A WWE Smackdown vs. Raw 2011 player has recreated many of Street Fighter‘s characters in the game with amazing detail.
Street Fighter‘s characters have been represented in various forms of media across the years, but the montage of a WWE Smackdown vs. Raw 2011 creator named Jimmy might be one of their weirdest and coolest usages yet. He’s recreated many of Street Fighter‘s characters in the wrestling game, and it’s quite a sight to see the iconic figures act like Macho Man Randy Savage.
All told, Jimmy created more than 20 Street Fighter characters using the SvR 2011 character creator, and they’re just about perfect. I never thought I’d seen Akuma and Gouken or Ryu and Sagat hash out their differences in the wrestling ring, but that’s exactly what’s happening here.
Because of how good these characters look, it’s somewhat strange to see them with such lifelike animation. Instead of firing off chi and attacking each other with hundred-hand slaps, they’re shown engaging in various behaviors associated with the members of World Wrestling Entertainment.
However, Jimmy did add various move sets that are reminiscent of what Street Fighter‘s roster use in their own game, from basic attacks to special moves. M. Bison has a scissor kick, Sagat a tiger knee, Fei Long a three-punch combo, Zangeif a spinning piledriver, and Dan’s special moves are rightfully hilarious (4:05 in the video). He’s even included alternate costumes.
If the WWE actually featured Street Fighter characters, I think I would start watching wrestling again. Jimmy’s characters can be downloaded into your version of SvR 2011 by following the instructions in his YouTube video information.
