Retro Gaming Ep: 10 Streetfighter ストリートファイタon Atari ST - this is taken from disk and ported through a video capture card no Emulators here !
treet Fighter (ストリートファイター Sutorīto Faitā?), commonly abbreviated as SF or スト (Suto), is a fighting video game franchise by Capcom. The second game in the series is credited with establishing many of the conventions of the one-on-one fighting genre. The game's playable characters originate from different countries around the world, each with a unique fighting style. It is Capcom's second best-selling franchise, having had significant success worldwide. The first game in the series was released in 1987.
Street Fighter, designed by Takashi Nishiyama and Hiroshi Matsumoto, made its debut in arcades, in 1987. In this game, the player takes control of martial artist Ryu, who competes in a worldwide martial arts tournament, spanning five countries and 10 opponents. A second player can join in at any time and take control of Ryu's American rival, Ken.
The player can perform three types of punch and kick attacks, each varying in speed and strength, and three special attacks: the Hadouken, Shoryuken, and Tatsumaki Senpukyaku. These are performed by executing special button combinations with the controls
Street Fighter was ported to many popular home computer systems of the time, like the PC. In 1988, it was released on the NEC Avenue TurboGrafx-CD console under the name Fighting Street. Street Fighter was also later included in Capcom Classics Collection: Remixed for the PlayStation Portable and Capcom Classics Collection Vol. 2 for the PlayStation 2 and Xbox
Released as an arcade game in 1987, Street Fighter is home to a ton of "firsts". It was Capcom's first ever one-on-one fighter. It was the first Street Fighter game, a series that has spawned over a dozen sequels and successors. It was the first fighting game to feature the special attacks that are now a genre staple (think down + up + punch, etc). It was the first fighting game to use six buttons. And it was, believe it or not, the first game Mega Man creator Keiji Inafune ever worked on for Capcom (he drew the game's character portraits).
For those who have only played Street Fighter II (or the games that came afterwards), Street Fighter I is - in one of its two versions - a fairly similar game. You've got the same six-button layout, there's the same concept of travelling around the world kicking some ass and even some of the characters are the same: you can play as either Ryu or Ken, and the game's final boss is Sagat. Ryu and Ken look the same, and also have the same special moves like the Dragon Punch (except in Street Fighter I the required combos for these moves wasn't printed on the arcade cabinet, meaning you either had to fluke them or learn from an experienced player).
