Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo (known in Japan as Super Street Fighter II X — Grand Master Challenge) is an updated version of Super Street Fighter II. The game was released in 1994 and features four “Speed” settings (hence the name “Turbo”) plus new moves and animations for all the existing characters, as well as the first appearance of Akuma. Super Turbo also introduced Super Combo techniques to the series.
Super Turbo introduced several new gameplay mechanics not present in previous versions of Street Fighter 2, including the addition of combination moves called super combos and air combos. It also introduced the secret character Akuma, who would go on to become a recurring character in later Street Fighter installments and other Capcom fighting games.
Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo Gameplay
Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo featured several changes and additions to the play mechanics inherited from Super Street Fighter II. The HUD featured new graphics. The original opening sequence and unused sequence, which had featured two generic characters fighting in front of a crowd, was replaced by a new opening featuring lead character Ryu launching a Hadouken projectile towards the screen, now intertwined with images of Chun-Li and Cammy, as well as brief flashes of the image of new hidden character Akuma. New animation frames were drawn for all the victory poses and the basic and special moves of the characters in Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo.
