Seven Things You Might Not Know About Street Fighter

Now that we know who the final character in the upcoming Ultra Street Fighter IV is, it seems like a great time to look back on the franchise. Since the franchise is almost 27 years old (!), there's a ton of trivia to reminisce about.


This video by DYKGaming is jam packed with all sorts of fun facts you might not know about Street Fighter, like:

  • Stuff about the original Street Fighter's creators
  • Who the cast is influenced by/based on
  • Why Balrog, M. Bison and Vega have different names outside of the US (and what players call them to avoid confusion)
  • How the special combo system in Street Fighter was originally a bug
  • What features got taken out from early games
  • What characters never made it into the franchise
  • What the cast looked like in early designs

And more. While I knew about half of these facts already, it was surprising to look at how different some of the characters looked like at a conceptual stage. You might learn something new, too. Or, if you'd like to learn more about other franchises, make sure to check out the Did You Know Gaming website.

I'm so glad beast man was reconsidered. I'm sure it was unintentional but it could have seemed incredibly racist lol. But we all know japan has a long history of being unintentionally racist.
