DebugIcon.png This game has debugging material.
RegionIcon.png This game has regional differences.


This game marked the time in the series when the once seemingly impossible happened: Capcom moved on from making re-releases of Street Fighter II, finally!

It features new combat elements, Final Fight characters on the playable roster, and an intermediate story to SFI and SFII.

Character Test

SFA Character Test.png
To activate a character test menu, set FF8001 to 0A when in the test menu. Setting it during gameplay or attract mode can cause the game to lock up, blackout, or throw ADDRESS ERROR/ILLEGAL INSTRUCTION messages, similar to the messages appearing in Mega Man: The Power Battle.

SFA Disabled Debug.png
Setting the value to 06 instead (while in the test menu), or pressing both players' Start buttons, causes the game to lock up at the test menu's main mode. The other listed features are SCR2 and SCR3 BLOCK TEST, MESSAGE TEST, ATACK CHECK EX, and SCROLL TEST. They probably would have worked similarly to the ones in X-Men: Children of the Atom.

Regional Differences

Hmmm...
To do:
There's a lot more text differences between the Japanese version and other regions, translate them and compare.

Mode Select

Japan International
StreetFighterAlphaArcManualJP.png StreetFighterAlphaArcManualINT.png
• Manual operation
• Guards yourself

The Japanese version has a description for the Manual mode on the character select screen, like the Auto mode also does. On the international versions, the box is conspicuously empty instead.

Akuma/Gouki

Japan International
StreetFighterAlphaArcGouki.png StreetFighterAlphaArcAkuma.png

This game marks the first time that the demon-looking Ryu/Ken head swap character's name would be mentioned in-game (although it was also mentioned in other media after Super Street Fighter II Turbo). Gouki in Japan and Akuma elsewhere.

Win Quotes

Cacti speak Japanese.
...But what does it mean?
This game has text or audio that needs to be translated. If you are fluent with this language, please read our translation guidelines and then submit a translation!

Sodom

In the Japanese version, Sodom's quotes are the most unique in the cast because he speaks by saying some English words together and forming seemingly nonsensical sentences that sound like Japanese words. For international versions, the uniqueness of his dialogue was taken out and turned into normal quotes.

Here, Sodom's win quotes are structured by what he says, and in parenthesis is what he thinks he's saying.

Rival Dialogue

Sodom

  • Sodom went from being confident about winning in the Japanese version to having a violent bloodlust in international versions.
  • International versions make Sodom claim that Guy ruined his life, which is not mentioned in the Japanese version.
  • Guy became cocky in the international versions.
Japanese JP Translation English

ヘイ、ガーイ!
コノマエハ
ヨークモヤッテクレタナ。

お・・・・おぬしはあの時の!

1タイ1ノショウブデハ、
負ケハセヌゾ!
ワガヤボウノタメニモ!!

まだコリておらぬな・・・・。

Hey, Guy!
Previously, you really
done it didn’t you.

Y... you’re from that time’s!

For a 1 on 1 battle,
no allow to lose!
Even for the sake of my ambition!!

Still don’t learn by experience do you...

You ruined my
life! Time to
pay the price!

You again?

I'll make you
suffer!

You'll never
interfere with
me again!

Didn't I beat
you enough the
first time?

Spanish Portuguese

Me arruinaste
y tendrás que
pagaria cara.

¿Tú otra vez?

¡Vas a
sufrir!

No volverás a
interferir

paliza!

Voce me
arruinou. Hora
de pagar.

Você de novo?

Eu o farei
sofrer!

Você nunca
interferirá
novamente

Nao te bati
o suficiente
da outra vez?

Continue Screen

Hmmm...
To do:
Add the Continue screen's tips and translate them.
Japan International
StreetFighterAlphaArcContinueJP.png StreetFighterAlphaArcContinueINT.png

The Japanese version gives gameplay advice at the bottom of the Continue screen. As usual of Capcom, these tips were completely taken out in international versions.

Endings

Sodom

  • The script on the international versions added mention of a new Mad Gear headquarters being made, which the Japanese version doesn't mention at all.
  • Sodom's "EVERYBODY!" quote was changed to "Gentlemen!", which is somewhat unfortunate since Poison is one of the Mad Gear members shown to be present in the pictures.
  • The joke of Mad Gear's new name was lost in the international versions, simply being something the characters can't read. In the Japanese version, the joke was that Sodom spelled the name wrong and resulting in a completely different meaning.
Japanese JP Translation English

マッドギアの再生。

その夢に思いをたくし、昔の
仲問たちがソドムのもとへ集まる。

「EVERYBODY!」

「コレガアタラシイ
TEAM ノナマエダ!」

「魔奴義亜 (MADGEAR)!!」

世界にとどろかせることであった!

頼むから、やめてくれ!

Mad Gear’s rebirth.

Clear-sighted on belief for that dream, Sodom
gathers his comrades from previously before him.

"EVERYBODY!"

"This is new
TEAM’s name!"

"Demonic Slaves Honor Evil (MADGEAR)!!"

Sodom’s hope... with that, this name will
have made a roar out to the world!

For we beg you, stop it already!

Gameplay

  • Adon's Jaguar Varied Assault can't connect in the Japanese version after a punch or kick as the hit counter breaks after trying. This is not the case in the international versions.
(Source: Dark Noob on YouTube)
  • On the Dramatic Battle mode (Ryu/Ken vs Dictator), an instrumental version of "Itoshisa to Setsunasa to Kokoro Tsuyosa to" from Street Fighter II: The Animated Movie plays in the Japanese version, referencing the film's climax. On versions outside of Japan, it is simply replaced with Dictator's normal theme. The song can't be normally played from the sound test in any version and is also excluded from the console ports, including all regions of the CPS Changer version.
