The Street Fighter series has been going for a long time, and is still hailed as one of the most important fighting game series out there. The original game appeared in video game arcades (remember those, dear reader?) many years ago, probably long before many of you were even born. I still have fond memories as a youngster of watching expert players pull off those moves with the finesse and grace of a ballet dancer, and then trying to emulate those moves myself. This, of course, came with a limited measure of success. It eventually also became a running gag that Capcom had no idea how to count to three, given that the highly-successful Street Fighter II was followed with Super Street Fighter II, Street Fighter 2 Championship Edition, Street Fighter II Alpha, and so on. Now, many years later, we’ve not only seen Street Fighter III, but also Street Fighter Alpha, Street Fighter IV, and now we have the chance to review the latest game in the series, Street Fighter V.

According to Uncyclopedia, zombies are defined thus:
Zombies are an improved form of human that are often found engaging in mindless consumerism, discussions about American Idol, neoconservatism and the consumption of brains or raping and mutilating other motherfucking human beings.
The zombies created by concept artist from Manuel Augusto Dischinger Moura (or Manuhell for brevity’s sake) go a step further – they know Kung Fu and other crazy martial arts. The 27-year-old from São Paulo, Brazil has taken some characters from a popular fighting game and given them a zombie makeover.
