Street Fighter Alpha

Four years after the massively popular Street Fighter II (SFII) hit arcades, Capcom released a new series of fighting games called Street Fighter Alpha (SFA), set years before the events of its predecessor.

A few weeks back, I wrote about the many mysteries surrounding all versions of Street Fighter II, and as I suspected, Alpha is riddled with new oddities and madness.

I’ve narrowed the list of peculiar plot twists, weird background activity, and general nuttiness to 15. If you have theories that could explain these mysteries, please share them on the comments section below.
