Street Fighter Alpha Anthology: A Nostalgic Trip Through Street Fighter History

Released in 2006, Street Fighter Alpha Anthology is a compilation of the Street Fighter Alpha series, along with a remixed version of the console-exclusive Street Fighter Alpha 2 Gold and Super Gem Fighter Mini Mix. The original Street Fighter Alpha, Alpha 2, Alpha 3 and Super Gem Fighter Mini Mix are ported from their original arcade releases, while Alpha 2 Gold is a remixed version that combines elements from the previous console version and the Japanese arcade release Street Fighter Zero 2 Alpha. Two secret games are also included in this compilation.


The Street Fighter Alpha series is known for its fast-paced and combo-heavy gameplay. Alpha Anthology retains this gameplay style, making it a great choice for fans of classic fighting games. The controls are simple and easy to learn, but the game has a high skill ceiling, making it a rewarding experience for both casual and hardcore players.

One of the unique features of the Alpha series is the Alpha Counter system. This system allows players to cancel certain moves into other moves, creating devastating combos. The Alpha Counter system adds a lot of depth to the gameplay and makes it possible to pull off some truly amazing combos.


Street Fighter Alpha Anthology features a roster of 29 characters, including all of the characters from the original Alpha series, as well as several new characters. The new characters include Ingrid, a mysterious woman with pyrokinetic powers, and Evil Ryu, a corrupted version of Ryu.

Each character has their own unique playstyle and abilities, making it important to experiment with different characters to find one that suits your playstyle.

Graphics and Sound

Street Fighter Alpha Anthology uses 2D sprites for its graphics. The sprites are beautifully drawn and animated, and they capture the look and feel of the original arcade games. The game’s soundtrack is also excellent, with catchy tunes that will get you pumped up for battle.


Street Fighter Alpha Anthology is a must-have for fans of the Street Fighter series. It’s a great way to experience the classic Alpha games and Super Gem Fighter Mini Mix in one package. The game’s fast-paced gameplay, diverse roster of characters, and beautiful graphics make it a timeless classic.
