The Japanese version of "Street Fighter III: Double Impact" (see entry 1318), a compilation of the first two Street Fighter III games. In Japan, the second is called "Street Fighter III: Giant Attack" (In the States it is "Street Fighter III: 2nd Impact" or sometimes "Street Fighter III: 2nd Impact - Giant Attack."

Hah well I was wrong--on the game case it only refers to the second game as "Giant Attack," but "2nd Impact: Giant Attack" is right there on its title screen. : P

I guess the "W Impact" name for the collection in Japan was a PUN on "Double Impact," whereas in the States they didn't think that pun would fly.

No Flycast true widescreen mode like the arcade (MAME) version, though.
