Did you know that if developer Capcom's Street Fighter series of fighting games were a person, it could legally rent a car now? That frightens us, actually -- we've seen what they do to cars in those bonus levels.

To celebrate the Silver Anniversary, Capcom released a massive, fun-filled collector's editionArea 5 produced the feature-length documentary included in that set, and this episode, we sit down with three of the guys who made the retrospective. The video-production house's Cesar Quintero, Ryan O'Donnell, and  Jason Bertrand join GamesBeat editor-in-chief Dan "Shoe" Hsu to try to fit a quarter-century of Hadoukens into an hour. They almost make it.

This episode's topics:

  • Japanese vs. U.S. arcade culture
  • Area 5's favorite interviews from its Street Fighter documentary
  • Interesting stories that didn't quite make it into Area 5's movie
