The Street Fighter video game series has had a profound impact on the gaming industry, and the newly released Street Fighter 4 has marked a new high in the fighting genre. For those fortunate enough to track down a copy of the Collector’s Edition of Street Fighter 4 (there weren’t many in my area), Capcom included a supplemental anime film titled Street Fighter 4: The Ties That Bind. While not as entertaining as the prior Street Fighter anime films (including Street Fighter II: The Animated Movie, Street Fighter Alpha, and the sequel Street Fighter Alpha: Generations), The Ties That Bind is still a nice introduction to the new characters that populate the 4th installment of the video game series, and I hope to see more video game studios jump on the bandwagon by including a Blu-ray film along with the game.
