This is an original Japanese poster printed in 1996 for the promotion of "SStreet Fighter EX" in Japan. This poster was used at the time in arcades. This poster is in superb condition for its age and is incredibly rare. Video arcade posters were printed in FAR fewer numbers than film posters.
Street Fighter EX (ストリートファイターEX, Sutorīto Faitā EX) is a 2D head-to-head fighting game with 3D graphics, originally released as a coin-operated arcade game for the Sony ZN hardware in 1996. It is a spin-off of the Street Fighter series co-produced by Capcom with Arika and was the first game in the series to feature 3D polygon graphics. It was followed by an updated arcade version titled Street Fighter EX Plus, as well as a PlayStation-exclusive home console version titled Street Fighter EX Plus α, both released in 1997. A Nintendo 64 version was also announced for release in 1997, but later cancelled.
In Japan, Game Machine listed Street Fighter EX on their February 15, 1997 issue as being the second most-successful arcade game of the year. Game Machine also listed Street Fighter EX Plus on their May 15, 1997 issue as being the sixth most-successful arcade game of the year.
