Guess Who Tops the Fan-Favorite "Street Fighter" Character List

Capcom release full results following PAX East portion

Capcom kicked off a poll last month, asking both Japanese and English fans who their favorite characters from the Street Fighter franchise are. After unveiling a partial list at PAX East, the full results are now available, and for the most part the top picks are business as usual.


Due to the sheer amount of votes cast by English users, the top of the Overall and English lists are identical. Things get interesting, however, with the Japanese list, which sees Karin from Street Fighter Alpha 3 dethroning Ryu. Looks like a bunch of Karin fans got organized for this one. 


Most of the rest of the Japanese top 5 keeps things different, too, with Ingrid and R. Mika joining Ryu and Cammy. Check out the overall top 10 and the top 5 characters from both English and Japanese rankings below, and be sure to head to the link above for the full list.
