Street Fighter II: Hyper Fighting Unofficially Hits The Virtual Boy

Street-Fighter-II-Virtual-Boy-HomebrewIt's not April so you can rest assured that this news is not a hoax. Believe it or not but homebrew developers have somehow managed to bring Capcom's timeless Street Fighter II over to the Nintendo Virtual Boy! Luckily for us, the team behind this impressive creation have generously released a playable demo ROM for all to download.

As exciting as this news is, it does, however, come with one slight frustration. Hyper Fighting, as it is known, currently does not work in any Virtual Boy emulator out there and requires the expensive and elusive Flash Boy flash cartridge.

Nevertheless the demo version of Hyper Fighting has been released online and features the ability to take on 4 familiar fighters in 4 familiar stages. While we're yet to try it on the Flash Boy in the RetroCollect office, both screenshots posted online and the general reaction from Virtual Boy fans around the web has gone on to suggest that this is something even Capcom would be proud of.

UPDATE: We're back at HQ and have had some time to trial this masterpiece. Without going into too much detail, this is nothing short of groundbreaking. Check out our gameplay video below to see what all the fuss is about.
