Street Fighter II Reimagined As A Rock Opera, In Three Acts

Street Fighter II Reimagined as a Rock Opera, in Three Acts

Seven years ago, an indie band in Texas joked among themselves that the Street Fighter continuity would be fertile soil for an old-fashioned rock opera. Three albums later, they've finished the story they want to to tell.

It's the tale of Ken and Chun Li, primarily, though all of the other characters from the Street Fighter II roster cameo in the story. Ken and Chun Li are the protagonists, with Chun Li out to avenge her father's death and Ken embroiled in some kind of jealous rivalry with Ryu.

Street Fight! offers seven tracks on its first two albums and 11 on its third, with seven-minute finales in the second and third editions. You may listen to and download them from Bandcamp. (Round One, Round Two, Round Three)
