The opening scene which shows one guy punching another was edited for the USA release. In the original versions of the opening, the blond-haired man is seen punching a black man. Capcom received a letter about possible racism in this intro since the crowd and the man were all white, and while this was not their intent, they nonetheless took this into consideration. Unfortunately, since Street Fighter II was already in massive circulation on the market, along with its upgrade kits Champion Edition and Hyper Fighting, they were unable to make the revision until the Sega Genesis version was published.
