- TRIVIA -


In Japan, the apostrophe in the title is pronounced 'Dash', therefore, the full name is "Street Fighter II Dash - Champion Edition".


This game is an enhanced version of "Street Fighter II - The World Warrior" :

* Added an alternate color scheme for each character and the ability to select boss characters (Vega, M. Bison, Balrog, Sagat).

* Each stage had different background colors from the original (mainly time of day changes), here are the background changes :

1) Ryu stage : now has midnight blue sky instead of red-orange, and has yellow moon.

2) E. Honda stage : the walls are yellow, the big picture (excluding the sun) is now blue-purple. The 'Victory' sign is now red-orange. The Hiragana Yu on the left is now red.

3) Blanka stage : the snake is now red, and the houses are now wood color.

4) Guile stage : Sunset, purple tinted canopy on the jet, The symbol on the ground is now red, and the missile linings are now red.

5) Ken stage : boat is now blue, the 2 guys on top are now wearing brown clothes, and teal clothes. The guy in the trenchcoat and hat is now yellow.

6) Chun Li stage : the 2 customers now wear pink, the second sign is now green, and the ground is now a darker color.

7) Zangief stage : is now gold and to the left is now copper.

8) Dhalsim stage : now has blue curtains, silver stone floor, and blue carpet.

9) M. Bison ('Balrog' outside of Japan) stage : purple floor.

10) Balrog ('Vega' outside of Japan) stage : blue stage and floor, and the Flamenco dancers now wear pink instead of yellow.

11) Sagat stage : Buddhist statue is gold, and the grass is now a darker green.

12) Vega ('M. Bison' outside of Japan) stage : the sky is evening this time.

* New moves were added for some characters.

* Chun Li and Vega's portraits have been recolored.

* Overall hit damage was reduced (favoring combos attacks instead of special moves).

* Special moves were tweaked a bit (ie : the fighting styles of Ryu and Ken were distinguishable from one another)

* The main title screen was changed from black to blue.

* Various cosmetic enhancements were made to each character's physical appearance.

* In the original SF2, Ryu's stage featured breakable 'Fuurinkazan' signs. These signs have been removed in this game and are not seen again until "Hyper Street Fighter II - The Anniversary Edition".

* In Ken's stage in SF2 there were two barrels and a stack of boxes which were a single breakable item. From "Street Fighter II' - Champion Edition" to "Super Street Fighter II X: Grand Master Challenge" ("Super Street Fighter II Turbo" outside of Japan) there is just a single barrel in Ken's stage. The two barrels and stack of boxes from the original SF2 would later return in "Hyper Street Fighter II - The Anniversary Edition".


* Sagat's SF2 stage had a palm tree in the foreground. The palm tree is gone in this game and does not return.


Various unofficial hacks of this game are known as "V004", "Accelerator Pt+.II", "Rainbow", "YYC", "Kouryu" and "Red Wave".


Pony Canyon / Scitron released a limited-edition soundtrack album for this game (Street Fighter II : G.S.M. Capcom 4 - PCCB-00056) 21/03/1991.
