super street fighter 2

Pro tip: Cheesing your way through Super Street Fighter II

It might not be immediately obvious, but in the Street Fighter games, you're participating in a tournament. A tournament where you can (more or less) control the outcome.

When your opponent is chosen, press Start on Controller 2 to bring in a New Challenger.

Have Controller 2 pick the character you were fighting against, and pummel them mercilessly. Win the match, and you'll notice that you continue to the next stage.

And since you know you'll be fighting the four Boss Characters, you can also do this to beat them early.

Well, except for M. Bison. You have to beat him the old fashioned way, I'm afraid.

Oh, and this works for all variants of Street Fighter 2.

Pro tip: Selecting yet more colors for your Street Fighter in Super Street Fighter II

One of the... sort of interesting things about Super Street Fighter II is that you can pick lots of different colors for your characters. What color you get depends on what button you use to select your fighter (your choice of A, B, X, Y, L, R, or Start).


If you press and hold any of the buttons in (except for Start) when you pick your character, you'll notice that you get yet another color!

And most of them look pretty awful, but there are a few good ones in there. You just have to dig around to find them.
