Street Fighter III 3rd Strike: Fight for the Future (ストリートファイターⅢ サードストライク FIGHT FOR THE FUTURE?) is a 2D competitive fighting game produced by Capcom originally released for the arcade in 1999. It was ported to the Dreamcast, PlayStation 2, and Xbox. A downloadable online version titled Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike Online Edition was released on PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade in August 2011. It is the second follow-up to Street Fighter III, following Street Fighter III: 2nd Impact. Like its predecessors, it runs on the CP System III hardware. 3rd Strike increased the character roster by adding five new characters, including Chun-Li. It also added further refinements to the previous game's play mechanics and rules. Bringing the new generation of World Warriors to new consoles, Street Fighter III: Third Strike Online Edition takes one of the deepest, most sophisticated fighting games of all time online with an arcade perfect re-creation. Featuring the unique and memorable characters of the Street Fighter III series, GGPO-enabled online allows players to use their technical moves like the series-defining parry system in a seamless, arcade-like environment. High-quality, HD-filtered graphics emphasize the smooth animation, a vault of unlockables allow for replayability, and an integrated leaderboard combined with an extensive and viral replay sharing system encourage players to bring their A-game.
