Unlike the main characters, Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike’s mysterious Rorschach-esque fighter never got the 3D treatment.
Hold onto your potatoes. Earlier today, a fan asked Lupe about EVO:
Things get pretty freaky when you switch up the movesets and animations available to your favorite Street Fighter character.
Street Fighter V won’t have an in-depth story mode when it launches on February 16, but Capcom’s announced a “cinematic expansion” coming next June for free. It’ll apparently go “deep” into the series’ mythology, taking place between the events of Street Fighter IV and Street Fighter III.
You won’t be able to see whether Darth Vader’s lightsaber can deflect a hadouken or witness the power of Chun Li belting the snot out of Han Solo, but it’s a cool twist on Jedi Knight that should at the very least help rectify the memory of that trashy Star Wars beat-em-up from the 1990’s.
Don’t think of how VR headsets could change the way esport games are played, but rather, imagine how they could change they’re viewed—in particular, fighting games. Capcom’s Yoshinori Ono explains how.
Street Fighter is a game of precise input and output—a delicate tightrope walk of fistic physicality. Hacked together Steam controller motion controls? Maybe not the best idea. And yet...
While it doesn’t feel like Tekken X Street Fighter is coming any time soon, fighting fans will be getting a little Akuma-flavored taste of those two worlds colliding again in Tekken 7’s upcoming “Fated Retribution” arcade update.
Last month, observant fans noticed that some changes had been made to Street Fighter V character R. Mika. Namely, that her ass-smacking celebration—first shown off in August—had since been toned down to keep the slapping out of view.
Using the power of math and science, Vsauce determined that an average-sized fist performing a Rising Dragon Fist would apply enough force to decapitate a normal human being. Then they built a dummy to test their work.
Daigo Umehara did not win the 2015 Capcom Cup. That’s okay. He did won the hearts of fighting game fans once again with another spectacular comeback.
The 2015 Capcom Cup Ultra Street Fighter IV tournament is taking place today at Sony’s PlayStation Experience event, with 32 of the best players in the world battling for their piece of a $250,000 prize pool. Watch it live right here!
Pretty neat Street Fighter fan-art. Both Cammy and Chun-Li look like illustrations, but these are actually paper sculptures made by Belinda Rodriguez. Reminds me of the art style in Samurai Jack.
Oh, plus sumo wrestling. But since E. Honda is already a Street Fighter character, that’s not as unusual as hadokening from a moving horse.
So, that definitive Street Fighter soundtrack we wrote about a few weeks ago is now out. I’ve been listening to it all weekend, and it’s fantastic.
It’s not the sweet-as-pie recreations themselves that get me. It’s the thought of how much practice must have gone into a video like this. The hours, days, weeks spent leaping and thrusting and combing his hair just to get it this right.
The Street Fighter version of the Ronda Rousey/Holly Holm fight isn’t quite as bloody as the real thing. Still really quick, though.
Darryl Lewis didn’t know what to expect when he first entered into the Super Street Fighter 2 competition at EVO in 2010. It was (and still is) the world’s largest fighting game tournament, and Lewis, who was 21, had only ever played in one other tournament.
