Streetfighter Ryu is destined for a journey of self-discovery. If victorious, he'll be able to control the dark energy threatening to consume him, but there's a problem--Ryu's confidence level isn't what it used to be. Tensions mount as Ryu, along with his allies (some old, some new), presses forward in his efforts to confront Akuma, the bloodthirsty master of the Dark Hadou. United, Ryu's team does what they can to curtail the force that threatens to destroy them all. Street Fighter Alpha is based on the popular Street Fighter II: V series.
