One of the first console ports of the arcade game. Expansions from the original include new survival modes and the fan-favorite World Tour mode. Also known for inducting the remaining four fighters from the Street Fighter II sub-series, T. Hawk, Fei-Long, Deejay and Guile, in addition to Evil Ryu and Shin Akuma from the previous Street Fighter Alpha, meaning every playable character in the entire series up to this point (except for the original characters from the previously released EX and III games) was present. But more was to come six years later, following the release of the PSP...

PocketStation Mode

Menu Mode
OoOoOoOoO How do you work this thing?

Use the GameShark code 30194232 0005 to enable PocketStation mode in the US version. This feature is normally accessible only in the Japanese version, as the PocketStation was never released overseas.

Hmmm...
To do:
Test this with an actual PocketStation. Natch.

Alternate Karin Stage

You see sir, I had this thing called a... *gag* 'time share'!!

GameShark code 30198C78 0029 will let you play in a leftover version of Karin's stage from the Arcade version, which is simply a re-coloring of Sakura's.
