Today may just be any other ordinary day... But for one video game character who has dedicated his entire life to the fight and finding answers through battle actually celebrates his fictional birthday today!
That's right... Street Fighter's own main man and protagonist - the Ansatsuken warrior known as Ryu, was born this day July 21st, and the occasion just comes right after the big annual fighting game event known as the Evolution Championship Series! Ever the recognizable figure and mostly used as an entry point fighter in the series, Ryu has constantly appeared in every single iteration of Street Fighter and its many spin-off and crossover games! He will make his presence felt once more as he joins the next battle and generation of World Warriors for Capcom's upcoming new fighter next year in Street Fighter V!
Here's an example of how the red bandana wearing warrior will play from this HD E3 2015 gameplay video of the much anticipated sequel!
And while we're all waiting for that in the meantime, let's take a trip back down memory lane... And see this Evolution 2009 video edited and made by Sonic Hurricane!
