Description

3rd update to Street Fighter 3, Capcom's classic 2D fighter. The new version includes new music and artwork, more super arts for each character, a grading system, a manual throw system, path selection and new characters including (YES!) Chun-Li. The Dreamcast port also offers a training record option were you can record a certain move or combo and have it play against you over and over to see how you can parry it, plus a "system direction" option which allows you to modify practically every aspect of the game (air-blocking, combo limits, etc.) to customize it to your liking.

Trivia

One of Chun-Li's win quotes makes reference to her supposedly 'throwing her bracelets'. Longtime fans know that this was a joke in reference to rumours that in the previous Street Fighter 2, Chun-Li could throw her bracelets as a projectile.

Subsequently, those rumours gave rise to Chun-Li's current Kikkoken fireball projectile added later in the series in Street Fighter 2 Turbo.
