What more needs to be said that hasn’t already been said about the Street Fighter series? Regardless of what anyone thinks about the current status of Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition, Capcom’s legendary fighting game series has left a huge impact — not just in the fighting game genre but gaming in general, both casually and competitively, on a worldwide scale — for over 30 years. The Street Fighter brand has become even more of a household name in the mainstream, where some random passersby might catch a major tournament being aired on ESPN or TBS at their local bar. Street Fighter and its community are gaining more positive exposure, growth, and acceptance in the general public by the day, and that’s a good thing.
The Street Fighter YouTube channel has uploaded a three-part documentary series covering the history, community growth, and the next generation of new players of this perennial franchise. Footage from past tournaments as well as numerous interviews with pro players, commentators, personalities, and fans are shown here, and inform the viewers about the mark the Street Fighter series has left on them — as well as what the future holds for it. You can watch all three parts below (which total to a run time of about an hour-and-a-half).
