Street Fighter Alpha 2, known as Street Fighter Zero 2 in Japan, Asia, South America, and Spain. Is a 2D fighting game developed and published by Capcom. Street Fighter Alpha 2 is seen as a overhaul over Street Fighter Alpha: Warriors' Dreams than a actual sequel. The game features a number improvements over the last game including gameplay systems, character moves, and stages.
Street Fighter Alpha 2 retains most of the features in Street Fighter Alpha: Warriors' Dreams like the three level super combo gauge, alpha counters and air-blocking. The main new feature in Street Fighter Alpha 2 is the custom combo system which replaces chain combos from the previous game. When the custom combo guage is at level 1 or above the player can activate a custom combo by by pressing two punch buttons following a kick. Custom combos grant the player a limited amount of time to chain almost any attacks together into a combo. The time limit is dependent on how much power was in the super meter when the combo was initiated.
Street fighter games where often ported to home platforms. However most home platforms could not keep up with the CPS-2 hardware; this led to gameplay changes between platforms.
The Sega Saturn version was an improvement over its arcade counterpart. The Saturn version had a survival mode as well as art gallery in addition to all thew arcade gameplay features.
The SNES version was the greatest affected. It has only one of the secret characters found in the other versions, a classic version of Chun Li. This version also has slow sprite decompression resulting in load times on the cartridge.
All ten selectable characters from Street Fighter Alpha: Warriors' Dreams return along with Akuma, Dan and M. Bison being in the starting lineup.
