Street Fighter Alpha Anthology, the second compilation of the Street Fighter series for the PlayStation 2, compiles every Street Fighter Alpha installment in one package (plus Street Fighter Alpha 2 Gold), while also adding in some special surprizes... Yes, this compilation includes the super-deformed, kids-oriented Super Gem Fighter Mini Mix as a bonus game, and a special version of Street Fighter Alpha 3 called Hyper Street Fighter Alpha, where you can select any fighter from any version of the Alpha/Zero games to fight against any other, which can be unlocked and includes extra ISMs not found in the original version of Alpha 3.

In the main menu, the Japanese version uses the same illustrations that were used in the sales flyers promoting the original arcade versions, while the Western versions uses the art used for the American flyers. Since Alpha 2 Gold was never released for the arcades in the US, the cover artwork of Street Fighter Collection was used instead. The regional differences between the default games themselves are the same as they were in their original arcade ports.

The Japanese version, differs slightly in its content of games. Japanese versions feature each of the Street Fighter Alpha arcade games, with the Japanese arcade versions of Alpha 2 and Zero 2 Alpha as part of the default lineup. The US version of Street Fighter Alpha 2, as well as Street Fighter Zero 2 Dash (the Japanese version of Alpha 2 Gold) as secret "arranged" versions of Zero 2 and Zero 2 Alpha are featured in the Japanese version due to their additional characters (Evil Ryu in the US Alpha 2 and Cammy in Zero 2 Dash). In the North American and PAL versions, the default versions of Alpha 2 and Alpha 2 Gold are the same as their "arranged" counterparts in the Japanese version, and unlocking Hyper Alpha simply requires beating the five main games and Alpha 3 Upper.

The Japanese version of the game offers more arranged modes of play than the International version. Unlock conditions for the games are as follows;
