Description

Another Street Fighter sequel (this time for Street Fighter Alpha) adds even more to the classic fighting series.

New characters in this version include Gen (a wise kung-fu master), Rolento (who you may remember from another Capcom classic, Final Fight) and Sakura, a young school girl who follows her hero Ryu so close, she has the same type of moves. Dhalsim and Zangief also return to the fight with some news moves.

The other major difference is the loss of chain-combos and the gain of a custom combo system. Once you reach the required level (which is 1 at the least) you can execute a custom combo by combining any of the buttons (which there are 6 in total) or any of the special attacks (fireballs, etc.)

Trivia

PlayStation Omissions

Missing from the Playstation version of the game are the characters Evil Ryu, Classic Dhalsim and Classic Zangief. Plus the number of color palettes available for each character has been reduced to 2.

Decompression Chip

Together with "Tengai Makyō Zero", this was the only game for the SNES to include the S-DD1 chip. This chip allowed sprite data to be decompressed in real time, and is only one of the various chips that allowed SNES games to stay ahead in the 16-bit console market for a while. It was also one of the latest obstacles that hindered SNES emulation: before the chip was completely emulated, "graphic packs" with the uncompressed graphics were necessary in order to play the game.
