TIPS AND TRICKS

• Two vs. One Battle : Hold LK+MK+HK and press Start at the start screen.

• Fight Your Mid Boss : Win five rounds with a Super finish or Custom Combo finish, and don't lose a round before the sixth match.

• Fight Shin Akuma : Hold MK+MP and press Start at the start screen.

• Survival Battle : Hold LP+MP+HP and press Start at the start screen.

• SFII' Versions Of Ryu, Ken, Sagat, M. Bison, Dhalsim, Zangief : Highlight the character and press Start.

• Evil Ryu : Highlight Ryu and press Start twice.

• SFII Costume Chun Li, SFII' Chun Li : Highlight Chun Li and press Start once for SFII costume Chun Li, twice for SFII' Chun Li.

• Choose A Win Pose : Hold Start + any attack button after winning a round to determine your win pose.

• Alternate Colors For Sakura : Highlight Sakura and press Start(x5).

• Stage Select : Can only be done when a second player enters the game, therefore the message "Here Comes A New Challenger!!" must appear before returning to the select screen. On the select screen, highlight a character icon and hold Start for 2 seconds. Then choose your fighter. If you want the grassy Australia stage (the tall grass), hold Start on Sagat's icon for 2 seconds then select your character (do not let go of Start). To select the Venezuela stage (the waterfall), do the same steps you would do to select Australia, except hold Start on Charlie's icon instead of Sagat's.
