Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike (ストリートファイターIII サードストライク), alternatively spelled Street Fighter III: Third Strike, is a one-on-one fighting game released for the arcades by Capcom in 1999. It was the third instalment of the Street Fighter III sub-series and ran on the same CP System III arcade board as the first two entries. In 2000, Capcom released a stand-alone port of 3rd Strike for the Sega Dreamcast, following up on their compilation of the first two games titled Street Fighter III: Double Impact. For a while this was the only home version of 3rd Strike available to consumers, although it was later ported to the PlayStation 2 and the original Xbox a few years later.

Gameplay

3rd Strike was the third and final release in the Street Fighter III series. All characters got new moves and the behaviors of existing moves were modified (reach, strength, speed etc.). Throws, Overhead Attacks and Personal Actions (Taunts) are now activated by pressing two buttons simultaneously. The series unique parry maneuver can now also be performed while guarding, which results in a red flashing effect. The resulting maneuver is called a red parry.

Characters

New and returning characters joined the cast:

  • Chun Li
  • Twelve
  • Makoto
  • Q
  • Remy

Versions

The Dreamcast port adds a "System Direction" mode, a special options menu that allows users to customize numerous aspects of how the game works. The feature would be carried over to the later PlayStation 2 and Xbox versions of the game, as well as 3rd Strike Online Edition on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Aside from that, this port has a remixed soundtrack and the final boss Gill was made playable (same as Double Impact).

The PAL version supports 50Hz and 60Hz modes.
