Animator Inspired By Daigo Vs. Justin Wong Street Fighter Match

One of the most famous moments in esports history is the Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike semifinal match from 2004. With only a pixel of health left, Daigo Umehara parried a slew of attacks from Wong before mounting an incredible comeback.

The fight will never cease to be remarkable.

Professional animator Alain Vu, who worked on Klaus, did a short take on the iconic comeback during his free time.

I love the retro art, the animation, and the style. If you are interested in seeing his process, here is Vu’s earlier passes at the sequence.
