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

The character Dan (who made his first appearance in this game) was made as a sarcastic response to Capcom's main competitor on arcade games SNK, who have for years been stealing and cloning Capcom's ideas. As such Dan sports many details reminescent of some SNK characters (his storyline, the ponytail, etc.) and is quite literally a bad clone of Ryu and Ken who has lots of taunting moves but no real power.
