    Pummeling perfection in the palm of your hand.

    Street Fighter Alpha 3 storms onto Game Boy Advance with a massive list of fighters and the classic gameplay that has made Capcom's flagship fighter a fave among arcade aficionados.

    Character variety is just one component that makes the Street Fighter series so popular and this game comes through with a mix of nimble bantamweights and bulked-up brawlers -- more than 30 fighters in all. Even a few newcomers to the Alpha universe grace the Game Boy Advance screen.

    Capcom reaches a new level of intensity with faster game play and more precise control in SFA3, as well as three different fighting "isms" to choose from. The A-ism style is taken from the Street Fighter Alpha series, X-ism is from Super Street Fighter II Turbo, and V-ism is from Street Fighter Alpha 2. Some transition will be necessary for veteran fighters due to the button layout of the Game Boy Advance, but the depth and style of the series shines through.

    In Single mode, you face a series of enemies until your final showdown with an end boss. In Survival mode, you face an onslaught of enemies with a limited amount of vitality. Time Attack challenges you to defeat as many enemies as possible within a limited time.

    Vs. mode supports multiplayer mayhem for two players. Multiplayer action requires two GBAs, a GBA Game Link cable and two Street Fighter Alpha 3 Game Paks.

    The vivid backdrops for each fighting stage are bold and colorful and the seamless character animation fits the energetic gameplay. Top-flight music and sound effects punctuate the nonstop action.

    Street Fighter Alpha 3 takes the already-established franchise and tweaks it just enough to make an impressive handheld fighter. The responsive controls will keep up with the fastest fingers and the character animation is fluid. Unlockable modes and characters add replay value when playing solo. Multiplayer support allows you to take on a human opponent.

    Street Fighter Alpha 3 marks a massive leap forward for the 2D beat-'em-up genre.

    Packed with 31 characters past and present, each have the ability to customise their fighting styles in the special World Tour mode.

    The Street Fighter series is about to take a whole new direction as Alpha 3 takes players on a World Tour, with bouts taking place in cities across the globe in a bruising battle to be the ultimate Street Fighter.

    An innovative aspect of the game is the ability to move through the rankings to prove that you are the best!
