    Players can stretch themselves beyond the matches with hundreds of different online and offline challenges that are updated in real time on the side of the screen. These can be completed to earn Vault Points that are redeemable for a wide array of content ranging from fan art to original in-game movies. Players can also earn Vault Points in trials mode, which helps new players learn more about Street Fighter III: Third Strike Online Edition techniques such as parrying, while allowing experienced players to hone their skills.
