Street Fighter 3 introduced the world to the new generation of world warriors, and us fighting game players will be responsible to bring up the next generation of players whether they are our own flesh and blood or other youngsters trying to learn the joys and salt that the genre can bring.

One fighting game player by way of Zangeof decided to announce to the world that he'll be adding a new member to his family with a nice and heartwarming pregnancy reveal video using Street Fighter and arcade sticks to represent the fighter of tomorrow.

Starting out with a Street Fighter 5 match between what looks to be Zangeof and his partner, both of them are playing with their own fight sticks before being interrupted by the classic "Here Comes a New Challenger" screen from the older titles.

We then see both sticks next to each other on a coffee table with a smaller Hori stick in between them to represent the small photo of the ultrasound with the sound of their heartbeat and the caption "coming soon" in the frame.

Zangeof says he'll name his child Ryu if his video hits 1,000 Retweets on Twitter though we do hope he runs that by the mother to be first to make sure that's okay.

We at EventHubs give our congratulations to Zangeof and his partner and wish them a happy and healthy pregnancy for their upcoming fighter.
