Disney’s new CGI movie, Wreck-It Ralph, is about a video game villain who is trying to turn over a new leaf. The movie will contain many cameos from classic video games of the past as Ralph hops from game to game trying to prove that he can be a hero. The movie takes place in an arcade with video game characters hopping from one machine to another, and what’s any good arcade without some fighting games?

According to Ain’t It Cool News, classic fighting game characters will make an appearance in the movie. Street Fighter II’s Zangief and Mortal Kombat’s Kano are portrayed in a scene featuring a support group for video game villains. Concept art suggests M. Bison may also make an appearance.
