Super Street Fighter II: The New Challengers Retro Review (NintendoLife)

"Work in progress or fighting masterpiece?
Street Fighter II hit arcades in 1991 but amazingly, by the time 1993 rolled around, players had already experienced three upgrades to the core game: Street Fighter II': Champion Edition, Street Fighter II' Turbo: Hyper Fighting and Super Street Fighter II: The New Challengers. The last of those titles was arguably the most significant upgrade since the original, offering four entirely new fighters, improved visuals and rebalanced gameplay. Super Street Fighter II was ported to the SNES in 1994 (the same year that Super Street Fighter II Turbo hit arcades, but we'll get onto that later) and came on a whopping 32 megabit cartridge. Despite the enhancements listed on the packaging and the alluring promise of new characters to master, it wasn't the comprehensive improvement over Turbo that many had hoped for and at the time many felt that the Street Fighter craze was on the wane.", writes NintendoLife. (Super Street Fighter 2: The New Challengers, Wii U) 8/10
