Evil Ryu, Akuma, Dan, and others… a lot was locked behind codes in the arcade era!
Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection — expected to arrive in a little more than a week, on May 29th — will include “arcade perfect” versions of virtually every Street Fighter main-line title ever made. This includes games like Street Fighter Alpha: Warrior’s Dreams and Street Fighter III: New Generation — titles that hid playable fighters behind codes à la Akuma in Super Street Fighter II Turbo.
In the video below, CCW|MRpeck324 looks at how to access these fighters in the Alpha and SFIII arcade titles. As the Anniversary Collection aims for authenticity, we can expect that these codes will carry straight over to their respective games — though we won’t know for certain until the game hits store shelves.
Characters that can be unlocked:
- Street Fighter Alpha: Warrior’s Dreams – M. Bison, Akuma, Dan
- Street Fighter Alpha 2 – Evil Ryu, Chun-Li (classic costume)
- Street Fighter III: New Generation – Yang
- Street Fighter III: 2nd Impact – Akuma
