According to Capcom, this spectator-based system is a tribute to the title's arcade roots, allowing online competitors to use a "virtual quarter" to "buy into" heated two player matches. “Quarters" are used to virtually represent players and pays homage to the arcade tradition of claiming the right to play the next game.

In addition to this voice chat support allows players to discuss the battle and even trash talk the current fighters.

Haha, I played this recently on the SNES. Great fun :D
