O.K. so for those of you who were lucky enough to have been able to pick up an XBox360 this is for you!!!! If you play the XBox live arcade, you probably know that you can play the O.G. version of street fighterII head to head with people over the internet! If that's not awesome enough for you, capcom also added a new hidden character!!!! He's an ultimate fighting type character with slams and takedowns that rival those of the mighty Russian wrestler Zangief!!! all you have to do is beat the game without losing a round and when you play through a 2nd time place the cursor over Zangief at the caracter selection screen and hold down both shoulder buttons for 30 seconds, after that the new character will appear right under the Russian and you can select him!!! and the best thing about it is you only have to do it once because the live arcade records all your stats and achievements!!! I love capcom!!!

Alright, alright so not too many of you fell for it, but for those of you that did.....APRIL FOOLS!!!!!
This gag was totally inspired by the article that appeared in EGM years ago.... Me and my friends spent hours at the local 7-11 trying to beat every round with a perfect..... We wasted alot of money that month, but man was it fun!!! The "Shane" chracter is actually a close buddy of mine who trains MMA and has actually fought in Brazil!!! (Thats why I put him against Blanka) and I modified a character from another capcom game called "Saturday Night Slam Masters" to create him! Hope you guys like it!

I have to admit, I like to see some Slam Masters characters to be integrated into Street Fighter.

Primus i love this style of art! i know by today's standards the designs seem kinda goofy, but it's from a classic era. Cool OC!
RyuTheWeredragon Featured By Owner Mar 6, 2011
I know he's not a real character, but what do you imagine his moves would be? This is because I'm planning on including him among the Street Fighter section of fighters in my Dimensional Tournament story, he'd be under the sub-class "Original Characters" Alongside some of Shin Lee's characters and my own.

yeah...cause I was just wondering...who the pluck is be some body kick his ass so bad he could find change to continue lol
MDTartist83 Featured By Owner Mar 29, 2010   General Artist
Awesome! He kind a looks like one of the guys from the intro screen. More spesifically, the blonde haired guy who knocks out the opponent just before the title appears.

Timbo1834 Featured By Owner May 4, 2006  Professional Traditional Artist
ok the only flaw that i noticed in this is how shane's portrait doesn't cut off in that space before the character screen like blanka's does. ok enough of me being ainal, other than that it looks seemless.

TheBlizzardBuffalo Featured By Owner Apr 3, 2006
Great job! The character blends in really well with the others, if I didn't know any better I'd definately say that Capcom added him in.
CubaNectie Featured By Owner Apr 3, 2006  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Haha... that was a good one. Sheng Long, anybody? Hehe. I did notice that his vs portrait was edited from Ken's. But still, good work :D
mattcrap Featured By Owner Apr 2, 2006

AngelCrusher Featured By Owner Apr 1, 2006  Professional Filmographer
This guy is awesome to play as, and the animations are totally sweet, but he really stands out compared to the clasic stuff because of the quality they have made him in. First of all when I was on the character select screen, I thought it was Ken...silly me.

Really great screen shot. If only you captured him moving to show off that awesome move you said earlier. He makes the other characters seem like fools. ^_^
