SF Special Intros

Appearing in the Alpha series along with Street Fighter III, certain characters would have special introductions when they met in battle. Ryu and Ken would fist bump, Hugo and Alex would re-enact the famous Andre the Giant/Hulk Hogan standoff, and so on. While only being small animations, they added some character to certain match-ups and reminded players of the lore surrounding the Street Fighter series.

While special intros still appear in games like Injustice 2, they have all but disappeared from modern Street Fighter games. Hoping to inject some of that lost character back into the series, sigmaG19 has remade some of his favorite special intros, using models from Street Fighter IV and V. Fingers crossed that Capcom takes notice and brings these beloved animations back for the rumored Super Street Fighter V expansion.
