Ken Masters started as a Blonde Head-swap of Ryu in the first Street Fighter game, but as the series progresses, the two best friends go in different directions in life. Ryu became a world-traveling hermit who trains to be the best Martial Artist. He wanted to win tournaments, meet rivals that were beyond stronger than him and compete. While Ken is an heir to a million-dollar company, Without a doubt, He cannot live Ryu’s lifestyle even if he wanted to be the greatest fighter too. He is the Number one Martial Artist in America but has time for his business and family.
Street Fighter Timeline Explained
Street Fighter characters come and go, but sometimes they return depending on how popular they are. Unpopularity, though, does not mean a character won’t return. Before Street Fighter V was under development, Capcom made a poll, and Birdie was the least popular on that poll, but that gave Capcom a troll movie to make him return.
Tekken 7 removed the Denuvo Anti-tamper on the Steam version of the game back in October. Denuvo Anti-Tamper is protected from piracy so the game and its DLC cannot be pirated. Usually, Games removes it if they will stop having DLC support. Most likely Namco will now focus on their next fighting game project. It could be Tekken 8, Tekken Tag tournament for or Tekken X Street Fighter. It already sold over 7 million units and until now it is still an active part of the esports scene.
I made a 2-part article before that shows the real-life people Street Fighter characters are inspired from. Some examples in that article are the real-life people that inspired the creations of characters like Ryu and Ken. Not All Street Fighter.
The Street Fighter Universe expands in multiple Capcom games. This Capcom Franchise has shared Universe with multiple games. Akira Kazama just debuted as a Street Fighter character. However, she is not the only Rival schools character on the roster. Sakura joined the roster of Rival schools because Capcom wanted Street Fighter players to play Rival schools.
Akira Kazama may not be the main character of Rival Schools: United by Fate. She is now the most relevant character from the franchise. However, She just debuted her Street Fighter V trailer.
Luke is the final DLC character in Street Fighter V. He is a blond American MMA fighter who got fans theorizing about his Origins. He will be following the release of Street Fighter III character Oro and Rival Schools character Akira. Most male Street Fighter V is Bulky muscular but he is leaner. He has muscles but he is slimmer than the likes of Ryu and Ken. Fans have many theories about Luke.
Tekken X Street Fighter is not dead!
It’s that time of year again…..a few hours before E3, which means it’s time for Arcade1Up’s annual dump of new products. They’re stretching the definition of “new” this go-round, though.
If you missed the first part of this article, you can find it here. There you can read about the people who inspired the creation of Ryu,Ken,Sagat,Zangief and Crimson Viper.
The very first fighting game is a 1976 arcade game titled Heavyweight champion. It started it all, but it is Street Fighter that defined the genre. Without Street Fighter, there will be no Mortal Kombat, King of Fighters, nor Tekken. Many Street Fighter characters are so Iconic that even people who don’t play the game knows their name. There is no way in H.e double hockey sticks Nicki Minaj plays this game, but she knows who Chun-li is. I want to include the first lady of fighting games, but sadly she won’t fit this article. There are Street Fighter characters based on Anime and Manga characters. Meanwhile, there are original characters based on the Japanese understanding of a stereotype of a national from a country they represent. There are characters though who are based from real existing people and yes there is no permission for their likeness.
