Chun-li centered movie??? I'm sold. How did it take that long!!! Knowing the power of this character (in terms of charisma and fandom), this is a fairly safe choice. I'm really surprised it has not happened before, judging the weight given to the character (remember the slogan "She is back" for Street Fighter III 3rd Strike).
New SF game??? I'm prepared for a 20th Anniversary re-edition of the original Street Fighter, or something like that. This works as a perfect excuse to offer the same old product in a new and fancy package. I find pretty unlikely that this would be a step forward in the saga.
New anime??? ...in my opinion, the anime produced from the game so far did not decently managed the characters nor the plot correctly. I hope this tendency ends with this new announced anime.
Yay! That sounds great! Well, maybe the Chun-Li movie gets really lame, but if Capcom makes it with some effort, maybe it turns out to be a pretty decent movie (it's live action from what I read, right? That's a little scary, but if Sailor Moon managed to get good in live action, why not Chun-Li??).
About the anime, that's great news as well. SF the movie (the anime one, not that pile of garbage starred by Van Damme) and SF II-V weren't very loyal to the actual game story, but nevertheless I liked them very much! Let's hope it fits the game plot this time!
About the game, I really hope it's really a NEW game. Come on, SFII is a great legendary game, everybody knows, but it has already been milked to death... let it go, Capcom, people want SFIV...
BTW, Chun-Li will face FFX/FFX-2's Yuna in the GameFAQs Character Battles on Thursday. Who do you guys think will win the poll? I read that RPG characters (and mainly FF ones) usually are the winners, but Chun-Li managed to defeat Lara Croft in a previous poll; plus, she's one of the original video game gals, so... who knows??
I can be any person in the world ... maybe I'm this person right in front of you ... or maybe I'm not !!
