Super Street Fighter II: The New Challengers introduced four new fighters to the roster: T. Hawk, Dee Jay, Fei-Long, and Cammy. Only one of them really stayed in the public eye.

Unused Graphics

Large and small name labels exist for someone named "Sarah". Given that SSF2 beat Virtua Fighter to arcades by a month, it's not likely this character was cut over legal issues.

Alternate Subtitle

A slightly different "New Challengers" (no "The") subtitle graphic.

Unused Hadouken Impact Frame

Following in its predecessor's footsteps, the new impact sprite for Ryu's souped-up and redrawn Hadoukens also disappears before its last frame of animation is shown.

Incomplete Cammy Kick Animation

An animation consisting of three incomplete sprites exist for Cammy.

Unused Text

Due to a glitch, Cammy's ending abruptly cuts off the text on a certain part, although the complete text is in the ROM.


(Discovery: ReyVGM)
Wait! If what he
says is true...

The missing part was restored in Hyper Street Fighter II, but with a comma instead of ellipses.

Unused Instrument Samples

A few instrument samples exist in the data but go unused by any of the game's songs.




Regional Differences

Cammy's Shoryuken Motion + Kick and QCF + Kick moves are named Cannon Spike and Spiral Arrow in the Japanese version and Thrust Kick and Cannon Drill in the international versions, respectively. Dee Jay also has different names for his projectile attack (Slash! in Japan and Max Out! elsewhere).
