The third in the Alpha series has a total of 31 fighters, the most in
the series so far. New characters include old favorites E. Honda,
Blanka, Vega, Cammy, T. Hawk, Dee Jay, Juni and Juli. Some of the
newest fighters on the block include a former Final Fight character
(Cody, who has been in jail since the last Final Fight game, or so his
clothing suggests), Karin Kanzuki and Rainbow Mika.
The major difference between this Alpha and the last two are the new play modes World Tour, Arcade, VS, Training and Entry.
World Tour- Simply choose your fighter and travel around the world, fighting the
home town heroes that you run into. The more fights you win, the
stronger you fighter becomes. You can also learn new moves, and there
are three levels of Super moves to choose from before you start each
round (called Isms).
Arcade - A simple conversion of the
arcade version. Beat each fighter with your chosen warrior, in three
rounds per match (much the same as past versions of Street Fighter)
Versus - Two human players battle it out.
Training - A good way to learn all the super moves that are available, against a dummy.
Entry- If you save your character during the World Tour mode, you can upload
him here to use in the other modes in the game (especially handy for
Finally, if you complete certain areas of the game
three new fighters become available, including another old favourite in
Guile, Evil Ryu and Shin Akuma.
