  • The character color layout changes for most characters: C button and Z button will give you new colors.
  • There are now more turbo speeds (up to 8 stars), and if you can even choose two negative speeds (denoted as diamonds).

Beat the game without having your or your partner die, and you get a new option in the Options Menu:

  • When activated, your Hyper Combo Gauge automatically refills when it is used, allowing for near-infinite use of attacks that cost super meter power. Note that this effects both characters, and the computer will take advantage of this sometimes.

Quick Rematch (Sega Saturn)[edit]

After losing a match either against a friend or the CPU, the loser can restart the same match by pressing or holding the L button or R button button when the winner's quote screen starts to apear. You'll know if it worked because you'll hear a sound cue.

If you choose Original mode, then you will be able to switch characters during a match.

For example, if you choose Ryu and Ken, then your opponent must choose Ken and Ryu and you will be able to switch characters during a fight.

Play as Apocalypse (PlayStation)[edit]

To play as Apocalypse, complete the game at a difficulty of at least five stars. Then select versus mode. At the character selection screen, highlight Akuma and hold Select button for five seconds before pushing any punch button.

Dan's secret intro and finish[edit]

To see Dan slam into the floor in an explosion, make sure that he's the first up to fight, and hold Arcade-Button-LPunch.png prior to the battle starting. Dan also has a special finish; if he kills a person with his Premium Sign attack (even if they're killed by block damage), you'll get the black finish usually reserved for Hyper Combos. Note that this only works if they're hit by the _thrown_ autograph, not if they're killed while Dan is holding his autograph.

Fight Secret Characters[edit]

To fight a special team consisting of one hidden character and either Akuma or M. Bison, fulfill the following requirements before Stage 6:

Team Method
Mech Zangief & M. Bison
  • No continues
  • Don't let yourself or your ally die

  • Get Hyper Combo Finishes on all other rounds
Sunburned Sakura & Akuma

Play as Norimaro (Japanese version only)[edit]

Norimaro will show on the character select screen (bottom middle square) if the machine is set to Freeplay or 1 coin X credit. A setting of 2 coins or above and you will only see the Marvel Super Heroes Vs. Street Fighter logo in his square. To use Norimaro's quadruple jump, hold down Arcade-Button-LPunch.png+Arcade-Button-MPunch.png+Arcade-Button-LKick.png before the battle begins. Once it has begun, Norimaro can now jump 4 times in a row (just like Chun-Li's triple jump or Cyclops' double jump). If you want to keep using this trick, you have to do it between every stage. His quadruple jump is a little different from most people with mid-air jumps in that you have to wait a moment between the 3rd and 4th jumps.
