In December 2012, we decided to create a real life Street Fighter match when you could once again decide your outcome. Ryu, Ken, Chun Li, Hadouken…

Mention the names above to any kid born in the 80s or 90s, it’ll be sure to bring back fond memories of their childhood and the carefree times when life was about school and games. At that age, we didn’t have much control over a lot of things. Video games gave us a sense of control and belief that the outcome of the game was in our hands.

If you can recall, December 2012 was a low month when everyone was talking about the end of the world. Although it ended up not ending, it clearly left an impact on everyone.

We (the folks at RA) wanted to bring people together to send out the message that “the city is still alive”.

The spirit we used to hold up high when we were young, playing Street Fighter. Hence, we decided to create a real life street fighter match when you could once again decide your outcome. Well, specifically the outcome of your character.

And so, KL Street Fighter took place on 29th of December, the last Saturday of 2012. We held it at two locations – Pasar Seni and Taman Tun Dr Ismail Park with the aim of spreading some positive vibes to the random Pak Mat, Ah Keong and Mariammah on the street.

Credit goes out to all of the team members. The characters (Amir, Navid, Yee Cheng, Nadirah, Syazwan), the camera team (Feixiang, Vince, Clement, Qikit, Dominic, Doris), the prop team (Sara, Fairuz, Acacia), the transport team (Redza, Yiing Huey), the costume team (Melly, Stephanie). Without them, this project would never have been this exciting.
