Street Fighter II Movie (ストリートファイターⅡムービー) is an full-motion video game (marketed as an "interactive movie") for the Sega Saturn based on the 1994 Street Fighter II: The Animated Movie. The game was shown at E3 1995 under the title of Street Fighter II: The Interactive Movie, but ultimately ended up being released only in Japan.


Vega, leader of the enigmatic crime syndicate known as Shadaloo, is recruiting the world's greatest fighters. He has deployed cyborgs throughout the world to seek out warriors with powerful ki and analyze them.

Character profile

The game is an interactive movie that mostly consists of watching scenes from the anime. It includes many scenes from the movie, split across two discs, and follows the same plot, and it also contains some new scenes made specifically for the game. The player assumes the role of a monitor cyborg that has been secretly developed by Shadaloo. The Cyborg must develop its combat capabilities by analyzing the fighting techniques of the best martial artists around the world in order to gain enough strength to challenge Ryu. For example, if a scene is shown where a character performs a kick, taking a picture of the character's kick increases the Cyborg's kicking ability. The Cyborg's capabilities are divided into six different categories: Punch, Kick, Throw, Special Attack, Defense, and Speed. Since the player can only take a certain amount of pictures per scene (shown as a red number in the bottom-left of the screen), the player must choose which categories to prioritize.

The Cyborg can bring up its crosshair display by holding A, then move the crosshairs using the D-Pad and take a picture with B. A sound effect rings out when an ability has been successfully analyzed. The player can bring up a profile of whichever characters are on-screen with C. Pausing the game with  START  brings up a view of the Cyborg's levels (with the yellow bars for each category filling with red as they are increased) and provides a password for use in the game's Battle Mode. The player can also save the game to the Saturn's internal memory or a backup cartridge from this screen.

While the majority of the game is watching scenes from the movie, the final battle between the Cyborg and Ryu is a one-on-one fighting segment. This fight plays the same as Super Street Fighter II X, including the presence of a Super Combo gauge but without the Turbo game speed. Although the player takes pictures of numerous fighters over the course of the game, the Cyborg's normal and special moves are identical to Ken's moveset, including his Super Combo, the Shouryuu Reppa. This match consists of only a single round, and the player has one attempt to defeat Ryu. There are three different endings depending on whether the Cyborg loses to Ryu, defeats him, or defeats him without taking damage.

When fighting, the Cyborg moves with Left and Right and crouches with Down. It jumps with Up and flips back and forth with Up-left and Up-right. Punches are done with X (jab), Y (medium), and Z (fierce) and kicks are done with A (short), B (medium), and C (roundhouse). Light attacks are faster and hard attacks deal more damage. Blocking is done by holding the D-Pad away from the opponent, which can be done while standing or crouching. Throws and grabs are done by holding Left or Right when next to an opponent and pressing a medium or hard punch or kick button. Throws cannot be blocked, but the Cyborg can recover from a throw in the air and reduce the damage taken by likewise holding Left or Right and pressing a medium or hard punch or kick button.

In the Battle Mode, the player can test the Cyborg's current abilities against a virtual hologram of Ryu. This mode can also be played with a second player (who controls a second Cyborg). The player must input a password for the Cyborg's capabilities in order to play the Battle Mode. These fights are played to the best of three rounds. The game also includes a database that allows players to read information about any of the 16 characters from the Super Street Fighter II roster or view concept artwork for the movie.


Note: Move lists assume that the character is facing right. When facing left, Left and Right should be reversed.
