Hearing the name Street Fighter for people who play console and arcade games before sure will flash you Ryu or Ken or other Street Fighter characters on the battle stage, fighting one to one with another opponent.

Meet the first ever and only Street Fighter action adventure game!
Unfortunately, the game is not a new game that recently published. The first and only Street Fighter action adventure game ever released was back during NES/Famicom time, in 1990 to be exact. Play as a character named Ken – though it’s not the same Ken we know on Street Fighter – with red gi (jacket) and blonde hair – but the english localization made them the same Ken, in this game with cyborg body and take place twenty years in the future (the game was released on 1990 and the title is 2010).
The mission is to save the Earth from cyborg invasion by pursuing whoever has steal Ken’s human-cyborg research. Each stages, Ken is given limited time to defeat the main designated enemy and take the necessary energy to open a trans dimensional portal to the next stage.
