You Need These Street Fighter Tidbits

KenCapcom's Street Fighter franchise turns twenty-five years old this year, but how much do you really know about the series?  Yes, you know the old Sheng Long story from the Electronic Gaming Monthly days and you know how M. Bison, Vega, and Balrog all had their names shuffled when Street Fighter II left Japan.  However, do you know that at one point in the Street Fighter IV planning process, Abel was a woman?  Or that Chun-Li turns up in the background of a level in Final Fight 2 at a little sidewalk cafe?  Are you aware that Dee Jay's original name was Mantis?  Would you finally like to know that the mode select cursors from the Super NES version of Street Fighter II and Street Fighter II Turbo are taken from Capcom's own Side Arms: Hyper Dyne arcade game?  Learn all of these little factoids and many more over at Street Fighter Miscellany where lots of minor but interesting details about the franchise are cataloged and dissected.  Hurry on over and you can watch the introductory movie from Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix that was cut from the final version of the game.  There's plenty of fascinating minutiae for you to explore in between tournaments.
