The year 1995 marks a turning point in the series with Street Fighter Alpha: Warriors' Dreams (in Japanese: Street Fighter Zero). Innovation is mostly visual. The graphics of Street Fighter II were more or less realistic, the characters and the scenery of the series Alpha slicing with a style very close to the manga. We note in this opus the appearance of characters coming from another game of Capcom: Final Fight. There are also some characters from the first Street Fighter Anime Nederland
The following year, fans of fighting games are entitled to Street Fighter Alpha 2 which is a huge success. The game innovates in particular with the level of combat techniques with a new management of the combos. It will also be adapted on Super Nintendo, despite the obsolescence of the console.
The Street Fighter Alpha series ends with Street Fighter Alpha 3. All the elements that made the success of the previous games are present: a varied choice of characters (including the 16 characters of Super Street Fighter II in the console versions, in addition to Characters from the Alpha series), an equally rich gaming system with different modes; But the fans reproach him the disappearance of the remixed themes of the previous opus, as well as the change in the manipulations to make to make the projections and the Alpha Counters. The management of the combos is further refined, with possibilities of judges much more extensive.
In 1997, the series hit the streets of Street Fighter III: New Generation and its two suites: Street Fighter III: 2nd Impact - Giant Attack and Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike - Fight for the Future. All three were released on Dreamcast in 1999: the first two in a compilation named Street Fighter III: Double Impact and the third separately under his own name LovePlus Kostuums
The game remains very played despite the release of Street Fighter IV for precisely this technicality that gives depth never seen in a fighting game, and the tournaments on it remain frequent around the world. The enthusiasm was therefore delayed, as long as the purists are doing to the idea of the revival of the series.
In 2008, Capcom released Street Fighter IV on an arcade, then in 2009 on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 consoles, as well as on PC Lucky Dog1 Kostuums
