If you ever watched the excellent Street Fighter 2 animated movie, you’ll be familiar with its opening battle: a dramatic fight between Ryu and Sagat that saw the series star give the towering Thai the famous scar on his chest.
Now, Capcom has released a new stage for Street Fighter 5 that lets you recreate that fight.
The Field of Fate stage in Street Fighter 5 is a field of grass that billows in the wind under the cover of a night sky that pours with rain. This is the same setting for the fight between Ryu and Sagat that kicks off the animated movie – and sees Ryu’s Dragon Punch split Sagat’s chest open.
Relive the epic intro to the Street Fighter II: The Animated Movie with the Field of Fate stage in Street Fighter V. This is where Ryu gave Sagat the scar on his chest and where one of Street Fighter’s greatest rivalries was born. pic.twitter.com/KXHXVpfMO4

Field of Fate comes out 26th March priced $1.99 or 40,000 Fight Money.
While I’m reminded of the 1994 Street Fighter 2 animated movie, I’d like to point to what I think is the best fight in the film: this scrap between E. Honda and Dhalsim in which Dhalsim paralyses the sumo wrestler by moving his arms around slowly and making his eyes glow.
