Curious About the Origins of Street Fighter’s Vega? Check Out Matador

Before becoming a Shadowloo assassin,Vega grew up under a loving mother — until his stepfather murdered her. The trauma transformed the Spaniard into the narcissistic, beauty-loving, wall-climbing , masked killer in Street Fighter, and the creators of Balrog: Behind the Glory retold his agony in a short film that premiered this past Saturday at Evo 2014.

Writer Brett Bayonne and director Vahe Gabuchian did a great job incorporating suspenseful elements one would expect to see in a hit television drama, making this 15-minute clip one you shouldn’t miss if you’re a hardcore Street Fighter fans. Check the video out below, share your opinions in the comments below, and don’t forget to scream along whenever Vega attacks.
