Maybe not a question you get everyday…
6 years ago, I read an article on GameSpot about the history of Street Fighter. Now, I can’t find it at all. Instead, it’s been replaced by a crappy 10 minute video (as has the very detailed article on Mortal Kombat as well).
Anyway, I had read in it that the new costumes for Street Fighter 2’ Turbo were based on Hong Kong designs. IMO, that game had the best costumes in the history of the SF series. Lots of blue, very serious, detailed, and realistic.
When they came out with Super Street Fighter II, they gave extra costumes to all the fighters including the new four.
What I’m wondering is…For Cammy, Dee Jay, T-Hawk, and Fei-Long…were the Medium Punch and the Heavy Punch costumes based on the Champion Edition and Hyper Fighting designs, as if they had actually been in the previous games? Or were they just random designs like the rest of the new costumes? Because if you look at them, at least, the Heavy Punch costumes fit in very well with the other costumes from Turbo. I know they retouched Balrog (Boxer) from the original Turbo by making him more tan, making the orange deeper, and changing the gloves to green so they may have based it on them.
Out there question, I know. I’ve had it on my mind for years. Is there anyway to find this out or is it simply lost in time? Thanks!
