Street Fighter II: The World Warrior (JP) is a fighting game developed by Capcom and released first on the Arcades, ported later for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System. It is the second game in the Street Fighter series, the very first main title to be released in a Nintendo hardware, and the begin of a series under the label Street Fighter II, which would get seven more releases, between Arcade and other systems (including the Game Boy Advance).

It's the most successful fighting game in the gaming industry, and the Super Nintendo release was the best-selling Capcom game until 2013 (but remaining their most selled game of all the time to a single platform through to the present day). This version was also released twice on the Virtual Console service for the Wii and Wii U.

The game tells the story of eight fighters from different nationalities, traveling around the world in a fighting tournament, each one with their own reasons; They face the evil ambitions of the criminal corporation Shadaloo and their commander M. Bison.

This game was the debut title for all of the characters except Ryu and Ken.

In addition there are four boss characters (listed in order faced), and they are only encountered after defeating the other normal fighters.

Three of them had their names changed for the western version (and that was kept as a characteristic in the series):

  • Balrog (called M. Bison in Japan) - from the United States
  • Vega (called Balrog in Japan) - from Spain
  • Sagat - from Thailand
  • M. Bison (called Vega in Japan) - faced in Thailand

Sagat is the only boss returning from a previous game.
