Did this happen before for you?
Opt out from any BETA branches in Steam if you have selected any.
Verify game integrity of files.
Try to restart your computer if you haven't.
Could be that simple.

For advanced troubleshooting you basically need a tool to view and monitor the Superfighters Deluxe process when it tries to load .dll and any dependencies in turn. Process Monitor - found here ... ds/procmon - can be used to monitor it.

Just download it and start it. No installation required (you might want to run it in administrator mode). It will start monitoring everything at once showing thousands of entries pretty quickly. So Pause Capture Events once you start it.

Then you can just clear everything in the logs as it's not related to SFD.

Now set up some filters so you only see relevant Superfighters Deluxe entries.
Go to Filter and add two filters.
"Process Name" contains "Superfighters"
"Operation" is "Load Image"

Now you can start capturing events again.
And now you start Superfighters Deluxe using Steam and you should see all entries related to any Load Image (loading of .dll) in the list.

Do you see any Load Image that's not a success event?

Repeat the process after removing the second filter ("Operation" is "Load Image") and see if anything else shows up.
