Street Fighter III: New Generation (USA, 970204)

Street Fighter III - New Generation (c) 02/1997 Capcom.

A New Generation of Street Fighters! Features larger characters sprites than previous Street Fighter games with the smoothest, most detailed 2D animation ever made at the time of its release, a level of quality that is yet to be matched by any other 2D game outside of the Street Fighter III series as of 2004; some complain that too many things are animated and each animation contains too many frames, slowing down the pace of the game.

According to Capcom's flyer for this game, this game has character animations that are animated at 64 frames per second at the maximum.

The marquee simply refers to this game as 'Three'.

Sean was originally supposed to be the only Ansatsuken fighter in the game, Ken and Ryu were added in later by the demand of SF fans.

The enigmatic hoax character Shen Long was revived in Street Fighter III after an issue of EGM that gave an incomplete strategy describing how to face him, and some doctored screen-shots that show Shen Long as an altered Ken or Ryu character model firing multiple hadou waves.
