About The Game

Super Puzzle Fighter 2 Turbo is 2-player arcade video puzzle game based on Capcom's legendary "Street Fighter" series. Puzzle Fighter's gameplay is reminiscent of Sega's superb 1992 puzzle game, "Puyo Puyo".

Players take on the role of one of the famous Street Fighter characters, which are represented visually between the 2 play areas in the middle of the screen. Players must then manipulate falling coloured gem blocks, matching the colours to gems already in the play area; before finally destroying them with orbs of a like colour. Whenever a player destroys a number of blocks, their on-screen Street Fighter counter-part will be shown attacking the player's opponent character. The fighting move used is dependent on both the colour and number of blocks the player has destroyed.

Trivia

Released in June 1996.

This game is known in Japan as "Super Puzzle Fighter 2 X".

The title is derived from "Super Street Fighter II Turbo", but most of the graphics, sounds, and presentation is inspired by "Street Fighter Alpha".

Devilot (secret character) is from "Cyberbots - Fullmetal Madness" (on the S-008 Super-8).

In the background of Chun-li's stage, there is "Son Son" flying around on a cloud.

Sakura's stage is based on Ryu and Guy's stages from "Street Fighter Alpha - Warriors' Dreams".

Ryu's stage (in SPF2X) is a variation of this, with a bunch of strange stuff in the background.

Ken's stage is based on Ken and Nash's stages from "Street Fighter Alpha - Warriors' Dreams".

Dan's stage (in SPF2X) is a variation of this stage, set at a different time of day.

Gouki's stage is based on his "Street Fighter Alpha 2" stage.

Victor Entertainment released a limited-edition soundtrack album for this game (Quiz Nanairo Dreams Nijiirochou no Kiseki, Super Puzzle Fighter II X - VICL-40210) on 22/01/1997.

Updates

The US version is slightly different, it has the "Recycle It, Don't Trash It!" screen.
