Street Fighter II': Hyper Fighting (henceforth known as Hyper Fighting or Turbo), known in Japan as Street Fighter II Dash Turbo and officially rendered Street Fighter II′ Turbo (the word "Dash" is represented by a prime symbol), was released a few months after Champion Edition in response to the proliferation of unauthorized grey-market hacks of Champion Edition that began to appear in the wake of the game's popularity. The bootlegs allowed weird behavior such as mid-air special moves, and even changing a players character in the middle of a match. While they were interesting to try, they generally broke the balance of the characters.
Capcom decided to release Hyper Fighting as an official upgrade that could not be matched by bootleggers, while maintaining the character balance. It incorporated a number of enhancements, the biggest being a significant increase in the speed of the game compared to previous versions, hence the "Hyper Fighting" subtitle.
A SNES version was produced simply titled Street Fighter II Turbo, which features a "Turbo" mode based on Hyper Fighting and a "Normal" mode based on Champion Edition. The Sega Genesis version of Street Fighter II: Special Champion Edition also features a game mode based on Hyper Fighting dubbed "Hyper" mode, in addition to its standard "Champ" mode.
The cast, story, controls, and rules for Hyper Fighting are identical to the original, so please see the SF2 guide for any questions regarding how to play. A list of the updates can be found below. The enhancements of Hyper Fighting build on those established in Champion Edition, so see the Champion Edition guide for the list of changes that were carried over to Hyper Fighting.
