Well, it’s a surprise to be sure, but a welcome one. The original 1994 Street Fighter movie is currently streaming for free on YouTube, although not everyone will be able to watch it. The movie is currently region-locked, only being available to watch in the United States of America.

The Steven E. de Souza-directed film is an adaptation of Street Fighter 2, starring Jean-Claude Van Damme and Ming-Na Wen as Guile and Chun-Li. It was the first live-action film in the franchise, and its commercial success would pave the way for two other theatrical offerings, Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li and Street Fighter: Assassin's Fist.

The film made almost $100 million at the box office, with another $65 with home media sales, against a budget of $35 million. While commercially successful, plans for subsequent sequels were canceled. Legendary Entertainment has acquired the rights to the franchise and is currently developing a film in collaboration with Capcom.

Unfortunately, none of these movies were received particularly well, with no other follow-ups on the adaptations. There are, however, plenty of Street Fighter TV shows and animated films you can watch if the games aren’t doing it for you.

As far as those go, Street Fighter 6 is the latest installment that was released within the crowded environment of last year. The game competed against Mortal Kombat 1 for the attention of fighting game fans, with both received positively by their fans. Street Fighter 6 has continued to be supported by Capcom, with new characters getting added to the game post-launch. The game's third new DLC character, Ed, was added to the game last month, with Gouki being next this spring.
