    Capcom's classic arcade beat 'em up roundhouses its way onto PlayStation 2, with a
    compilation of the entire Street Fighter Alpha arcade series. Direct arcade conversions of
    Street Fighter Alpha, Street Fighter Alpha 2, Street Fighter Alpha 2 Gold and Street Fighter
    Alpha 3 have been crammed into one deadly martial arts package, with Super Gem Fighter
    Mini Mix bringing the total to five games on one disc - think of it as being the little finger of
    Capcom's Buddhist palm technique.

    Arcade mode pits you against a series of CPU controlled opponents in order to beat the
    game, while versus mode enables intense head-to-head battles between friends.
    Additionally, all four Alpha titles feature survival mode as well as a dramatic battle mode
    which allows 2-on-1 tag team matches.

    • Five Street Fighter titles in one!


    • Street Fighter Alpha 2 introduces the Custom Combo system which lets you perform
      devastating multi-hit combos


    • Street Fighter Alpha 3 includes an unprecedented 25 characters

The collection features direct conversions of Street Fighter® Alpha, Street Fighter® Alpha 2, Street Fighter® Alpha 2 Gold and Street Fighter® Alpha 3 which have never before been available together in one package.

Street Fighter Alpha Anthology is scheduled for release throughout North America in June 2006. To date, the Street Fighter franchise has sold more than 27 million units worldwide.

    All titles in the collection feature three core gameplay options. Arcade mode pits competitors against a series of CPU controlled opponents in order to beat the game. Versus mode allows two players to choose among the cast of characters for intense head-to-head battles. Fighters can practice special moves and combosto hone their skills in the training mode. Additionally, all four Alpha titles feature survival mode as well as a dramatic battle mode which allows 2-on-1 tag team matches.

    Street Fighter Alpha brings together a cast of 13 characters from the collective Street Fighter universe. The series’ inaugural title introduces super combos and alpha counters to add a new dimension to fighting. Street Fighter Alpha 2 ups the ante with 18 fighters and several new options including high and low Alpha countersas well as more moves and combos for each character. In addition, the second title launches the Custom Combo system which lets players use up a super meter to perform devastating multi-hit combos. Street Fighter Alpha 2 Gold is an enhanced version of the previous game featuring different versions of some of the characters. The most robust entry, Street Fighter Alpha 3, includes an unprecedented 25 characters and offers players the choice of three “isms” fighting styles made popular in previous Street Fighter games. Super Gem Fighter Mini Mix rounds out the anthology with miniature versions of popular Capcom fighters in fierce battles. Combatants vie to collect power-up gems as they perform an array of special attacks and powerful combos.
