I Am Street Fighter documentary explores the series' roots

I Am Street Fighter, a documentary previously included in the $150 Street Fighter 25th Anniversary Collector's Set, has been posted for all to see (without the steep price tag) on YouTube.

The 72-minute documentary, created by the San Francisco-based production company Area 5, touches on the development of the series, and features testimonials from fans, professional players, producer Yoshinori Ono and former community manager Seth Killian. The franchise's whole history is explored, from its inception to its rise in popularity in arcades to its emergence as a thriving eSports battlefield — there's even a second-by-second breakdown of the infamous Evo Moment #37.
