Street Fighter II: Champion Edition, released as Street Fighter II Dash (stylized as Street Fighter II with a prime symbol)in Japan, is a fighting game released by Capcom in 1992. It was launched for arcades and converted to several video game consoles. It is the first of several updated versions of Street Fighter II, and part of the Street Fighter series.
This version was originally intended to be a standalone port of Champion Edition, similar to the PC Engine version. The Mega Drive/Genesis version was announced in March 1993, and was originally intended for release around July 1993. However, the game’s release was later delayed to September 1993. Following the announcement of Street Fighter II Turbo for the SNES, Sega had ordered its version to be delayed so that Capcom could add all of the extra content from the Turbo version as well, resulting in the title change. The main changes are the addition of the four grand masters (the final four computer-controlled opponents in the single-player mode) as playable characters and mirror matches. The fighting techniques of the eight main characters from the original game were further balanced for competitive play. Gameplay is consistent with the Street Fighter II sub-series, with several changes from the original World Warrior edition. In addition to the eight main characters, the four Shadaloo Bosses (Balrog (Boxer), Vega (Claw), Sagat, and M. Bison (Dictator)), are now playable characters. The Shadaloo Bosses were toned down considerably from the previous iterations, but remain relatively strong compared to the standard eight fighters. The returning eight main characters’ techniques and priorities were further balanced for competition between different characters. Ryu’s and Ken’s common fighting techniques were further differentiated. In World Warrior, both players are not allowed to choose the same character. This restriction has been eliminated in Champion Edition, allowing for “mirror matches”. Minor graphical changes include color improvements, particularly for background stages. The portraits for all the characters and endings of some of the returning characters were redrawn. There is new music for the end credits sequence.
Street Fighter II: Special Champion Edition was released as a plug and play system in 2005 as part of the “Play TV Legends” series by Radica. It also includes the Genesis version of Ghouls ‘n Ghosts.
