The world according to Street Fighter [PIC]

Last week Capcom confirmed Super Street Fighter IV, a slight update to this year’s critically acclaimed Street Fighter IV, which will tweak certain fight mechanics as well as add several new characters to the fray. One of those new fighters is Juri, the first Korean character in the series’ 20 year history. This got us thinking, now that South Korea has a star fighter, how many countries are represented by the number one fightin’ franchise?

The answer: a lot. We decided to honor them all with this super swanky desktop background starring every single character from the main SF series (that’s I~IV, plus Alpha 1~3). Big thanks to Fighters Generation for having all of their sprites pre-ripped, saving us hours of toiling away. It’s a super-cool, cripplingly thorough site for anyone even half interested in the subject matter.

For more on Super Street Fighter IV and several other Capcom titles, be sure to check out tomorrow’s episode of TalkRadar (72, for those counting), as it’s co-hosted by Capcom’s own Seth Killian.

Awful box art: Street Fighter series
How can one of gaming’s most respected franchises keep getting such ugly-ass packaging?

    This is so awesome! But I like what everyone is saying, we need a Canadian fighter...maybe give him a hockey stick?

    here is my opinion on where the origins of Ingrid, Q, and Seth are located. Ingrid is from around the Netherlands or Germish county Q is a robot made from japan or from silicon valley. And last i think Seth is god i think

    Necro is really an Austrian who keeps people in his basement... "FACT"! Oro is also known as 'Old man McScrotumface'... "FACT"! Q is a watchmen... or watches men... or something. "FACT"!

    Arch27: You do not understand: Ken, Guile, Balrog, etc are "American" so there is an 'American Flag' with 'United States of America' Eagle, Birdie, Dudley and Cammy are "English" So Fair enough to put an "England" title to them. But It is incorrect to put the British flag next to this title. The British flag (Union Jack) represents the Union of the Kingdom of England, the Kingdom of Scotland and the Kingdom of Northern Ireland, as Wales was not a Kingdom but a Principality it could not be included on the flag. Having these Highlighted areas in dark gray should not be represented as "England" its "Great Britain". Understandable if it said Britain the pointer could could point there but it says England. ---- seem to be jumping to conclusions also. A characters stage and their country of origin don't always coincide. There are a lot more than just two characters with unknown places of origin Bison, Oro, Akuma etc

    Is Juri good at StarCraft too, GR?
  • Arch27 - October 9, 2009 2:01 p.m.

    Marshall123: By that rationale, all the US fighters are from Kansas because that's where the pointer is pointing to...

    Good fact checking, sir! I stand corrected and humbled.
  • Marshall123 - October 9, 2009 10:53 a.m.

    1. Ingrid's Birthplace is Malaysia "FACT" 2. Eagle, Birdie, Dudley and Cammy are 'English' Yet the pointer is pointing at 'Scotland' And showing the 'British' Flag. Change the Pointer to the Lower half of the United Kingdom or write it as British.

    Street Fighter is in desperate need of a fighter from Antarctica. Like, an eskimo who was raised by Polar Bears or something.
  • pikachu2000 - October 9, 2009 3:54 a.m.

    All right. Now all we need is an Australian, Middle Easten, and Canadaian and the series will be finally complete. And great shout out to TFG. That is one kickass site. check it out.

    street fighter is like Nascar it is just there and when you tell people about it they stare at you with the "what the f*ck" expression on there face.
