It has taken nearly two decades for the movie to arrive in uncut format, but was it worth the wait? Find out in our Blu-ray Review of Street Fighter II: The Movie.

Synopsis:

Shadowlaw is an underground organization bent on world domination through drug smuggling, illegal weapons distribution and terrorism. Led by the evil M. Bison (Vega in the Japanese version), Shadowlaw hopes to increase their power by recruiting the world’s greatest street fighters. Their main target: Ryu a master of Shotokan Karate who roams all over the world to test his skills against other fighters. As a means to lure the elusive Ryu, Bison abducts his best friend, former martial arts champion Ken Masters, and uses him as bait. Interpol agent Chun-Li and U.S. Air Force pilot Guile team up to get to Ryu before Bison does and continues his reign of terror. Read more of this post

Unboxing: Street Fighter II: The Animated Movie (Blu-ray) [UK]

Manga Entetainment UK, in conjunction with Kaze UK, will be releasing Street Fighter II: The Movie onto Blu-ray on the 13th May 2013 and since our Review copy arrived early (and in complete form) we decided to take a closer look at the physical content via an unboxing video.

The box-art is identical to the French version, since it was authored and released into France via Kaze France and because of this traits of the french version have filtered through into this UK Release, meaning that included on the disc is French Audio (and French subtitles) along with trailers for French releases (including a trailer for Tekken: Blood Vegance).

There isn’t much to say about the unboxing, other than it comes in a red blu-ray case (instead of Blue) and it has incorrect running time details on the back of the box – either way its a nice little box and a iconic blu-ray release for Street Fighter fans.
