Street Fighter: The Movie, known in Japan as Street Fighter: Real Battle on Film (ストリートファイター リアルバトル オン フィルム), is a Sega Saturn fighting game developed by Capcom. Based on the 1994 film Street Fighter, the game is a reprogrammed port of the earlier Incredible Technologies arcade title Street Fighter: The Movie, and was first published in Japan by Capcom themselves in August 1995; a United States release would follow only weeks later by Acclaim Entertainment, who would go on to publish the game in Europe, Brazil, and Australia. Street Fighter: The Movie is most notable for using Mortal Kombat-like digitized photographs for its character sprites
The console Street Fighter: The Movie plays similarly to other Street Fighter games from this era (post Street Fighter II), with three punch and three kick buttons, which combined in various ways can unleash special attacks.
There is a "Super Combo" gauge which can be depleted by using certain Super Special moves and Super Moves. The Super Special moves are new to the series. When the Super Combo gauge is half full Super Special moves (moves performed by presing two attack moves while doing the motions of a special move) can be performed but will deplete the Super Combo gauge. When the Super Combo gauge is full Super Special moves will not deplete the bar. Also when the bar is full Super Moves can be done which require more complex button presses than either Special moves or Super Special moves. If the opponent is hit with a Super move at the end of the round the background will change to indicate it was used as the final move.
There are four game modes available, including the single player "Movie Battle" (Story Mode), "Street Battle" (similar to arcade mode in Street Fighter II), Vs. Mode (2 Player Vs. Mode), and Trial Mode (Street Fighter II arcade mode variant).
Street Fighter: The Movie takes cues from Mortal Kombat, creating its fighters by compiling digitised photographs and films of real-life actors. Unlike Mortal Kombat however, the majority of the cast from the film returned for this game. Exceptions include Raúl Juliá, who despite keen to reprise his role as M. Bison and had met with the development team, was too unwell and would later die of a stroke in October 1994. Robert Mammone who played Blanka in the movie is also absent, being replaced with his stunt double, presumably due to the character's complicated moveset.
While the cast of the movie is similar to Super Street Fighter II, Dhalsim and T. Hawk are not represented in the game, while Super Street Fighter II's Fei-Long was excluded from both. Akuma from Super Street Fighter II is also included (being portrayed by Ernie Reyes Sr. who did some of the film's stunts), as is Sawada, an original character specific to the film.

An oddball in the franchise, Street Fighter: The Movie ditches the cartoony style seen in Street Fighter games both before and since, using pre-rendered digitized graphics of characters from the 1994 live-action Street Fighter movie, which in turn was based on the video game, Street Fighter II. It is one of the few instances of a video game based on a movie based on a video game.
A different Street Fighter: The Movie, developed by Incredible Technologies, was released into the arcades some months prior.
In Europe, Street Fighter: The Movie was distributed in packaging similar to that of its North American counterpart - the only instance in the Saturn's library to opt for the elongated jewel case design rather than the bespoke Saturn cases seen with other software.
