Desk gives Street Fighter 5 a Street Fighter 2-style overhaul, and it's the best thing you'll see all day

Capcom should absolutely release a DLC theme like this

In fighting games, fans love seeing callbacks to past titles in the series. Some of the best and most recent examples of this are the Street Fighter 2 remake stages found in Street Fighter 5.

Combo video creator Desk has taken this idea to a whole new level. Today, we have a Street Fighter 5 compilation that is injected with heavy influences from the game that put the franchise on the map.

According to Desk, this project started out as a simple mission to create a remix for Karin's theme in response to the recently released classic themes DLC. The remix was meant to sound as though it would appear in Street Fighter 2.

This remix eventually evolved into what we see here. The combo video features custom menus and HUD, made by Desk, as well as sound effects ripped straight from the Street Fighter 2: World Warriors ROM.

The presentation in this video is excellent, and it is supplemented by the stylish combos Desk pulls off throughout.

I can only hope that this inspires Capcom to create a full-fledged Street Fighter 2 theme for Street Fighter 5.
