uhh...it is Street Fighter and it is not a mock it was the first game in the series the series did not start with Street Fighter 2 you know. it has many characters that would reshow up in the Street Fighter II and Alpha series years later includeing Ken, Ryu, (the main characters) Sagat (last boss), Adon, Birdie and Gen. it is the true prequal to SF II , the SF II game was a major overhaul of the first game and redefined fighting games as we know it (but you probably knew that part)
It was actually the prequel? I swear I read something about how it couldn't use the name Street Fighter that's why they switched it to Fighting Street.... but it was awfully hard to play after the 3 stage....
as for why is was not called street fighter in the usa i am not sure i think the original name was simply Fighting Street in the usa arcade and when the made the sequel they updated everything and the name as well. or there is simply a posibility that Fighting Street in the Japanese arcade was called Street Fighter and they changed the name for the USA market, there probably was no specific reason for the name change many games have that happen when they are imported.
yea the Street Fighter 2 hucard for the turbo was huge i believe it was the first 20 meg Hu-card and all the additional stuff required extra chips which resulted in a huge card, the game was actually quite good and was superior to the Genesis port and was alittle less then the Snes one, a game like this could have sold many turbos in the USA but als it like many others never made it over.

I actually like it better then the SNES one, that is, except next to Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo. Anyways, the arcade game, both in the US & Japan, was Street Fighter, we used to have one at a laundry mat, that is looooooooong gone now. And the PC Engine version is called Fighting Street. So, it's not like it was changed for the US market. It's really wierd.
i think she means the normal gamepad i think you can still play it with that but you are missing one or two buttons (i think it was two)you use button 1 and 2 as well as select and run as your main buttons.

Actually, I think select switches you between punch & kick.
Ok, I just popped it in my PCE GT, & I was right. Run, I, & II are all punch, then you switch them to kick. Either way, I always play this game with the 6 button pad on my Super Grafx. I guess it's not too bad playing it on the 2 button controller, but, I'm not that great at the game, so, switching it back n' forth, ain't so easy for me.
