    From Where???

    The "I Am Street Fighter" documentary was originally released for the Street Fighter 25th Anniversary Collector's Set. Capcom has since decided to share this video with the world. The documentary explores the creation, history, and fans of the Street Fighter series. Give it a watch and let us discuss some Street Fighter!

    Thank you for posting this, I wasn't aware of this documentary, despite having been a fairly constant Street Fighter player since SFII CE found its way to my local arcade, many years ago.

    For all its detractors say about lack of originality, the series continues to be popular. I was playing Zero 3 on my Saturn just a couple of days ago.

    I have an internal CapCom document containing hand drawn designs for the Zero/Alpha series, I should scan it and post it for the SF fans here.

    This is wonderful news! From what I remember, this documentary was only packaged in as a Blu-Ray disc with a huge 25th Anniversary Box Set that was released recently (I snagged one!).

    I haven't watched it yet, but its great to see Capcom doing the right thing and making it publicly available to all! :yay:

    When I reached the portal, all I saw was this:

    Was like "What? Is Google down or something?"

    Then I noticed the article was about Street Fighter and realized it was just the YouTube video that was somehow momentarily down.

    check the final battle of justin vs daigo. Tech over 9999999999999999999²³



    go to 2:40 for AWESOME

    and the game gives Daigo "B" (3:02):D Maybe for "Beast"?

    anyone knew this was possible?

    Wayyy too much of this documentary is focused on the aspect of tournaments for my liking. I thought it was about to get interesting when the lady started talking about how she made the sound effects but that was only a very brief segment.

    As for the guys saying they could not think of a single improvement for SF2.. how about mid air moves like the various pirate editions had? :)
