TRIVIA

Released in May 1999.

Twelve's name is incorrectly spelt 'Tweleve' on the opponent selection screen. The mistake then appears again when the screen scrolls to display the next opponent choice.

Shin Akuma is present in the game code. Shin Akuma in 3rd Strike differs somewhat from his 2nd Impact guise. For a start, in 2nd Impact Shin Akuma had his own audio samples. In 3rd Strike, he shares Akuma's soundfile. His second Super Art is somewhat glitchy at times, and unlike 2nd Impact, he seems to have only 2 outfits. The blue color outfit is for Player 1, and the white colour outfit for Player 2. Both are hardcoded.

This is also the first Street Fighter game to adopt a rap/hip hop urban theme.

UPDATES

VER. 990512
* Ken Vs. Makoto neutral throw bug : If Ken defeats Makoto with his neutral throw (i.e. knee bash), the game will reset.
* Chou Denji Storm graphical glitch : P2 Yang has 'Chou Denji Storm' listed as one of his Super Arts instead of 'Tenshin-Senkyutai'.
* Unblockables : Certain characters (Urien, Oro) have moves/combos which are impossible to block.

VER. 990608
* Ken Vs. Makoto neutral throw bug has been fixed and doesn't reset the game.
* Unblockables are no longer unblockable.

TIPS AND TRICKS

* 6 Costume Colors : Highlight a fighter at the character selection screen and press one of the 6 buttons for the standard outfits (button 1 aka LP is the original color).

* Secret Colour : Highlight a fighter at the character selection screen and press LP+MK+HP.

* Play Against Q : Get at least five super art finishes and you cannot lose any rounds. However, you can get the grade at least D or above, and at least two special points needed. If done correctly, Q will appear and you will fight him on the stage you fought in (Also now Q's theme is playing).
