Street Fighter III 2nd Impact: Giant Attack is the 2nd game in the Street Fighter III series. Somewhat notable for introducing EX specials, Hugo, and Urien to the Street Fighter series.

Unused Sounds

Akuma saying "Gouzanku!", the name of his air fireball special.

Unused female fighter sounds of unknown usage. These are likely placeholder voices for Chun-Li, who would make her first appearance in the Street Fighter 3 series with Third Strike.

However, they are more likely to belong to Makoto, who was initially planned to be in Second Impact but was cut very late in development. She was eventually added in Third Strike. The fact that the samples sound more karate-like than previous voice samples of Chun Li's supports this.

The previous game's subtitle which remains as a leftover sound file. It goes unused in 2nd Impact because of the new subtitle.

Regional Differences

The U.S. release features some censorship of blood for American audiences, as was typically the case for Capcom fighting games making their way to the west.

When Akuma loses a match in the Japanese version, red blood can be seen on the win quote screen after the fight. In the American release, Akuma's blood was changed to green.

When losing a match by time-out in the Japanese release, blood squirts out of Urien's body. The blood has been completely removed from the American release.
