Released in June 1995.

This game is known as "Street Fighter Zero [CP-S II No. 11]" in Mexico, Central America, South America, southeast Asia, and Japan, and as Street Fighter Alpha - Warrior's Dreams [CP-S II No. 11] in the US, Canada, and Europe.

The Street Fighter Alpha series of games take place between the original "Street Fighter" and "Street Fighter II - The World Warrior". The scar on Sagat's chest in SFII is said to be from Ryu's Shouryuuken during the final battle in the original "Street Fighter". In 'SF Alpha', Sagat has the scar on his chest, so it must take place after the first "Street Fighter". The character Charlie was mentioned in Guile's ending in "Street Fighter II - The World Warrior". He is a friend of Guile who was killed by M. Bison. Since Charlie is still alive in the Alpha series, it must take place before "Street Fighter II - The World Warrior".

This is the first Street Fighter game to have the Dramatic Battle Mode, a feature no doubt inspired by the Japanese animated movie, 'Street Fighter II', where Ken and Ryu team up to fight M. Bison in the final battle.

This game marks the first time Akuma's name is displayed on-screen in the game.

Ryu / Guy stages :

The "Son Son" convenience store in Ryu and Guy's stages is named after an earlier Capcom game of the same name.

A poster for the animated feature film version of 'Street Fighter II' can be seen on display.

The kanji on the small sign on the bath-house means 'Honda Bath'.

The curtain on the bath-house (in Guy's version of the stage) says 'yu' in hiragana, which is the reading for the 'bath' kanji on the 'Honda Bath' sign.

In "Street Fighter Alpha 3", Edmond Honda's stage is in front of this (or a similar-looking) bath-house with slightly different signs on it.

In "Street Fighter II - The World Warrior" (and all its follow-ups), Honda's stage is inside of a bath house.

Guy and Sodom are from Capcom's "Final Fight". Guy as selectable character and Sodom as the second boss in "Final Fight". Guy's music is taken from "Final Fight".

Sodom is a westerner who is obsessed with Japanese culture and apparently doesn't speak Japanese very well. In the Japanese versions of these games, Sodom's victory quotes are meaningless sentences composed of English words (e.g., 'SHOW BY HUNG JAW') followed by a Japanese translation of what he actually meant to say. In Sodom's ending, he claims about reforming and renaming the Mad Gear gang into something with four kanji. Those kanji read 'Ma-do-gi-a'. Now this could just be random kanji that, when strung together, sound like 'Mad Gear', but by the same token, it can sound like 'Mad Doggie'. The jitte weapons Sodom uses were used by policemen in feudal Japan.

Change of Race : In the original "Street Fighter", Birdie looked Caucasian. In SF Alpha, Birdie is black. The reason for this change is explained in one of Birdie's "Street Fighter Alpha 3" win quotes (he was sick at the time of the first "Street Fighter").

Sony Music Entertainment released a limited-edition soundtrack album for this game (Street Fighter Zero Arcade Game Track - SRCL-3297) on 21/08/1995.
