Are you a bad enough dude to
The last revision of Street Fighter II for the arcades (Revival and HD Remix don't count here, due to being ports of Super Turbo), Hyper Street Fighter II celebrated Street Fighter 's (belated) 15th Anniversary...by reworking the second game of the series.
The arcade version was a rare product (specifically the US version, which was dumped by the MAME team a long time ago), but was later released for the PlayStation 2 and Xbox - in fact, the game was originally a PS2 release. (The Xbox version, as well as the PS2 version in America, were only available through Street Fighter Anniversary Collection, which also included Street Fighter III: Third Strike...but not the original Street Fighter).
Three leftover songs from Super Turbo (specifically, the character select and attract mode themes and even the aforementioned unused music) remain accessible in this game, accessible by selecting sound code 0353, 0354, and 0352 in the sound test. These were discarded in Hyper in favor of the Super versions of said themes for those instead.
Aside from characters' portraits and sound, inside the game's data there are several assets from the character select screen, attract mode, and endings from the earlier versions of Street Fighter II that lay there as leftovers while dumping assets during development.
In addition to all previous regional changes, Hyper added a new regional difference: the play types "Super T" (Super Turbo) and "Champ" (Champion Edition) in the international versions are "Super X" and "Dash" in the Japanese version, reflecting the different naming of the games between region.
The logo for the secret Super Turbo Old mode (accessible by selecting Super by pressing Start + Jab Punch) is also different between versions, for obvious reasons. The Japanese version also included a win counter.
In 031222 (December 22, 2003) revision, if an attack sound is supposed to repeat (such as ST Sagat's Tiger Uppercut), the attack sound would only play once. This was fixed in 040202 (February 2, 2004) revision.
