9 other character come from several Street Fighter games :

Akuma ('Gouki' in Japan) - "Super Street Fighter II X - Grand Master Challenge" in Japan; "Super Street Fighter II Turbo" in all other regions

Chun-Li - "Street Fighter II - The World Warrior"

Dan Hibiki - "Street Fighter Alpha - Warriors' Dreams" in North America and Europe; "Street Fighter Zero" in Japan, Southeast Asia, Brazil, and Hispanic regions

Dhalsim - "Street Fighter II - The World Warrior"

Ken Masters - "Street Fighter"

Major Bison ('Vega' in Japan) - "Street Fighter II - The World Warrior"

Ryu - "Street Fighter"

Sakura Kasugano - "Street Fighter Alpha 2" in the United States, Canada, and Europe; "Street Fighter Zero 2" in Japan, Southeast Asia, Brazil, Oceania, and Hispanic regions

Zangief - "Street Fighter II - The World Warrior"

Charlie, Gambit, Rogue, and Rose appear in the background in the 'Showdown in the Park' stage.

Blanka (of "Street Fighter" fame) can be seen within the background in the 'Death Valley' stage.

Dan's ending is an obvious parody of the ending of the SNK game, "Art of Fighting".

Sunburned (or Evil) Sakura has two separate endings (Japanese version): Kei chases Gouki and Sunburned Sakura after they teleport away

1) Across the entire screen from right to left.

2) Across half the screen before she trips, falls, and falls asleep.

There are several cameos of Mega Man in this game:

1) In the mall stage, there's a cameo of a Mega Man cut-out (perhaps someone in a Mega Man suit). And in relation to Capcom celebrating Mega Man's "10th Anniversary" in 1997, they put a banner saying '10th Anniversary: Mega Man'.

2) In one of Norimaro's super combos in the Japanese version, he does a cosplay of Mega Man.

There is one rumored reason why Iron Man was not in this game. It is because Acclaim made an Iron Man game called "Iron Man and X-O Manowar in Heavy Metal" which was released for several consoles.

Firstsmile released a limited-edition soundtrack album for this game (Marvel Super Heroes Vs. Street Fighter Original Soundtrack & Arrange - FSCA-10017) on 19/09/1997.


Here is the list of all the versions:


* ASIA release.




* JAPAN release


* JAPAN release


* US and BRAZIL releases


The Japanese version features an extra playable character (his character slot on the character select screen is replaced by the MSH vs. SF logo on all non-Japanese versions), Norimaro, a silly otaku (Japanese geek specializing in anime and manga) who is a huge Chun-Li fanboy as evidence by his reaction in seeing her before the match begins. While his true intentions of entering the competition is unknown, we can assume that it was to take pictures of Chun-Li and the many superheroes. He is voiced by the comedian Kinashi Noritake and created by Capcom as being a joke character like Dan (modeled after a Japanese comedian Noritake Kinashi). He was originally going to appear in non-Japanese versions of the game, but due to cultural differences and a reference to stealing Chun-Li's panties in his ending, he was cut out. However, his programming still exists in the ROM and he even has English dialogs in the game. He even has an ending with pictures, but his ending dialogs was cut out.

The US versions have the "Recycle It, Don't Trash It!" screen.
