Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo
If you can't get enough Street Fighter II, the next game in the series is coming out soon. And you won't believe which system it's going to: 3DO! Okay, you can get up off the floor now. You heard me right. The most popular fighting game around is going 32-Bit. Instead of just being Super Street Fighter, it's going all the way as Super SF2 Turbo. Now players will be able to do all the new moves and the ultra-deadly Super Moves, too. Even the evil Akuma is lurking around somewhere, just waiting for a few foolish souls to challenge him.
If any game is going to sell the 3DO, it's going to be this hot title.

Super Street Fighter II Turbo is about to make its home-system debut...for 3DO!...by Panasonic!
Don't worry-the World Warriors won't be busting up boom boxes and television sets. Panasonic Software is making a serious push into big-time game publishing, and the CD is being programmed from scratch by Capcom of Japan. Yes, it'll be a direct port of the killer arcade coin-op.
Straight from The Street
The design plan calls for the disc to feature the 16 Street Fighters with all their special moves and combo capabilities intact (juggle combos, too). You'll even get the eye-popping Super Death Moves. Of course, key questions (as always for any Street Fighter iteration) will concern damage protection, the balance of character strength, and control response, but hands-on feet-and-fist action with completed software is the only real way to gauge those factors.
One thing for sure is that the character and background graphics will sport the terrific look of the arcade version, with an added 3DO polish. SF heavyweights will still be able to beat their way to the cool Turbo ending scenes, and no new animations or cinema sequences will be in the mix.
Super 3DO Shodown
Hmmm, Super Turbo and Samurai Shodown for 300 (see Special Feature, page 42), That 32-bit arcade action makes Matsushita's $399 little black box suddenly look awfully attractive. Finding Akuma could be the deciding factor.
Turbo! Get ready to rumble street fighters, this one looks to be Capcom's best ever!! As the name of the game implies. Super SF 2 Turbo is substantially faster than its predecessor. Capcom has obviously heard the beleaguered cries of the players who liked the speed of the earlier SF 2 Turbo. The speed increase is, once again, immediately noticeable.
Also of note is the new moves that each of the World Warriors now possess. Each character has an average of three or more new attacks which include a new technique known as the "Super Combo." To use the Super Combo, you must rely on a small meter located at the bottom of the screen. After using various attacks, the meter will begin to fill up. Some moves will make the meter charge faster than others. Once the meter is filled, the word "Super" will flash, signaling you to use the Super Combo that your character possesses. Each character's Super Combo uses a specific Joystick/Button combination that the player must execute. The results of these combos are devastating!
Finally, there is supposedly a new super-character who is now the end-boss of the game! Yes, that's right, it could be the fabled "Grand Master!" The game is still in the preliminary stages, but from what we've seeryit looks to be a real knockout!!
Special thanks goes out to Michael Borg, Manager of Super Just Games in Northbrook, Illinois for all his help! Thanks for the pizza, ouys!
