Street Fighter III: 2nd Impact
The storyline in 2nd Impact is considered a retcon which overwrites the events of Street Fighter III: New Generation. A third World Warrior Tournament is held throughout the globe, but new faces appear as it has been years since the last Second World Warrior Tournament. Though many fight with their own motives and ends, word has spread urban rumors of an illusive secret society since the fall of Shadaloo, and some seek to investigate its legitimacy, to which all evidence points to the Third World Warrior Tournament.
2nd Impact brought back all the characters from the first game and introduced two new ones: Hugo and Urien. Yang, who was an alternate version of Yun in the first game, became his own character with his own set of special moves and super arts. Akuma also returned as a secret computer-controlled challenger and selectable character. Thus the playable character roster increased to 14. In addition to the regular Akuma, a non-playable computer-controlled version named “Shin Akuma” also appears in the single-player mode.
