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

There are several in-jokes and messages hidden in the game, for instance on Ken's stage you can find lots of Capcom characters, among them you may find a Strider Hiryu holding a Teddy Bear. This was sort of a "get well soon" message left for a fellow Capcom member who worked under tremendous stress on a Neo-geo pocket version of Strider, and when that version was ultimately canned, had a nervous breakdown, and had to be hospitalized.
