A fan has taken it upon themselves to recreate the intro animation for Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo. Prepare to go down a trip down memory road with this video.

Indeed, Jawryu has created two versions of the classic intro animation. The second version is designed to be more retro than the first.

Just like with the original, we see Ryu in his stance while in the shadows. Eventually, Chun-Li and Cammy appear in the scene.

Every now and again, we can get a more vivid picture of Ryu as lightning strikes. Jawryu has gone so far as to even animate Ryu's hair and headband as the wind is blowing them.

Inevitably, Akuma decides to make his presence known. As a result, Ryu is now preparing to throw one of his iconic Hadokens.

For the sake of comparison, I've also included a video that showcases the original intro animation for Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo. Needless to say, Jawryu does a good job of recapturing the many details that are found in the original.
