Street Fighter II': Special Champion Edition (Genesis) Playthrough – NintendoComplete

A playthrough of Capcom’s 1993 versus-fighting game for the Sega Genesis, Street Fighter II’: Special Champion Edition.

Played through with Ken on the hardest difficulty level. I didn’t lose any rounds and got the best ending.

It’s pretty insane how close graphically this hits the feel of the arcade. Unless you put it side-by-side with the SNES or the TG16 versions, it’s not often that lack of on-screen colors sticks out (which is certainly not the case in many Genesis games ported from more capable platforms). Otherwise, it’s just as good as any of the other versions. Just make sure that you have the 6-button pad. It’s not really worth the effort otherwise.

    Man this port of this game brings me back my memories when I was younger

  2. Felipe Ney on April 19, 2021 at 12:06 am

    had both genesis and snes versions. Technicalities apart, the genesis version was much better to play

    All around excellent port that was quite surprising at the time because no one expected it to ever land on the Genesis, but the graphics and animation were all top notch. The only real flaw was the low quality voices.

    His name isn’t Ken it’s ENKI

  5. Video Games And The World on April 19, 2021 at 12:15 am

    I thought this was better than the SNES version.

  6. Michael Morthel on April 19, 2021 at 12:16 am

    Just like lethal enforcers, companies put much more effort into the genesis versions of games than their snes counterparts.

    I’m pretty sure I uttered my first ever obscenity while trying to beat M. Bison.

  11. Nei on April 19, 2021 at 12:24 am

    I love the background of the maps in this versión, is too nostálgic and the sound efects are másterpieces

  12. Mark Whitby on April 19, 2021 at 12:25 am

    The day this game graced my Mega Drive was the most important day of its life…. But for me, it was Tuesday. (and Monday, Wednesday, and every day for about five years!)

  16. Simply Here on April 19, 2021 at 12:28 am

    I first played this on the 2 controller genesis plug and play

  17. Alex Barreto on April 19, 2021 at 12:29 am

    The version of snes was nasty! This had better sound ( except voices) and is more detailed

  18. Stephan Corzine on April 19, 2021 at 12:30 am

    I love street fighter

  19. Adub nostalicking on April 19, 2021 at 12:34 am

    ’90s are all that

  20. Super Tune on April 19, 2021 at 12:35 am

    the voices sound worse than the master system version

  21. Jose G on April 19, 2021 at 12:36 am

  22. Dami Paredes on April 19, 2021 at 12:36 am

  24. Adesh Mahabir on April 19, 2021 at 12:38 am

    I remember playing this on my Sega Genesis with the three button controller and I mastered it.

  25. chisoxfan708 on April 19, 2021 at 12:39 am

    Shitty sound. Shitty graphics SNES is far superior.

  29. HelpKirbyHasA Gun_204 on April 19, 2021 at 12:45 am

    Was I the only one who thought Vega was a girl growing up
    Boy was I shocked when I played Street Fighter 4, I played this game when I was 3 up until I was 10 then the Genesis broke and I stopped playing until I bought SF4 and now SF5

  30. Adub nostalicking on April 19, 2021 at 12:46 am

    Classic

  31. adamaze on April 19, 2021 at 12:46 am

    how they packed this in a 32MB catridge is beyond me

  32. Leandro Buda on April 19, 2021 at 12:47 am

    O personagem fala a batida da música pára

  33. UnknownEX on April 19, 2021 at 12:48 am

    Nineties for video games were such a simple time yet really revolutionary and creative ❤️ Street Fighter 2 is part of the revolution indeed, what a timeless classic!

  34. Matias Tau on April 19, 2021 at 12:49 am

    60 fps? how?

  35. Shon Black on April 19, 2021 at 12:50 am

    The very first fighting game I ever played good times… Good times

  36. Adub nostalicking on April 19, 2021 at 12:51 am

    Can’t wait September 19th to play this on Sega Genesis Mini

  37. Ryan Depaulo: Degenerate Gambler on April 19, 2021 at 12:52 am

    dam these guys are old now

  38. Celine Senden on April 19, 2021 at 12:53 am

    Best version ever

  39. KBoss302 on April 19, 2021 at 12:53 am

    14-year-old me is still pissed that Sega players got to use the bosses and I couldn’t with the SNES version.

  40. GamerGee on April 19, 2021 at 12:53 am

    2:53 my favorite death cry. The only clear version of this is on the sharp 68000 port. Not even the arcade has the auauauaaaaaa part at the end lol

  41. Rodzilla97 on April 19, 2021 at 12:55 am

    snes SF2 Turbo is better. better graphics, no black bars on the top and bottom of the screen, better music, and better voice samples

    genesis has the intro though, that’s awesome

  42. Anotherway 18 on April 19, 2021 at 12:55 am

    How the hell is ryu 5”10 150 pounds lol

  43. Ayoub Haddouchi on April 19, 2021 at 12:57 am

    The Sega Genesis version will always be my Go-To version of Street Fighter 2

  44. يوتيوب الوعد قدام on April 19, 2021 at 12:57 am

    nice graphic sega

  45. Tamhas Woods on April 19, 2021 at 12:58 am

    SF2SCE on the Mega Drive……. AKA: My third parent and extracurricular tutor.

  46. MrZillas on April 19, 2021 at 12:59 am

    I played the shit out of it in the 90s. Before school, after school, and in school I could only think of it. Buying this and 2 6-button-controllers made me poor lol.

  47. Cozmic Mojo on April 19, 2021 at 1:00 am

    So basically this is Street Fighter Turbo without the Hyperfighting..

  48. GamerGuy78 on April 19, 2021 at 1:00 am

    This was such a big deal when this came out on the Genesis. I remember saving my money to get this. It didn’t leave the Genesis for a very long time. Good times.

  49. LoveAnimeAngel_2021 on April 19, 2021 at 1:01 am

    this vid brings back my childhood memories of playing this game every day on the Mega Drive, i’ve lost count how many times i’ve completed it with every fighter on all difficulty levels.

  50. Robin West on April 19, 2021 at 1:05 am

    The special Sega 6-button controller released exclusively for the game was the best controller for playing SF2 ever made. None of that crappy SNES crosshair – this controller had a pivoted D-pad that made rolling out those hadokens as precise and fluid as possible. Exceptional design.
