Episode 136: Street Fighter II 25th Anniversary


In this episode of Retro Asylum Matt Lambourne (aka Metz) and special guest Matt Aguilera run through the pre-history and legacy of The Street Fighter II series, covering the games that preceded it, all the home conversions and the games that wanted to cash in on its success.

We also have a special guest contribution from forum member ‘RetroRic’ who gives us an expert insight into the very much thriving SF II arcade competitive scene. Smash your Shoryuken into the play button and prepare for battle!
