Hyper Fighting brings Street Fighter action to the Virtual Boy

The Virtual Boy has a pretty dedicated homebrew community, who’ve done all kinds of weird and wonderful things with Nintendo’s black and red headache inducer. Today you can add Street Figher II to that list.

Dubbed Hyper Fighting, this unofficial version of Street Fighter II was developed by Mr Anon on M.K.’s Virtual Boy fighting engine. You can get the demo over at the Planet VB forums, but you’ll need a VB flash cart in order to play it, as it is not compatible with any emulators at this point.

If you’d like to see how it plays, watch this clip posted to YouTube by the team over at RetroCollect:
