Description

It's Street Fighter as you always remember it, with some new moves, characters and combo systems, as well as a more polished look and feel.

The new moves available for each fighter, called Super moves, allow them to fire off very powerful moves. A bar at the bottom of the screen represents the power that you have to use for the moves. You start the first round on 0, and each attack that you make adds power to the bar. Once you reach level 3, you can unleash the special attacks, that can sometimes KO the opponant.

The other major change over the Street Fighter 2 series are the Alpha counters. These can be used to counter an on-coming attack after blocking.

Trivia

This game was inspired by the Street Fighter animated movie (not Van Damme's). Specifically, the movie's flashback sequences, which explain Ryu's slight hair color change, and Ken's ponytail. However the coolest movie tie-in the game has is the ability to play a cooperative match with a friend as Ryu and Ken versus M. Bison (with all three characters on screen! not like Capcom's "vs" series) mimicking the movie's final battle.
