Street Fighter II, the second entry of the fighting game series developed by Capcom, is one of the more popular video games ever released, thanks to its excellent gameplay experience which has influenced pretty much all the other fighting games that came after it. The original Street Fighter II has received plenty of revisions over the years which included new playable fighters, new special moves, and new options which expand the gameplay experience considerably.
One of the less known Street Fighter II versions is Super Street Fighter II Turbo: Revival, which has been released a while back on Nintendo Gameboy Advanced. The portable version of Super Street Fighter II Turbo came with a few features that are not available in other versions, as well as a new control scheme and more.
Starting today those who have never played this version of Super Street Fighter II Turbo and those who want to play it again will be able to do so in a rather comfortable way, granted they have access to the Japanese Wii U eShop, as Super Street Fighter II Turbo: Revival has been released today in Japan. While there are no news on the game’s Western release we will definitely hear more about it soon, as the game has been rated by the Australian Classification Board last year.
Super Street Fighter II Turbo: Revival is not a port of the original Super Street Fighter II Turbo but an original portable version coming with some features that make the experience smoother on the old Nintendo handheld console such as an Easy Commands option and more. The game also features two different versions of Akuma, new artwork for the character selection, victory screen and character endings, different backgrounds for the Ryu, Ken, Chun-Li, Guile, Zangief, Balrog and M. Bison stages and more. Super Street Fighter II Turbo: Revival isn’t the best version of Super Street Fighter II Turbo by any means but it’s definitely an interesting game for long time fans of the series who want to experience a slightly different take of the experience.
Super Street Fighter II Turbo: Revival is now available for purchase on the Japanese Wii U eShop for the price of 702 yen. We will keep you updated on the matter as soon as more comes in on it so stay tuned for all the latest news.
