Street Fighter II Edition

SNEScapades #18; Street Fighter II. We think you'll get a kick out of this one. Plus we reflect on the state of the SNES on its first birthday.

This one was so big that it needed it’s own episode. We talk the original version of Street Fighter II: The World Warrior for the SNES. Seeing as how we know there are updated versions of this game coming, we really didn’t expect to be quite as hot on the original as we were. But even in its unupdated form, Street Fighter II is such a monumental achievement on the system in 1992 that we couldn’t help but sing its praises for well over half an hour.

But this will work out well for you too, dear listener. It means you’ll get to hear samples of every character’s stage theme. We also end the episode by talking about the list as it stands as we approach the SNES’s first birthday!
