TIPS AND TRICKS

• Slow motion replay : Hold Punch + Kick + Dodge immediately after winning a round. This may only be done once per game.

• Replay taunt : Hold Punch, Kick, or Dodge during a replay. Another taunt is available if a round is won in less than ten seconds.

• View credits : Hold Start during demo mode.

• Alternate music : Hold Start in the brief pause before the first match of each round. Player one and two's Start butting brings up different music.

• Alternate costumes : Hold Up while choosing a fighter at the character selection screen.

• Hint : View Kage unmasked : Fight as Kage and win twenty consecutive matches. From now on, Kage's mask will fall off when he is knocked down.

• Hint : Bird in Jacky's stage : Hold all buttons and both joysticks down during Jacky's mountain stage to bring a bird that will appear in the background. It will fly over the fighter that loses the match.

• Hint : Shake high score screen : Play as Akira and get to the high score screen. Enter you initials, but do not select "End". Move Akira back as far as possible, then execute any special move.
