Capcom’s popular Street Fighter series is a household name at this point, due in no small part to the hilarious amount of rereleases and sequels that the series has received over its long run. The Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection aims to celebrate this legacy when it launches later this month, and in the run up to the game’s release, Capcom has begun a video series in which it reflects on the development and design of the main Street Fighter games.

The first video is posted above, detailing the original game in the series and its successor, which hit it big in arcades and laid the groundwork for all that would follow. It’s an interesting look at a key part of gaming history and goes to show how much things have both changed and remained the same as the series has worn on.
