    Street Fighter 2 - Rainbow Edition - Arcade - One Credit Clear

    This was a great one. It's basically a bootleg version of Champion Edition that came out in arcades everywhere. It's ridiculous but all kinds of good fun to play.

    I remember that bootleg SFII appearing for a while in a Chinese takeaway near me. Wasn't there long and people who didn't have a chance to play it never believed the rest of year about all the weird stuff you could do.

    The mad thing about those bootlegs was to try and appreciate them in a pre internet world. We all knew bullshitters and videogames were open season largely for people making stuff up. There were loads of rumours about hidden characters and modes and features but for a version like this that actually existed, a lot of the time there was no way of verifying it.

    Imagine trying to convince someone that you'd played a version of Street Fighter 2 in a Chinese Takeaway, that isn't there when you try and explain it, where you could switch characters and do special moves in mid air. You couldn't just Google it and show someone a video on your phone.

    Those bootlegs inspired Capcom to make Street Fighter 2 Turbo because they liked the speed that this version offered and certain special moves did go on to be ammended so they could be done in mid air like Hurricane Kicks etc.

    I really enjoyed putting that video together, and the history of the whole scene is something that fascinated me then and still does now. Thanks again for checking out the content!
