The success of Street Fighter II came at the right time, the game boom of the ’90s. It exceeded $1.5 billion in gross revenue in 1993, had 25 million American playing the game in homes and arcades in 1994, and sold more than 14 million copies through its Super NES and Mega Drive console ports, making it Capcom’s best-selling game of all time.
