Street Fighter II': Special Champion Edition, known as Street Fighter II' Plus (ストリートファイターII ダッシュプラス, pronounced Street Fighter II Dash Plus) in Japan, is a versus fighting game released by Capcom for the Sega Mega Drive in 1993.

The release is a two-in-one compilation of the arcade games Street Fighter II': Champion Edition and Street Fighter II' Turbo: Hyper Fighting. It was the first Street Fighter game to be released on a Sega system.

Story

As part of his global domination plan, M. Bison sets up a tournament to find the world's best fighters to brainwash into his criminal organization Shadaloo.

Gameplay

Street Fighter II has a long and complex lineage dating back to the 1991 release of Street Fighter II: The World Warrior, a sequel to the 1987 arcade game Street Fighter. Two updates to the game were released as Street Fighter II': Champion Edition and Street Fighter II' Turbo: Hyper Fighting in March and December 1992, respectively. Each of the updates attempted to further balance gameplay as well as offering new features such as faster gameplay and more moves.

Special Champion Edition, unique to the Mega Drive, allows players to choose between the two initial updates to the game: Champion Edition, which makes the four boss characters playable and enables mirror matches of the same character, and Hyper Fighting, which has the same enhancements but also adds ten selectable game speeds and new moves for many characters.

Characters move with Left and Right and crouch with Down. They jump with Up and flip back and forth with Up-left and Up-right. Punches are done with X (jab), Y (medium), and Z (fierce) and kicks are done with A (short), B (medium), and C (roundhouse). Light attacks are faster and hard attacks deal more damage. Special moves for each character are done by pairing specific directional combinations with an attack button.

Street Fighter II': Special Champion Edition was built to utilise the Six Button Control Pad (the first Mega Drive fighting game to support it), but it is fully compatible with the standard three-button controllers too. When playing with a three button pad, the player has to press  START  to switch between punches and kicks.

Throws and grabs are done by holding Left or Right when next to an opponent and pressing a medium or hard punch or kick button. Different characters have different throws available to them, and some characters can throw in midair. Throws cannot be blocked. Blocking is done by holding the D-Pad away from the opponent, with special moves still doing a small amount of "chip damage" if blocked. Characters can become dizzy from being attacked repeatedly; they are uncontrollable and vulnerable in this state but can recover more quickly by rapidly pressing back and forth on the D-Pad along with the attack buttons. It is also possible to escape grabs in this way.

Modes

Champion Edition and Hyper Fighting have the same game modes:

  • Game Start: The single-player mode consists of twelve matches against computer-controlled opponents, always concluding with the four Shadaloo bosses Balrog, Vega, Sagat, and M. Bison. A second player can enter at any time to challenge the first by pressing  START , with the victor continuing in the tournament. There are eight different difficulty levels for computer-controlled opponents. After every three matches, the player plays a bonus stage. Beating the game on the highest difficulty level unlocks a special ending sequence.
  • V.S. Battle: A dedicated two-player mode where players can choose a handicap and pick any stage to play. Players can toggle any special move in the two-player mode.
  • Group Battle: A two-player mode in which players fight each other with a team of up to six characters each using Match Play or Elimination rules.

Characters

Move lists assume the player is facing right. If facing left, Left and Right should be reversed. P refers to any of the punch buttons, while K refers to any of the kick buttons. For moves that require pressing all three P or K buttons, pressing any two buttons also works.

Special Champion Edition contains the eight playable characters from Street Fighter II, plus the four originally unplayable "Grand Masters."

Every character has two selectable color schemes, one chosen by pressing any attack button and a secondary color scheme chosen with  START  (and also used for mirror matches). Hyper Fighting gives every character a new primary color scheme and uses the original color schemes as the secondary colors.

History

Development

Main article: Street Fighter II': Special Champion Edition/Development.

Release

Whilst not selling as many copies as the previous Street Fighter II releases on Super NES (6.3 million and 4.1 million respectively), Special Champion Edition managed to sell 1.65 million copies, becoming Capcom's only Mega Drive title to surpass more than a million unit sales (a feat only repeated by one other Capcom title on a Sega system, Resident Evil Code: Veronica on the Dreamcast).

Special Champion Edition brought Sega's console onto a level playing field with Nintendo, and particularly made an impact in regions where the Mega Drive was the dominant system over the Super NES (specifically countries like the United Kingdom, where Special Champion Edition was a highly publicised best seller). Computer and Video Games, for example, hyped it as the world's first 24 megabit console cartridge, and said it has better graphics and faster performance than the SNES version of the original Street Fighter II[4].

The game's scratchy voice samples were a subject of criticism upon release, but rather than being attributed to hardware limitations, it has been proven that it is a result of poor programming. A fan made hack of the game testing this theory exists on the internet, showing that one can successfully replace the sound driver (leading to higher quality sample playback) without changing the ROM size significantly (i.e., it would still fit on a 3MB/24Mb ROM cartridge like the unmodified version).

Legacy

Both the Mega Drive and Super NES would see the following upgrade, Super Street Fighter II: The New Challengers (though neither console would see its subsequent update, Super Street Fighter II Turbo in the West or Super Street Fighter II X in Japan). With more cartridge space and greater experience, Super Street Fighter II fixes many of the concerns with Special Champion Edition, such as the missing announcer, though it has been criticized for having inferior sound quality.

Special Champion Edition has since been re-released as part of the Wii's Virtual Console service and as part of the Japanese and Western versions of the Mega Drive Mini.

Versions

Graphically, the arcade versions of Street Fighter II′: Champion Edition and Street Fighter II′ Turbo: Hyper Fighting are very similar (save for character palette changes and a new title screen), meaning Street Fighter II': Special Champion Edition is able to recycle graphics for both modes. However, the Mega Drive is unable to match Capcom's CPS arcade hardware, and so is forced to make noticeable cutbacks in graphical fidelity (perhaps most obviously, the lower resolution, with the Mega Drive game outputting at 256x224 at all times compared to 384x224 in the arcade original).

Many background animations are missing in the Mega Drive version, such as the water in E. Honda's stage (alongside the left red lantern) and the scrolling clouds in Blanka's. Where animations are retained, frames are often dropped, which is particularly evident with crowds. While the introduction cinematic is retained, in the West both of the unnamed fighters are white.

While Special Champion Edition delivers more content than its closest SNES counterpart, Street Fighter II Turbo: Hyper Fighting. The Nintendo version, while again sacrificing background detail over the arcade version in many of the same places, offers tiny improvements over the Mega Drive version in some stages and offers a wider colour palette, as well as clearer speech samples.

It is not a clean sweep, however, with many stages in the Super NES version missing background details or animations present in the Mega Drive port, and it omits the intro sequence being completely. Blanka's defeat portrait has also been lightly censored in the Super NES version, appearing less gruesome than on the Mega Drive.

Some of these gaps between the Mega Drive and Super NES ports would be closed with Super Street Fighter II (though widened when both compared to the CPS-2-powered arcade version). ROM hacking communities have also released fan-made patches to improve the quality of the audio and bring the colour palettes more in-line with the arcade version.
