The most powerful Street Fighter can only be matched by Ingrid from Fighting Evolution - Capcom UK shares top 5 strongest characters in the franchise

The Street Fighter franchise is known for having some truly powerful fighters among its ranks. Characters can shoot plasma from their palms, deliver bone-shattering attacks, soar into the sky with spinning kicks, and much more. It's safe to say that the average human isn't capable of such feats and Street Fighter's world warriors are incredibly strong beings. But which characters are the strongest?

Capcom UK has released a video that lists the top 5 candidates in order of strength, based on their backstories and their attributes.

We all know that Akuma is one of the strongest characters in the franchise, but the other four characters listed here are quite interesting. Capcom Europe's Matt Edwards, the company rep presenting this video, mentions that the only character who may have a chance at challenging the strongest on this list is Ingrid from Capcom Fighting Evolution.

Below you will find out which characters Capcom feels are the absolute most powerful in the franchise. Check out the video list below and let us know what you think in the comments below!

Official SF2 'Dhalsim curry' released in Japan - reports say it's extremely spicy, and the box art is pretty hot too!

Japan often gets awesome Street Fighter (and other fighting game) themed merchandise that is only ever available in the land of the rising sun. Just last month we saw a batch of Street Fighter wallets, underwear, and tablet cases that we wish we could get our hands on here in the states.

Well, it looks like the cool products keep rolling out as an official Street Fighter 2 themed curry featuring Dhalsim was recently released in Japan. Simply deemed "Dhalsim curry," this spicy side-dish was being offered by online retailer Geek Store Life, but has since sold out.

A five-pack runs for 2,700 yen ($26 USD). Although this is quite the asking price for curry, as Japanese curry typically runs you about a buck, it's may be worth the money solely based on the wicked box art.

Who is the best ranked character across all Street Fighter games? Find out which champions reign supreme in USF4, SF3 3S, SSFT2/HDR

Last month we determined which characters ranked as the worst in each of the main Street Fighter games: Ultra Street Fighter 4, Street Fighter 3 Third Strike, Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo HD Remix, and Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo. Not only that, but we also took a look at who was the absolute worst character throughout each of the four titles. Tonight, however, we're revealing who is the best of the best.

Using the tiers section right here on EventHubs, we determined not only who the best character in each Street Fighter game is, but also figured out which character is the absolute best spanning across the aforementioned Street Fighter titles by comparing their tier score average.

In order to calculate this average score we simply took the raw tier score for each character and divided that by the number of characters on their respective game's roster.

Below you will find a list of the four best characters, with both raw tier score / average tier score, and a few statistics showing how much these characters are used.

Street Fighter Bishoujo Chun-Li looks prettier in pink - Kotobukiya to launch 'Pink Costume' limited edition of the 25cm figure

Toy and model maker Kotobukiya is releasing a new limited edition version of their highly popular Street Fighter Bishoujo Chun-Li 25cm figure this November in Japan.

The limited edition figure is in all ways identical to the Bishoujo Chun-Li figure that was released back in January, much to popular acclaim (the figures sold out fairly quickly, and Kotobukiya even decided to issue a second batch), save for one difference: its color scheme.

Decked in a pink Chinese traditional dress, this new figure follows after the 2P color scheme for Chun-Li as seen in Street Fighter 2 -- and the pink color which really brings out the blushing Bishoujo ("beautiful young girl" in Japanese) qualities of the character.

See for yourself in the images of the figure below.

Who is the worst ranked character across all Street Fighter games? Find out which warriors are at rock bottom in USF4, SF3 3S, SSFT2/HDR

When it comes to fighting games, often times the most highly debated topic you will ever encounter is: who are the best characters in the game? We've seen countless tier lists and top 10s from a multitude of players expressing who they feel are the best of the best. Today, however, we're taking a look at something a bit different...

Using the tiers section right here on EventHubs, we determined not only who the worst character in each Street Fighter game is, (Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo / HD Remix, Street Fighter 3 Third Strike, and Ultra Street Fighter 4), but also figured out which character is the absolute worst spanning across the aforementioned Street Fighter titles -- by comparing their tier score average.

In order to calculate this average score we simply took the raw tier score for each character and divided that by the number of characters on their respective game's roster.

Below you will find a list of the four worst characters, with both raw tier score / average tier score, and a few statistics showing how much these characters are used.

Ono: Capcom fighting games revival project was developed internally by old-timers; SSF2T initially picked instead of Hyper SF2

After finding out about Capcom's announcement of a fighting games revival project that would see four classic fighters redistributed in Japanese arcades via the NESiCAxLIVE platform, some EventHubs readers have been wondering why the Osaka-based games maker decided to go with Hyper Street Fighter 2 and Street Fighter Alpha 3 instead of Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo and SFA3 Double Upper as two of their picks.

As it turns out, our readers weren't the only folks wondering about that.

After Capcom made the announcement at the Tokyo qualifier for the "Isshuu Sengeki Cup" Ultra Street Fighter 4 tournament yesterday, Famitsu caught up with Capcom's Head of Consumer Games Development Division 2 Yoshinori Ono to find out more about the project -- and asked about their criterion for games selection.
