    Street Fighter V: 36 Million Game Sales Over 80 Titles

    After the success of Street Fighter IV and its countless spin-offs, it was almost guaranteed there would be a fifth numbered entry in the brawler’s paradise. For Street Fighter V to be exclusive to the PlayStation 4, though, was a genuine surprise even to experienced analysts of the industry. No Street Fighter game has been confined to a single console, bar the second version of Street Fighter III and the EX 3D spin-offs. Even Street Fighter II, the game associated with the SNES, came out on plenty of other formats.

    The wonderful world of Street Fighter, explored through the medium of pictures, numbers and colours. Enjoy!

    Our online poll to see which characters players most wanted to see in Street Fighter V attracted over 70,000 votes. If you ignore SNK and Arika characters (Capcom don’t own the rights to them, after all), Q came out on top with Alex a close second. This is how the top ten turned out…

    Almost 150 people used the ‘Other’ category in our character poll to request Final Fight star Mike Haggar for Street Fighter V he even managed to beat ten legacy SF characters.
