Street Fighter 4 stories

Do you more prefer Khainsaw's Poison or Roxy cosplay?

We recently featured a cosplayer named Khainsaw showing off her takes on Cammy and Chun-Li, but are back again to show off two more (okay, maybe one and a half) of her amazing attires.

Today we're featuring Khainsaw's Poison and Roxy, two characters originally from Capcom's Final Fight that have made their way into Street Fighter (Poison on the roster, Roxy in the story).

The Zero Setsu's fighting game art gorgeously pays tribute to Third Strike, Marvel vs. Capcom 2, and other iconic titles

We're featuring yet another talented fighting game artist on the site today as we peep the beautiful work of The Zero Setsu, lover of Third Strike, Marvel vs. Capcom 2, and muscles.

Most Capcom fighting games come with a few fresh visual styles as promotional art often differs from in-game art, and through Setsu's work we see some interesting influences as characters appear in something of a cross between 3S, MvC2, and the artist's own style.

Daigo Umehara recalls the time he donated $60,000 in Capcom Cup winnings and still had to pay taxes on it

BST|Daigo "The Beast" Umehara didn't quite win Capcom Cup in 2015, but his second place Ultra Street Fighter 4 finish earned him a cool $60,000. Now, we're not sure what Daigo's financials look like, but apparently he's able to spare an extra $60k here and there.

Instead of taking that money for himself, Daigo decided to donate it all to charity. He recounts his decision to do so as well as the fact that he still wound up having to pay taxes on the sum in FGC Translated's recent upload.

Street Fighter celebrates its monumental 35th anniversary

Street Fighter 2 may have started the fighting game community as we know it, but none of us would be here without the original.

The Street Fighter series is celebrating its 35th anniversary here in 2022, and Capcom certainly has some fun stuff up their sleeves for the milestone, starting out with a new logo.

Daigo Umehara reveals what he felt when he faced off against mashing kid in Street Fighter 4

You might be familiar with a certain meme GIF that shows a laughing BST|Daigo Umehara facing off against a mashing kid in Street Fighter 4. What really makes the clip so noteworthy is how intensely the kid is mashing to get moves to come out. It's hard not to laugh while watching this event unfold.

Thanks to FGC Translated, we now know what emotion Daigo was really feeling during that 2014 event that took place in Hong Kong.

Poison's history features a strange connection to Plumbers Don't Wear Ties, a lot of gender ambiguity, and a lucky game omission

Making her way from a non-playable Final Fight baddie to a fully playable character in Street Fighter, Poison has an interesting and storied past behind her. While the glamorous contender is surely popular within the fighting game community, her origins and rise to prominence aren't discussed all that much.

Top Hat Gaming Man aims to change all that, though, with his new character history documentary on the pink-haired warrior. Delving into the details, we learn that Poison actually has an indirect tie to the notoriously terrible 3D0 game Plumbers Don't Wear Ties, some real back and forth on her actual gender, and a whole lot more.

This Dragon Ball Z fan art looks a lot like Street Fighter 4's old promotional artwork and it's amazing

Over the years, I have seen my fair share of Dragon Ball Z fan art. Hell, I've created my own fair share of Dragon Ball Z fan art as some of my earliest memories of drawing (back when I was planning on becoming a comic book artist) involved purchasing these large drawing pads with DBZ on the cover from the dollar store and filling them with crudely illustrated Saiyans.

Fan art of Dragon Ball Z has taken on pretty much every form it can, but I have yet to see someone portray the Z Warriors in the style of Street Fighter 4's old promotional art pieces. Intentional or not, these works from Twitter user spmjg7 do exactly that, and they're truly amazing.

Is it time for Capcom to re-release Ultra Street Fighter 4 with rollback netcode?

It's been nearly eight years since Ultra Street Fighter 4 rolled out in 2014, and with how much success Capcom has seen with re-releasing older Street Fighter titles on modern platforms, we're wondering if it's about time for USF4 to make a return... this time with rollback netcode.

Looking back over the last 15 years or so, Capcom has given us many such re-releases as most numbered Street Fighter titles have seen at least one, but would it make sense for USF4 to come back at this particular point in time?

Desk takes a break from combos to create an absolutely rockin' cover of Ken's iconic Street Fighter theme to groove to

Ken's character theme remains as one of the most iconic and timeless pieces of fighting game music ever since its introduction in Street Fighter 2 over 30 years ago, but how could you make it more rockin' than it already is?

For those unaware, the multitalented Desk is just as powerful behind a guitar and synthesizer than he is on the arcade sticks making combo videos, so he decided to tackle a special cover of Ken's theme to groove into the new year with.

Will M. Bison be alive in Street Fighter 6?

M. Bison is one of the most recognizable villains in all of gaming, very well may be the single character Capcom has used most to drive Street Fighter's story forward, and is currently dead.

Though he held perhaps the biggest L yet at the end of Street Fighter 5, we still have to wonder if he'll wind up resurrected in time to get on the roster for Street Fighter 6. Looking back over his history, there may be a case to be made that this will indeed happen.

That time Luffy and Lap Chi played 1 round of Ultra Street Fighter 4 for $100

You don't need to love Street Fighter 4 to appreciate how incredibly hype this single round of Ultra Street Fighter 4 action is. The mighty Ryan Hart recently shared footage of a Canada Cup money match from years ago between Canada Cup organizer, Lap Chi Duong, and Evo 2014 champion, RB|Luffy.

The catch? This wasn't actually a match, it was a round. With $100 on the line, Lap Chi took on the Evo champ hoping to steal away an early advantage with his unpredictably Blanka play. Believe us, you'll be glad you gave this two minute clip your time.

Ranking Capcom's 8 best selling complete fighting game entries

Although Capcom would likely be considered by many as the original kings of fighting games, the actual performance of said titles have reached some remarkable heights but also shockingly low valleys over the past 30 years.

We recently reported that Street Fighter 5 is reaching very close to surpassing Street Fighter 2 as Capcom's best selling fighting game, but that only includes the original Super Nintendo version. How do things look then when each entry is correctly combined together?
