The Street Fighter series is heavily influenced by martial artists from around the globe — some real and some fictional — and Did You Know Gaming's latest video walks you through some of the more infamous inspirations the franchise used.


They also take a look back at some of Street Fighter 2's design documents, showing a few of the alternative looks the fighters sported, before they became the people we all know so very well.

One of the more interesting factoids comes from Guile's design doc stating that he is a normal average set character "put in for Americans to use."

The whole 7 minute clip is narrated by Maximilian, and also examines some of the history of the games themselves.
