Street Fighter 2 Turns 30, And Some Never Ever Stopped Playing
Street Fighter 2, one of the most crucial combating games– and video games– of all time, is now thirty years old. Since February 6, it has actually been 3 decades given that Ryu and company landed in arcades, and the fighter’s classic gameplay has actually generated many imitators.
In a post on its Twitter page, Capcom commemorated the game’s 30th birthday with a short gameplay clip. Street Fighter 2 was even more successful than its predecessor, which was a fairly restricted game that just included two playable characters: Ryu and Ken.

Following the preliminary success of Street Fighter 2, Capcom ported the video game to numerous different systems and released follow-ups that included brand-new functions and characters. These included Street Fighter 2: Active Battling, Super Street Fighter II, and Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo. On Switch, Ultra Street Fighter II also provides players the option of a brand-new or classic art style, working the classic mechanics into a video game that looks like it might have released today.Of course
, the Street Fighter series continued well after the second game’s lots of versions. Street Fighter 3, Street Fighter 4, Street Fighter 5, and Street Fighter Alpha have all succeeded in their own right, but Street Fighter 2 will likely always stand as the series’ greatest game. It even got its own Arcade1Up home game cabinet, and an upgraded version revealed last month will include art work like the original cabinet.
