Official Press Release

Eagle One Media has teamed with CAPCOM® to produce a line of animated comic DVD based on the iconic video game property Street Fighter® for the retail market. The DVD series will utilize the acclaimed Street Fighter® comics published by Udon Studios and be presented as a direct adaptation in the form of an Eagle One Media animated comic production.

An Eagle One Media animated comic production utilizes the actual artwork and story content from a series of published comic books and with the addition of animation, motion-style techniques, character voice-over, music, and special effects, creates a fact-paced production that can be watched on any DVD device or made available for download. Each entertaining animated comic production DVD has a run time of 65 to 80 minutes and can be found at your local DVD store or on-line retailer.

The initial Street Fighter animated comic DVD, titled Street Fighter: Round One – FIGHT! will be released on February 3, 2009, ahead of the worldwide theatrical release of the live action motion picture Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun Li on February 27 and the highly anticipated Street Fighter IV video game February 17th.

In the universe of Street Fighter, fighters collide in a global battle for supremacy. From every corner of the world, fighters of every conceivable sort perform superhuman acts in their willing (or unwilling) participation in the Street Fighter Tournament-the contest being hosted by M. Bison, the sadistic dictator and leader of the underground Shadaloo criminal organization. Street Fighter, the legendary franchise by CAPCOM that revolutionized gaming and entertained players and fans for over a decade with its unforgettable cast of World Warriors, comes to DVD based on the bestselling comic series. A unique DVD series that will carry every pulse-pounding Dragon Punch and bone-crushing Sonic Boom intact, just like it was meant to be!

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 US Special Ops officer Guile who each bears their own personal grudge against the evil Shadaloo syndicate.
