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.

1001 Video Games

Street Fighter III: Third Strike appears in the book 1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die by General Editor Tony Mott.


The character named Hugo also appeared in the Final Fight series. Likewise, Poison (the character that appears in his intro and victory poses) was also an enemy in that game, but only in part one.
