Released in March 1992.

In Japan, the apostrophe-like character on the game's official logo is actually a prime symbol and thus the official title is pronounced "Street Fighter II Dash - Champion Edition". Likewise "Street Fighter II' - Hyper Fighting" is known as "Street Fighter II Dash Turbo - Hyper Fighting" in Japan.

This game is an enhanced version of "Street Fighter II - The World Warrior" :

  • Added an alternate colour scheme for each character and the ability to select boss characters (Vega, M. Bison, Balrog, Sagat).
  • Each stage had different background colours from the original (mainly time of day changes), here are the background changes :
    1. Ryu stage : now has midnight blue sky instead of red-orange, and has yellow moon.
    2. E. Honda stage : the walls are yellow, the big picture (excluding the sun) is now blue-purple. The 'Victory' sign is now red-orange. The Hiragana Yu on the left is now red.
    3. Blanka stage : the snake is now red, and the houses are now wood colour.
    4. Guile stage : Sunset, purple tinted canopy on the jet, The symbol on the ground is now red, and the missile linings are now red.
    5. Ken stage : boat is now blue, the 2 guys on top are now wearing brown clothes, and teal clothes. The guy in the trench-coat and hat is now yellow.
    6. Chun-Li stage : the 2 customers now wear pink, the second sign is now green, the meats on the ceiling are now brown, and the ground is now a darker colour.
    7. Zangief stage : is now gold and to the left is now copper. The "Attention" flyers are now red with yellow letters.
    8. Dhalsim stage : now has blue curtains, silver stone floor, and blue carpet.
    9. M. Bison ('Balrog' outside of Japan) stage : purple floor.
    10. Balrog ('Vega' outside of Japan) stage : blue stage and floor, and the Flamenco dancers now wear pink instead of yellow.
    11. Sagat stage : Buddhist statue is gold, and the grass is now a darker green.
    12. Vega ('M. Bison' outside of Japan) stage : the sky is evening this time.
  • New moves were added for some characters.
  • Chun-Li and Vega's portraits have been recoloured.
  • Overall hit damage was reduced (favouring combos attacks instead of special moves).
  • Special moves were tweaked a bit (i.e.: the fighting styles of Ryu and Ken were distinguishable from one another)
  • The main title screen was changed from black to blue.
  • Various cosmetic enhancements were made to each character's physical appearance.
  • In the original SF2, Ryu's stage featured breakable 'Fuurinkazan' signs. These signs have been removed in this game and are not seen again until "Hyper Street Fighter II - The Anniversary Edition".
  • In Ken's stage in SF2 there were 2 barrels and a stack of boxes which were a single breakable item. From "Street Fighter II' - Champion Edition" to "Super Street Fighter II X - Grand Master Challenge" ("Super Street Fighter II Turbo" outside of Japan) there is just a single barrel in Ken's stage. The two barrels and stack of boxes from the original SF2 would later return in "Hyper Street Fighter II - The Anniversary Edition".
  • Sagat's SF2 stage had a palm tree in the foreground. The palm tree is gone in this game and does not return.

Various unofficial hacks of this game are known as "V004", "Accelerator Pt+.II", "Rainbow", "YYC", "Kouryu" and "Red Wave".

Pony Canyon / Scitron released a limited-edition soundtrack album for this game (Street Fighter II : G.S.M. Capcom 4 - PCCB-00056) 21/03/1991.


US versions are slightly different, they have the "Winners Don't Use Drugs" screen.
