                  1997                 When management of Culture Brain decide to move on the next revolution of Hiryu No Ken, the author decide to                                                             bring their character alive as they imagined in the Street Fighter EX.


                                           The game obviously looks great but the animation quality is also excellent. The motions and moves of the fighters are fluid                                            and flow beautifully. Explosive Tekken-style sparks, glowing illumination and rings of power are the order of the day when                                                     you smack or kick someone with extra force. In the picture to the left, Ryuhi kicks with a fiery explosion that causes a roiling                                            crimson cloud to erupt in his local vicinity. Ryuhi by the way, is this game's proverbial Ryu. He is the main character and has                                            been featured in all of the Hiryu No Ken game since the 8-bit Famicom days.
