Released in February 1996 in Europe and in March 1996 in the US.

This game is known as Street Fighter Alpha 2 in the United States of America, Canada, and Europe, and as "Street Fighter Zero 2 [CP-S II No. 15]" in all other locations.

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

In Guy's stage you will see many familiar faces from "Final Fight". There's Mike and Jessica Haggar, Cody, Poison, Andorre and a few other bosses in the background - most of the "Final Fight" characters that have gone on to other games are there.

In Rose's battle location there are represented the 'gondole', the typical elements of another and more famous Italian sea-town, Venice. This is clearly wrong cultural knowledge by Capcom's programmers.

Here is a list of cameo in Ken's Yacht stage :

* Eliza (It's her birthday afterall!)

* Captain Commando & Sho

* Strider Hiryu (wielding a teddy bear!)

* Lynn Kurosawa (from Alien Vs Predator)

* Morrigan, Felicia, Lord Raptor & Hsien-Ko (these last two are pretty much alive in this cameo, unlike in the Darkstalkers & Vampire Savior games!) :)

* Michelle Heart (from "Legendary Wings" as another waitress!)

* A few thugs from Final Fight (working as waiters?!)

Dan Hibiki, the pink-clad Shotokan fighter, was an attempt by Capcom to make fun of SNK fighting games. Ryo Sakazaki was thought to be so much like Ryu that Capcom had to make a statement. Dan is mainly a hybrid of Ryo Sakazaki and Robert Garcia from the "Art of Fighting" series. This is most evident in his appearance in which he has Robert Garcia's trademark pony tail and Ryo Sakazaki's black undershirt. His animations were heavily tailored to look like a take on the aforemetioned characters. Dan's father was killed by Sagat (This is the man who Sagat hits with a Tiger Uppercut during the Ryu vs. Sagat intro in "Street Fighter Alpha 3"), so Dan developed his own style of fighting called 'Saikyo-ryuu', which is Japanese for 'strongest style', a poke at the "Art of Fighting" 'Kyokugen' karate style ('Kyokugen" is Japanese for 'extreme'). Fei Long makes a guest appearance in Dan's stage.

The sumo wrestler 'Fujinoyama' that Sodom challenges in his ending had so much of a resemblance to E. Honda that Capcom, for "Street Fighter Alpha 3", changed it to E. Honda.

The Australian prairie stage where Sagat fights Ryu is based on the opening scene of the animated 'Street Fighter II Movie', in which Ryu and Sagat fight in a prairie during a thunderstorm.

Victor Entertainment released a limited-edition soundtrack album for this game (Street Fighter Zero 2 : Capcom Game Soundtrack - VIZL-24) on 21/06/1996.


Here is the list of all versions in North America and Europe (where the game is known as "Street Fighter Alpha 2") :

* Alternate Sodom Stage : An alternate version of Sodom's stage appears every 4096 matches. The artwork on his truck is different. The Japanese text is replaced with English and the man on the side of the trailer is now wearing sunglasses. This alternate version of the stage is the one used in "Street Fighter Alpha 2 Gold".
