Street Fighter 3 stories

Here's more classic Street Fighter comic strips and Darkstalkers artwork from the creator of Sgt. Frog

Before the interconnected internet world of today, hundreds of comics, artwork pieces and more about our favorite 90's fighting games circulated throughout Japan with many never seeing reprinting or republishing since leaving a good amount of work seemingly lost to those that were not there to find them over 20 years ago.

We recently posted some of the classic art of Sgt. Frog's creator Mine Yoshizaki's work on Street Fighter and Darkstalkers anthology manga / comics, and now we're back to share some more with some actual comic strips this time.

Matt Moylan, director of publishing at UDON Entertainment, shared with us some more of Yoshizaki's Capcom related artwork from his personal collection showing us anthology covers that the manga artist had worked on in the 90's plus his actual comic strips.

These anthology manga featured sometimes over a dozen different artists creating individual chapters to be featured in a volume or a collection of their "4-koma" strips from magazines which are four-panel gag comics — examples of which you can see in the gallery below — according to Moylan.

The vast majority of these pieces and collections have never been reprinted or re-released outside of Japan because it can be quite hard now to track down certain artists after almost 25 years in some cases to get the proper permissions, so getting to see some of these feels like a rare treat unless you're a big fan of Yoshizaki's that already owns all of his art books.

You can check out the gallery of Yoshizaki's Capcom work below including manga covers, insert illustrations and comic strips. Even if you can't read Japanese, the strips are still entertaining as some of them feature characters interacting with different versions of themselves... and Hsien-Ko steals Vega's claw.

The birth of BIONIC ARM, Sonic Fox's ascension, Moment 37... here are Screw Attack's top 10 most hype fighting game moments

Full disclosure, this video came out just before EVO this year as a hype up for fighting games' biggest and baddest yearly open bracket event, but that doesn't mean we aren't still interested in what Screw Attack thinks are the 10 most epic fighting game moments.

We also won't beat around the bush and pretend as though anything has even come close to the legendary EVO Moment 37, as CYG|Daigo's Third Strike parrying of FOX|Justin Wong's Super Art stands fairly decisively at the top of this category.

Considering the fact that the best fighting gamers from all over the world clash at EVO more than any other single venue, it's not surprising to say there have been plenty of other incredibly exciting memories that have stemmed from the big dance.

My personal favorite from the list was one I had actually forgotten about until this reminder and even having just seen it seconds ago, the mere thought of it still makes the hairs on my arms stand up.

I'm, of course, referring to the EVO 2014 bout between RB|Snake Eyez and RZR|Xian that went down the absolute wire. Seeing it in person was indescribable, but you'll get the gist of it all by watching it back in this video.

Let us know what you thought of Screw Attack's countdown in the comments. If you disagree with their list please let us know how yours would play out.

One of Elena's animations in Street Fighter 3 was traced all the way back to a David Lee Roth music video from the 80's

Most if not all characters and environments in video games are made based on some sort of analogue or influence from people and objects in the real world with techniques like 3D motion capture today or simply designing pixels to look like something already recognizable like E.T. on the Atari 2600.

It's not everyday you see animations in sprite based games taken from real life sources though unless they were created in house by developers, but today is one of those rare days.

An internet user going by the name deafidelity was watching the music video for David Lee Roth's "Just a Gigolo" from 1985 when he noticed that one of the dancers strikes a pose that more than just resembles one of Elena's victory poses from Street Fighter 3. They're almost identical.

Many are suggesting that this animation was created using a technique called rotoscoping in which something in motion can be traced over to be used in other places like recording real people dancing to be turned into animation — something Disney did for Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

The Street Fighter series itself though is full of references to real life people or movies like Balrog's physical similarities to boxer Mike Tyson — never mind his name is M. Bison in Japan — and that Sagat was modeled after a real Muay Thai fighter of the same name.

You can check out the poses side by side in the animated clip below... just don't stare at Elena's head too much or you might notice not everything was actually animated in that sequence.

This may be the most elaborate theory connecting G, Q and the Street Fighter world postulating the gold wielder may be the primordial man and a demon

The speculation about Q's backstory has been raging on between Street Fighter fans for nearly 20 years now, and with the inclusion of G in Street Fighter 5 comes even more speculation about the connections between the two mysterious characters.

We know that both are referred to as one letter names, that Q's move set appears to be based on a more clumsy / lumbering version of G's minus his mystical powers and that G's Story Costume bears a striking resemblance to the Street Fighter 3: Third Strike character.

Now, voice actor / voice over professional Steven Mane claims he may have put the pieces together in finding out who exactly G and Q are in one of the most in-depth theories yet linking the two together, to alchemy, psychology and to actual demons.

It starts by examining another theory about the two characters that postulates that G is actually the "Cosmic Man," "Original Man," or "Primordial Man" who wishes to reconnect Earth and all of its inhabitants though not exactly through benevolent means. G wants to unite the world in an "End of Evangelion" sort of way.

This prior theory also suggests that it was no coincidence that Rashid and Menat were the ones to fight G during his Story Mode or that we don't see the story from G's perspective, as Menat reveals G to be 'The Fool' which can mean that G is empty / the abyss or has infinite potential. Meanwhile, Rashid and Menat represent the opposites of 'The Sun' and 'The Moon' that clash as masculine and feminine, science and magic plus more leading to some sort of role in the future.

It also suggests that Q is G after somehow losing his powers though Mane doesn't believe that to be the case rather Q is an agent for G, and there are many Q agents all over the world. In Mane's theory, G is manipulating Q through mind control sending them all over the world to find and fight strong warriors to capture, destroy or assimilate. G is a worse villain than M. Bison or Gill ever was.

Street Fighter 2 had fireballs, Alpha had V-ism, 3 had parries, 4 had Focus Attacks; a look back at the series' changing mechanics and identity

Street Fighter 2 is the game that kicked off the fighting game craze of the early 90s, so it's only natural that Capcom would produce a number of sequels and spin-offs plus entirely new titles that would need to find their own footing and identity.

The game started out very simplistic by today's standards, but added new characters, moves and mechanics to the later versions of Street Fighter 2 to differentiate it and keep players coming back though the series would move in different directions beginning with Street Fighter Alpha.

Fighting game content creator Novriltataki recently made a video presenting how they see Street Fighter has changed at its core many times over due to the adding or subtracting of new mechanics / "gimmicks" between games. This culminates in the idea that Street Fighter is lacking a true overarching identity between all of its titles when compared to other series.

The main argument brought forward is that Street Fighter 2 relied heavily on fireballs that did good damage, footsies and throws, but games like Street Fighter Alpha and Street Fighter 3 would shift that focus of a game plan to the new mechanics of the particular game instead of just adding upon what the earlier game started.

The Street Fighter Alpha games added new ideas to the mix like Custom Combos which dominated the way the game was played at higher levels while weakening fireballs. Street Fighter 3 added the parry mechanic which became vital, but also the dash, changes to throws and EX moves which would be used to build upon as the series progressed.

Street Fighter 4 brought with it the age of Focus Attacks and Ultras, but also ditched the "gimmicks" of the previous titles while Street Fighter 5 would get rid of Ultras in favor of the V-system. Novriltataki points to other fighting game franchises which seem to add to, build and fine-tune existing mechanics to develop a series to preserve its identity. You can check out the full video after the jump, and let us know in the comments whether or not you agree with the sentiment and idea presented by Novriltataki.

G and Q have much more in common than their one-letter names: Pombear shows just how similar the pair's moves are in Street Fighter 3 and 5

When G was first revealed in the opening cinematic trailer for Street Fighter 5: Arcade Edition at Capcom Cup 2017, many people speculated about his possible connections to the only other world warrior with a one-letter name, Q.

Speculation was further fueled by the reveal of G's Story Costume which also heavily bared a resemblance to Street Fighter's most mysterious character. Now G has finally released though, so we can see what connections he has to Q — and there appears to be many. G's Story Mode actually doesn't give away any details as to who the character is or his connection to Q, but his move set paints a different picture.

A player named Pombear recently uploaded a video to YouTube that compares G and Q's normal and special moves in their respective games, and there's too much crossover to be considered coincidence.

Most or almost all of G's normals and specials appear to be directly taken from Q's move set in Street Fighter 3: Third Strike including standing light punch, standing heavy kick, crouching medium punch, his throws and dashing punch specials.

Pombear also notes some sort of degradation on Q's moves compared to G's — which could make sense if they are indeed related due to Street Fighter 5 taking place before 3 — where when Q performs a move like back heavy kick or sweep he will appear to be attempting to replicate G's "complete" move though he will instead lose his balance and fall to the ground.

Q also generally seems more lumbering than G with his movements looking more forced and mechanical compared to the latter's smooth styles. Both characters remain almost a complete mystery to us, but they do appear to be related in many regards. It will just be up to Capcom to see whether or not we will get more backstory for these two characters — though any canon story is likely not as cool or fun as the theories we've come up with over the years. You can see Pombear's full video comparison below.

Rick Sanchez apparently portal hopped to an SNK sprite dimension; Sabockee's fighting game sprite work sees various characters with retro looks

Today we're bringing you a handful of Sabockee's wonderful sprites that see fighting game characters as they might have looked if included in Capcom vs. Street Fighter, SNK titles or even Street Fighter 3.

Some of these are straightforward replications of the popular characters, but others have something of a twist. Those are namely the Majin Buu variations on fighters like Geese Howard, Morrigan, Chun-Li and Guile.

We even get a surprise cameo of Rick Sanchez from Adult Swim's Rick and Morty as it seems he's crossed through a portal into a universe where everything is SNK from 20 years ago themed.

At first thought we figured it'd be cool to see Rick in a fighting game, but then we quickly remembered he'd probably just utterly destroy any and all opponents with little to no effort. Maybe not the best idea.

Unfortunately these are all pretty small to begin with, so clicking on each thumbnail won't do a ton in the way of enhancement. They're still really cool though, and well worth a look over for any fighting game fan.

Check out the full gallery below and be sure to head over to Sabockee's Deviant Art page to see the plethora of additional sprites just like these. Let us know which were your favorites in the comments.

Street Fighter 30th Anniversary digital sales outperformed expectations which contributed to Capcom's most profitable first quarter in company history

The Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection was released on May 29, 2018. In a recent press release concerning Capcom's first quarter of its 2018 fiscal year, Capcom revealed that digital sales of the fighting game collection outperformed expectations.

"In the Digital Contents business, which has continued to growth steadily in recent years, the new Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection gave a solid performance, outperforming expectations," said the report. "Further, in addition to healthy sales growth of high-margin catalog titles, the Digital Contents business drove earnings, resulting in the highest operating income for a first quarter in company history."

This is particularly impressive since it only accounts for international sales. The Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection was delayed until Fall 2018 for Japan.

While the values of said expectations and actual sales of the Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection were not provided, it was revealed that Capcom's net sales were up by 46.5% and operating income was up by 550.8%, year-over-year.

Update: Street Fighter 30th Anniversary patch on Nintendo Switch to fix online issues, ban Akuma in Super Turbo ranked matches and more

July 30, 2018 Update: Capcom has revealed the Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection patch for the Nintendo Switch that will be coming to the platform later today — July 30th. You can check out the full patch notes after the jump to see how they compare to the other platforms.

Earlier: Capcom has announced that an upcoming patch will be released on June 28, 2018 around 10:00 a.m. PDT. Apparently there will be different changes for each of the consoles.

Matchmaking filters were added for the PlayStation 4 and Steam versions of the game. Notably, the Xbox One version uses "Microsoft’s system for optimizing matchmaking for users with strong signals," therefore no matchmaking filter was added for the Xbox One version.

The lobby issues of the PlayStation 4 have been improved. How they've been improved is not outright stated.

Akuma is no longer playable in Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo online ranked for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Steam versions of the game. This particular fighter has been banned from Street Fighter 2 Turbo tournaments for years.

There won't be a patch for the Nintendo Switch version at the same time as the other platforms. Capcom has confirmed that they are still working on it though. "Coming soon."

This should hopefully make the online experience better for all players. Understandably, there have been some complaints about many of the issues that are being resolved with this patch.

Ryu is looking pretty spry for turning 54 years old; let's take a look back at the icon's visual history to celebrate his birthday

Street Fighter's official timeline is a bit of a mess — which may also be a bit of an understatement — though according to Capcom the fighting game titles appear to be set in the 80s and 90s, so we'll just need to ignore all of the futuristic technology in Street Fighter 4 and 5.

Today is July 21st which means that it's also Ryu's birthday, and he is officially listed as being born in 1964 making him a quite surprising 54 years old this time around. To celebrate, let's take a look at the world warrior's visual history from the original Street Fighter all the way to Marvel vs. Capcom: Inifnite — though he also has a new gig currently going as a Power Ranger.

Ryu first appeared in the original Street Fighter in 1987 — sporting red shoes which never really made a comeback — alongside the likes of other Street Fighter icons Ken and Sagat.

The student of Gouken and rival to many fighters has been playable in almost more games than we can count, so we have compiled a brief visual history taking a look at how Ryu's portrait design has evolved through Capcom's fighting games including crossovers like Marvel vs. Capcom and Street Fighter x Tekken.

Our image below features 27 of Ryu's appearances across every Street Fighter title, sequel, versus fighting game and more. We get a better chance to look at how his design has changed over three decades and made his way from two-dimensions to three.

Street Fighter 4 happened to celebrate its 10th birthday earlier this week as well, and Sagat also turned 63 years old at the start of this month. You can take a look at Ryu's 31-year history below.

Street Fighter 5's G deemed 'The Fool' on 30th anniversary tarot cards; Rose, C. Viper, Oro, Elena, and more also featured

The Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection saw its release stateside back in May, but unfortunately had its launch in Japan delayed. Last night, Capcom announced that the assortment of 12 classic Street Fighter titles will become available overseas on October 25th, 2018.

Not only will this version of the game that brings legendary entries from the Street Fighter 2 series, Street Fighter 3, and even Street Fighter Alpha back into living rooms be seeing the addition of its Japanese text and versions of the titles, but it'll also come with a couple of awesome collector's editions. One of the extra goodies among those special purchase options is a set of Street Fighter tarot cards that has the fighting game community excited — and rightfully so.

These tarot cards feature different characters across the 30 years of Street Fighter games, each with their own title relative to the character slapped across the front such as "Death" or "The Hermit." What's most interesting about these cards is the fact that one of them prominently features Street Fighter 5: Arcade Edition's upcoming DLC character, G.

We still know very little about the mysterious, gold-marked newcomer. However, G's tarot card sees him playing the role of "The Fool."

This might be a hint at what kind of personality we can expect from the president-looking contender. Perhaps he'll err more on the side of a jokester rather than an ultra-serious character like Urien or M. Bison. We recently ran through the various theories about who or what G is in Street Fighter 5, and you can check them out here.

These tarot cards also feature other characters that we haven't seen return in the latest Street Fighter title like Street Fighter Alpha's Rose and Rolento, Street Fighter 3 Third Strike's Elena and Oro, and Street Fighter 4's C. Viper. The initial look at the cards was a small image, but the gallery below is higher-res and will give you a good look at what you can expect.

Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection International release information along with special limited editions for Japan revealed

Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection came to most of the world at the end of May, but the Japanese release was delayed to make it suit its native market by adding in the original versions and Japanese text though we now know when that version is going to release.

Capcom announced today that Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection will be releasing in Japan on October 25, 2018 and will come with the original Japanese titles — including the Street Fighter Zero games instead of Street Fighter Alpha.

There will also be a couple limited edition versions of the International version exclusive to the E-Capcom online store in Japan that include some pretty awesome bonuses for the Street Fighter collectors out there.

The Complete Edition will come with a special framed artwork from Bengus depicting Ryu and the rest of the world warriors' fists along with a special set of Street Fighter tarot cards, a special card from Capcom designer Hina Nana and replacement covers to change the box art to that of any of the 12 titles included in the collection — you can have a PS4 version of Third Strike if you like.

This limited Complete Edition will be available for the PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch versions of the collection and cost 24,880 yen or around $220 USD. An Arcana Edition including the game, tarot card set and covers is also available for 8,500 yen or $75.

While the main titles on the International collection will be in Japanese, their online counterparts will remain the standard English versions so everyone can play together. You can take a look at the special artwork, tarot cards and exchangeable covers in the gallery below.

Yun gives new meaning to the term 'hat trick' in Street Fighter 3: Second Impact

Yun is recognized as one of the poster boys and most recognizable characters for the Street Fighter 3 series of games, even outside of being among the top tier characters in Third Strike for his style, animation and possibly his resemblance to a certain Gundam character.

The Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection came out in May (unless you live in Japan) bringing with it 12 classic Street Fighter titles to the modern era including all three of the games from th Street Fighter 3 series.

A Twitter user by the name of FlashG recently uploaded a clip showing off how to easily get a perfect score using Yun for Sean's level 5 basketball parry Bonus Stage in the oft overlooked Street Fighter 3: Second Impact plus the special goody you receive for performing such a feat.

Yun's taunt in the game sees him spin his signature cap around his finger, and as it turns out, the hat has enough of a hit box to knock away all 20 of Sean's balls that get tossed his way with ease giving him a perfect score of a cool 160,000 bonus towards his arcade run.

For getting the perfect score on the Bonus Stage, it appears as though the game will go into your character's Super Art animation to celebrate your supposedly difficult accomplishments.

You can take a look at FlashG's full clip of the Bonus Stage below, and let us know what your favorite tidbit or small detail about these classic Street Fighter games is in the comments section after the jump.

Visual history of Sagat takes a look at 30 years of designs for the Street Fighter icon

Today marks Sagat's 63rd birthday if we go by his character bio which states that he was born on July 2nd, 1955, so now is as good of a time as ever to take a look at how Sagat's design and demeanor have evolved over the series' 30-year history.

Sagat is one of the few characters that has appeared in every Street Fighter series of games except for 3 and one of the even fewer that have stuck around since the original Street Fighter game.

His journey has seen him become the "Emperor of Muay Thai" and final boss of the original Street Fighter, getting scarred by Ryu leaving a personal hatred towards him and working for Shadaloo as one of M. Bison's generals to helping free Ryu from Bison's mind control, leaving Shadaloo and looking to better himself and his expression through his fighting.

Standing at over seven-feet tall, Sagat is always an intimidating figure which many of his designs put emphasis on with either a look of smugness, arrogance or just pure rage. His appearance in more recent titles show him much more stern and serious, but much less angry than he once was.

We don't know how exactly Sagat will look in-game in Street Fighter 5: Arcade Edition, but we do get to see him battling Ryu in the game's new opening cinematic with his traditional gear though his DLC image appears to add a bit more to his design.

You can take a look at the full gallery below for his appearances in Street Fighter titles along with crossovers like Capcom vs. SNK. Be sure to let us know which version of the Emperor of Muay Thai is your favorite down in the comments section.
