmed video game stores looking for the latest update.

Each new version enhanced the series by adding extra playable characters, more special moves, or faster speed. But besides new costume colors and intro sequences, Capcom also tweaked a few subtle graphic details that most players never noticed.
