Everyone knows that the Street Fighter tournament is an international event, but I guess I didn’t quite realize how much so. This map from GamesRadar shows exactly where all the Street Fighter characters are from, though a few remain without a country of origin.
As you might expect, China, the US and Japan boats big numbers (of course, the fat guy is from America), but there are a tonfrom other places as well. I guess I hadn’t realized M. Bison was from Thailand with Sagat, though I never really spent that much time paying attention to actual plotlines in Street Fighter.
Who the hell was Mike? It’s just some guy wearing jeans! Same goes for Shirtless Joe there. Good thing creativity kicked in for later games.
