Street Fighter: The Movie (not to be confused with Street Fighter II Movie) is a 2D fighting game developed by Incredible Technologies and released by Capcom for arcades in June 1995.
It is a video game adaptation of the 1994 action film Street Fighter (itself based on Capcom's Street Fighter II fighting game series), featuring digitized actors in a similar fashion to the Mortal Kombat series. Each fighter is portrayed by the same actor as in the film (with some exceptions).
Its gameplay loosely resembles Super Street Fighter II Turbo, with a greater emphasis on juggling and animation canceling. All of the returning Street Fighter characters gained new exclusive special and super moves, while the game incorporates new techniques (such as throw countering, low-vitality special moves, and a character-specific super move that restores vitality). The game also includes some new exclusive characters (including minor film character Sawada and masked Bison Trooper Blade).
The game was ported to the Sony PlayStation and Sega Saturn by Capcom on August 10, 1995 (with the overseas PS1 release delayed as one of the platform's launch titles). It was published by Acclaim overseas and was re-titled to Street Fighter: Real Battle on Film in Japan. While featuring the same digitized sprites as the arcade version, this version features a new gameplay engine that closely resembles Super Street Fighter II Turbo (with the addition of enhanced special moves, known as "super attacks"). In addition, it features different stages, a new soundtrack, an updated character roster, and a dedicated Story Mode.
Most of the roster from Super Street Fighter II Turbo appears in the original Arcade version of the game, with the only exceptions being Blanka, Dhalsim, Dee Jay, Fei Long, and T. Hawk. Both Blanka and Dee Jay were later added in the home versions. Each fighter is portrayed by the same actor as in the film, with the exception of Bison (who is played by the actor's stunt double due to his illness).
Both versions of the game include a new fighter: Japanese soldier Sawada (a minor character in the film played by Japanese actor Kenya Sawada). The arcade version also features its own exclusive character: the masked Bison Trooper Blade (played by the game's art director). The game also includes two hidden palette swapped variations of Blade (Arkane and Khyber), with a third one inaccessible through standard means.
It is the only game in the series where Balrog, Vega, and Bison are addressed by their swapped western names in the Japanese version (rather than their original names), requiring Capcom to put their original names alongside their western names in the Japanese instruction cards and manuals. The arcade version is also the only game in the series where Akuma is addressed by his western name in the Japanese version.
