Street Fighter Universe
There are games in the Street Fighter universe no one knows about. Universe of Street Fighter has a small connection with certain Capcom Games. I want to make this blogpost due to Rival Schools Akira making a appearance in Street Fighter V. During Street Fighter V Summer Update 2020 , two developers announce season 5 characters like Oro, Rose and Dan. Akira was a surprise announcement for fans of Rival School. One of Street Fighter V developed stated that Rival Schools is connected to Street Fighter like Final Fight. Due to Sakura making an appearance and go to same school as Hinata and other characters. My first thought that Rival Schools is dead but in 2020 it’s alive and well. That being said, I am hoping to see Street Fighter V Akira’s gameplay trailer soon.
They’re not going to use Marvel Vs Capcom- like gameplay mechanics like original game. Akira wil have V-Trigger and other moves like the rest. She might have tardy counter and team-attack during her ultra. Aside from Akira being apart of the Street Fighter Universe. There are some of other characters like Strider which is connected to Street Fighter. A character named Zeku who is Guy’s master and the first Strider. Stider Hiryu studies same style as Guy, Ginzu (Captain Commando) and Maki (Final Fight 2). Hiryu is from the future just like Captain Commando. Speaking of Captain Commando the setting is in the futuristic Metro City. Metro City is the hometown of Final Fight where Cody, Guy and Haggar lives. We don’t if Street Fighter didn’t exist went Captain Commando is born.
There is one game that’s not canon Street Fighter 2010. Kevin one of the main character exist in the Street Fighter universe. Rumor has it in a profile that Kevin was a secret agent of Shadowloo. Even Street Fighter 2010 is not canon but Kevin is apart of the universe. If you are a Wreslting fan, Satuarday Night Slam Masters is apart of the universe. Bliff and Gunloc were mention in a Street Fighter relationship tree book. Along with being mention in Hugo Street Fighter 3 Second Impact ending in BWA. Mike Haggar was a guest character in Slam Master. Making him first time crossing over in a Capcom game next to MVCI. Speaking of Final Fight, the series is consider Street Fighter cousin. Guy, Cody, Poison and others make a appearance in Street Fighter.
It’s not brainer that Final Fight shares a bond with Street Fighter. Cody and Guy appeared in Street Fighter Alpha series. Along with Rolento and Sodom then Maki for Street Fighter Alpha 3 Upper. Maki appeared in Capcom vs Snk as well for representing Final Fight. Hugo appeared in Street Fighter 3 then Poison in Street Fighter IV. As Street Fighter V rolls out, Abgail and Lucia were introduce making half of Final Fight appearing in Street Fighter games. There is one game called Capcom All Stars that was cancelled along time ago. One character named Ingrid who is apart of Street Fighter universe. She only appears in Capcom Fighting Jam and Alpha 3. Ingrid is mention in Tekken x Street Fighter game.
In a nutshell, Street Fighter universe is not really big. Some think Darkstalkers and Mega Man might be connected. Who knows what other games are connected to Street Fighter? I am still excited for Akira coming to Street Fighter V next year in 2021. Rival Schools need a remake or come to PC. I just like Project Justice and wanted to see a sequel soon. Look out to see what games in the Street Fighter Universe. Final Fight, Slam Masters and Rival Schools may not be only games in Street Fighter Universe. We will have to see Capcom expanded it in the near future. Fighting game fans continue to support Street Fighter community and keeping it alive. Tell me what you think in the comments? Along with social media sites as well.
