The series ran for two seasons. Production of the show moved from Graz Entertainment to InVision Entertainment for the second season. Animation duties also moved from Mad House to Hong Kong Japan Sunrise, resulting in a slight change in overall style and the character designs. Over its run, the show incorporated all the characters from Super Street Fighter II: Turbo as well as from the Street Fighter Alpha series and other Capcom games like Saturday Night Slam Masters, Magic Sword and Cyberbots: Full Metal Madness. The episode “Final Fight” served as an adaptation of that game with the additional inclusion of the Street Fighter characters (Final Fight characters were starting to be gradually integrated into the Street Fighter game series). Season 2 saw Guile’s role reduced somewhat as a couple of episodes focused on the other Fighters. Cammy became part of a season-long subplot where she was brainwashed into serving Bison (as she had been in the games). Street Fighter also participated in the crossover with the other USA Network cartoons in “The Warrior King” episode; which is probably the closest we’ll ever see to a Street Fighter/Mortal Kombat crossover.
|The 2015 re-release DVD.|
Despite lasting two seasons, the series was largely negatively received by fans due to poor dialogue and overall writing. ADV Films released the entire series on two sets called Code of Honor and Soul Powers in 2003; both are currently out of print, although Discotek Media had announced plans to re-release the series in 2015. The series was also released as part of the 25th Anniversary Collector’s Set on Blu-Ray in 2012.
