Capcom Arcade Stadium version of Street Fighter II removes the "Rising Sun" imagery from E. Honda's stage

Street Fighter II aficionados have noticed something different with the version of Street Fighter II in Capcom Arcade Stadium.

As you might have spotted above, E. Honda's stage is looking a little different. The original version of the game featured imagery from the Rising Sun flag, which became known as the flag of the Imperial Japanese Army and Navy. This is a controversial image in parts of East Asia, which led to Capcom's removal of the imagery.

Capcom has altered E. Honda's stage to remove the imagery in other recent re-releases of Street Fighter II as well.

Street Fighter content teased for Fortnite

Ryu's ready to get sweaty

Those who've been playing Fortnite recently have no doubt seen the portals that are popping up around the map. Those portals gave us a tip on Tron content being added to the game, and now they're showing a completely different tease.

As you can see in the video above, the portals are now showing off a tease of Ryu's arena from Street Fighter. That seems like a pretty solid tease for a Ryu skin in the game, but it's likely there will be a few other Street Fighter skins added as well. Expect an official announcement of Street Fighter content from Epic very soon.

New code discovered for Street Fighter Alpha 2 25 years after its launch

The fighter's code

Street Fighter Alpha 2 came to the Super Nintendo 25 years ago, and its taken that long for one of the game's cheat codes to be discovered.

Street Fighter fan Gizaha went poking around the game to try and reverse engineer the experience, which is what led him to the code's discovery. This code allows you to unlock Shin Akuma for the game's roster. In order to make the code work, you have to complete Arcade Mode with a new high score. After that, enter the initials “KAJ” and then return to the title screen. With the player-two controller, hold down the L, X, Y and Start buttons while the player-one controller is used to select Versus mode. Finally, either player can hold the start button while selecting Akuma to unlock Shin Akuma.
