TRIVIA

Street Fighter Zero 3 Upper was released in January 2001.

An aurally and graphically reduced port of "Street Fighter Zero 3 Upper" was made for the Nintendo Game Boy Advance in 2001 with Eagle (from the original "Street Fighter"), Yun (from "Street Fighter III"), and Maki (from "Final Fight 2") added as unlockable characters to the game. In 2006, a faithful port of "Street Fighter Zero 3 Upper" was made for the Sony PlayStation Portable with the addition of Eagle, Yun, and Maki immediately playable without having to be unlocked. Also, a new character was added to this version: Ingrid from "Capcom Fighting Jam." This upgraded port was named "Street Fighter Zero 3 Double Upper" in Japan and "Street Fighter Alpha 3 MAX" outside Japan. This brings the total playable characters to 38.
