New Street Fighter 5 stage is a cool throwback to the excellent Street Fighter 2 animated movie

Big scar.

If you ever watched the excellent Street Fighter 2 animated movie, you'll be familiar with its opening battle: a dramatic fight between Ryu and Sagat that saw the series star give the towering Thai the famous scar on his chest.

Now, Capcom has released a new stage for Street Fighter 5 that lets you recreate that fight.

The Field of Fate stage in Street Fighter 5 is a field of grass that billows in the wind under the cover of a night sky that pours with rain. This is the same setting for the fight between Ryu and Sagat that kicks off the animated movie - and sees Ryu's Dragon Punch split Sagat's chest open.

Field of Fate comes out 26th March priced $1.99 or 40,000 Fight Money.

While I'm reminded of the 1994 Street Fighter 2 animated movie, I'd like to point to what I think is the best fight in the film: this scrap between E. Honda and Dhalsim in which Dhalsim paralyses the sumo wrestler by moving his arms around slowly and making his eyes glow.
