- TRIVIA -


This game is known in US as "Street Fighter Alpha 2".


Guy, Rolento and Sodom are from Capcom's "Final Fight". Guy as selectable character, Sodom as the second boss and Rolento as the fourth boss in "Final Fight". Guy's and Rolento's music are taken from "Final Fight".

In Guy's stage you will see many familiar faces from "Final Fight". There's Mike and Jessica Haggar, Cody, Poison, Andorre and a few other bosses in the background - most of the "Final Fight" characters that have gone on to other games are there.


Here is a list of cameo in Ken's Yacht stage :

* Eliza (It's her birthday afterall!)

* "Captain Commando" & Sho

* "Strider Hiryu" (wielding a teddy bear!)

* Lynn Kurosawa (from Alien Vs Predator)

* Morrigan, Felicia, Zabel Zarock, and Lei Lei (these last two are pretty much alive in this cameo, unlike in the Vampire & Vampire Savior games!) :)

* Michelle Heart (from "Legendary Wings" as another waitress!)

* A few thugs from "Final Fight" (working as waiters?!!!)


Dan Hibiki, the pink-clad Shotokan fighter, was an attempt by Capcom to make fun of SNK fighting games. Ryo Sakazaki was thought to be so much like Ryu that Capcom had to make a statement. Dan is mainly a hybrid of Ryo Sakazaki and Robert Garcia from the "Art of Fighting" series. This is most evident in his appearance in which he has Robert Garcia's trademark pony tail and Ryo Sakazaki's black undershirt. His animations were heavily tailored to look like a take on the aforemetioned characters. Dan's father was killed by Sagat (This is the man who Sagat hits with a Tiger Uppercut during the Ryu vs. Sagat intro in "Street Fighter Zero 3"), so Dan developed his own style of fighting called 'Saikyo-ryuu', which is Japanese for 'strongest style', a poke at the "Art of Fighting" 'Kyokugen' karate style ('Kyokugen' is Japanese for 'extreme'). Fei Long makes a guest appearance in Dan's stage.


The sumo wrestler 'Fujinoyama' that Sodom challenges in his ending had so much of a resemblance to E. Honda that Capcom, for "Street Fighter Zero 3", changed it to E. Honda.


The Australian prairie stage where Sagat fights Ryu is based on the opening scene of the animated 'Street Fighter II Movie', in which Ryu and Sagat fight in a prairie during a thunderstorm.


Victor Entertainment released a limited-edition soundtrack album for this game (Street Fighter Zero 2 : Capcom Game Soundtrack - VIZL-24) on 21/06/1996.


- UPDATES -


In the Japanese version, specific locations are displayed on the 'next stage' screen. The American version just tells you which country the stage is in. Perhaps someone at Capcom USA was too lazy to translate the location-specific text (which is in Japanese) and just used the country name (which is in English). Below are the place names that were left out of the American version, translated into English...

(Character : Stage location)

Ryu : Suzaku Castle, Japan

(Sagat vs.) Ryu : a big prairie, Australia

Ken : San Francisco Bay, USA

Chun-Li : Beijing, China

Sagat : Ayuthaya Temple Ruins, Thailand

Adon : Bank of the Chao Phraya River, Thailand

Birdie : London Station Underground, England

Nash : Detroit Highway, USA

Guy : Metro City, USA

Rose : Genova City Port, Italy

Sodom : Arizona Desert, USA

Vega : Atop the VTOL, Brazil

(Nash vs.) Vega : Guiana Highlands - Great Waterfalls, Venezuela

Gouki : Gokuentou , Japan

Dan : Temple Street, Hong Kong

Dhalsim : Bank of the Ganges River, India

Zangief : Bilsk Steelworks, USSR

Gen : Shanghai, China

Rolento : New York, USA

Sakura : Setagaya-ku, 2-Choume, Tokyo, Japan


An upgraded version of the game called "Street Fighter Zero 2 Alpha" was released exclusively in Japanese in 1996 a little bit later after the first release of "Street Fighter Zero 2". It included some enhancements like new moves, a unique variation of Sakura, the survival mode, the dramatic battle and the player was able to fight with Zangief, Dhalsim and Satsui no Hadou Mezameta Ryu.


- TIPS AND TRICKS -


* Alternate Costume Colors : Highlight a fighter at the character selection screen and press punch or kick for the 2 standard outfits (punch is the original color). For 2 alternative outfits press 2 punch or 2 kick buttons together.


* Alternate Chun-Li Costumes : Hold Start and highlight Chun-Li at the character selection screen. After five seconds, press LP, MP, or HP for a blue costume (without trousers); press LP+MP+HP for a pink costume.


* Play as Satsui no Hadou ni Mezameta Ryu (translates as 'Ryu in which the surge of the intent to kill has awakened') : Highlight Ryu at the character selection screen, then press Start for 1 second. Then highlight Adon, Gouki, Adon, then return to Ryu. Then hold Start for 1 second, while holding start press any attack button.


* Grass Stage : Select two player mode. Hold Start at the character selection screen, then highlight Sagat for five seconds. Then highlight any character, release Start and press any attack button.


* Waterfall Stage : Select two player mode. Hold Start at the character selection screen, then highlight Vega for five seconds. Then highlight any character, release Start and press any attack button.


* Sari in Every Stage : In Dhalsim's stage you may have noticed a girl who cheers for him. That is Sari, his wife. When you play as Dhalsim, its possible to make her appear on every fight by holding down LP+HK before the fight starts (You must do this at the begining of every round).


* Alternate Sodom Stage : An alternate version of Sodom's stage appears every 4096 matches. The artwork on his truck is different. The Japanese text is replaced with English and the man on the side of the trailer is now wearing sunglasses. This alternate version of the stage is the one used in Street Fighter Zero 2 Alpha.


* Fight against Shin Gouki : It only works with the characters first color (means the original color). Fight through the Game without loosing a single round. Get at least 3 perfect wins and 3 super special finishes. Shin Gouki appears as your last boss now.
