Capcom Characters

In the game, teams are preselected and the player never encounter random teams. Here are the different teams the player will fight against :

  • Cyclops and Ryu
  • Zangief and Juggernaut
  • Storm and Charlie
  • Dhalsim and Sabretooth
  • Rogue and Chun-Li
  • Bison and Magneto
  • Gambit and Ken
  • Wolverine and Cammy

Akuma is outside the teams as he is an hidden character (see 'Tips and Tricks' section). After defeating 6 of these teams, the player's team fights Apocalypse himself! In the end, the character who defeat Apocalypse remains under player control and the other one is the ultimate opponent for the one-on-one final battle.

Blanka (from "Street Fighter II - The World Warrior") can be seen hanging out within the background in the 'Death Valley' stage.

Clarence E. Leung holds the official official record for this game, on level 5-expert settong, with 2,098,100 points on 03/16/1999.

Updates

Akuma is called Gouki in the Japanese version. Akuma means 'devil'. Gouki means 'powerful oni' (An oni is a Japanese mythological creature, kind of like an ogre or demon).

US versions have the 'Recycle It, Don't Trash It!' screen.

Tips and tricks

Play As Akuma

At the character select screen, highlight Magneto or Juggernaut or Dhalsim or Bison and press Up.

Play As Alpha Chun Li

At the character select screen, highlight Chun Li, hold the Start button and press any action button.

Play As The Same Character

Enter the random selection code and if you can make it stop on the highlighted character, the highlight will remain there, enabling you to select the same character twice. This does some strange things to the life bars, so be careful. It may also screw up the palette for one of the characters on the selection grid, but this will not effect game play.

Alternate Costume Colours

Highlight a character at the character selection screen then press a Punch button for a darker costume or Kick for a lighter costume.

Random Fighter

At the character select screen, press and hold left or right for 3 seconds. Note : You can also fight against the same character by getting the random selection to stop on the originally highlighted fighter.

Continue Attacking

Press Start immediately after winning the match to continue hitting the defeated character.

Rogue's Additional Winning Pose

After you beat an opponent with Rogue, hold all three punches or kicks before she does her normal win pose (If done correctly, Rogue will turn around and say 'TA-DA!').

Ingame Tip Messages

These are all the tip messages that randomly appear when the player loses:

  • HP+HK simultaneously for the Cross-over Attack! You can switch your character at any time!
