What Street Fighter 5 almost looked like; concept art and hyper realistic images from early in the game's development

As we found earlier today, Capcom originally wanted to make Street Fighter 5's art much more realistic. While they ended up scrapping this idea, there was some development in this avenue.

We've discovered a few images depicting concept art from the early days of SF5, and things looked drastically different. We get a glimpse of Ryu, Bison, Karin, Nash, Chun-Li and Birdie, and some of them looked absolutely awesome.

Check out what could have been in the gallery below.
