The initial STREET FIGHTER DVD, titled STREET FIGHTER: ROUND ONE -- FIGHT! will be released on February 3, 2009, in conjunction with the worldwide theatrical release of the live action film STREET FIGHTER: THE LEGEND OF CHUN LI on February 27, 2009.
In the universe of STREET FIGHTER, fighters of every size, shape and color collide in a global battle for supremacy. From every corner of the world, martial artists, boxers, wrestlers and fighters of every conceivable sort perform superhuman acts in their willing (or unwilling) participation in the Street Fighter Tournament, a contest hosted by M. Bison, the sadistic dictator and leader of the underground Shadaloo criminal organization.
In STREET FIGHTER: ROUND ONE -- FIGHT!, Ryu and Ken set out to investigate the murder of their martial arts master. Their search for answers takes them to Japan, where M. Bison and his assorted minions, including Cammy, Vega, and Sagat, keep a close eye on Ryu for reasons unknown. This draws the attention of up-and-coming Hong Kong Interpol agent Chun-Li and U.S. Special Ops Officer Guile, who each bear their own personal grudge against the evil Shadaloo syndicate.
