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.

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.

Earlier today at the conclusion of the Tokyo qualifier for Capcom and Taito's Ultra Street Fighter 4 "Isshuu Sengeki Cup" Japan national tournament, Capcom's Tomoaki Ayano made an announcement for a "Capcom Fighting Games Revival Project", that will see four classic Capcom CPS2 fighters receive widescreen 16:9 ports for Taito's NESiCAxLive arcade platform.

'Let us engage in fishticuffs!' - live stream pits two fish against each other in Street Fighter 2

Over the many, many years of playing Street Fighter I've heard things such as "baited" and "fishing for an attack," but this isn't quite what I had in mind...

Inspired by the recent "Fish Plays Pokemon" broadcast, this aquatic live stream experience pits two fish (Aquarius and Robert the Bruce) against each other in Street Fighter 2.

The sea creatures input attacks by swimming to designated areas in their tank that are marked with specific buttons. 2-player mode is made possible by the use of color detection, and both combatants can perform moves by swimming to different areas.

If you're looking to pass some time and become hypnotized against your will by the marvel that is two fish playing Street Fighter, be sure to tune in between 7 a.m. - 10 p.m. EST to catch the broadcast.

Catch all the action below.

8-bit roundup: Poison's USF4 theme would fit perfectly in a Mega Man game; Dee Jay, T. Hawk, Cammy, and Fei Long stages hit you right in the nostalgia

Earlier today, 8-bit theme extraordinaire Mr. BulbaMike uploaded a brand new song conversion that features Poison's Ultra Street Fighter 4 track.

After hearing this new composition, (and having personally beaten Mega Man 1 - 6), I can say that this particular track sounds like it would fit right in as one of the robot villain stage themes.

Additionally, we have added in some of Mike's past works that include 8-bit renditions of the stage themes for T. Hawk, Cammy, Fei Long, and Dee Jay. Not only will these songs take you right back to playing Super Street Fighter 2: The New Challengers on your Super Nintendo, but the style of these tracks really add a retro feel to them.

As an added cherry on top, you will also find an 8-bit version of Decapre's Ultra Street Fighter 4 theme. Check them all out below, and feel free to let us know which you enjoyed most.

'Mortal Kombat vs. Street Fighter is a possibility, but not a probability', Ed Boon on crossover potential and new finishing moves in Mortal Kombat X

Mortal Kombat director Ed Boon was present at GamesCom this year, and while at the event, he talked not only about his own desire to make a Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat crossover, but also one of the Mortal Kombat series trademark finishing moves, besides Fatalities, returning in the new installment, Mortal Kombat X.

Throughout the years, Mortal Kombat has had all manners of bizarre finishing moves, even though the Fatality is the most well-known one. At times, moves called Brutality, Animality, Babality and Friendship, among others, have existed within the series. Boon stated that one of these old classics will be returning in the new installment - but couldn't unveil which. Below, you'll find a snippet of what Boon had to say.

Ed Boon: For those who are familiar with the Mortal Kombat, we’ve first had the Fatality and we added a Babality. We had the Friendship moves, Brutality moves and all of these crazy things over the years... We are going to be reinstating an ‘Ality’ from a previous game into Mortal Kombat X. And I can’t wait to be able to talk about it but at the moment I can’t.

Hit the jump to hear what Boon had to say about the dream crossover between his own franchise and Capcom's fighting game juggernaut.

Turtle Guile gets his own game in 'Takareet Fighter II' smartphone app; Hadouken ramen-serving game to come soon

In Japan, there is a fairly popular short animation series entitled "Eagle Talon" that is loosely based on Capcom's Street Fighter series.

In Eagle Talon, the protagonists are a team of evil villains -- who just happen to sport character motifs similar to the world warriors in Street Fighter II -- plotting to take over the world. Their arch-rival in the series is a superhero named Deluxe Fighter, who's said to be a "narcissistic and largely incapable bully".

Although the anime series's characters share a couple of similarities with those in Street Fighter II, ultimately they are original creations, which means that unlike in the situation with High School Girl, Eagle Talon creator Ryo Ono did not have to seek Capcom's permission for anything.

But Capcom is nevertheless aware of Ryo Ono's work. In fact, today a "Takareet Fighter II: Turtle Guile" smartphone game app was released that sees the characters from both Eagle Talon and Street Fighter II cross-over into the same universe.

Check out the images for the game below, along with a video demonstration of the app done by the legendary Takahashi Meijin.
