If I remember correctly, Poison was removed because of violence against women. The whole transsexual thing was because of a failed attempt to turn her into a transsexual to get away with this "violence". In the end she was replaced, but in the original design she was very much a woman.

As for Sheng Long, that would be incredible to have him exist. Wasn't he supposed to be this all powerful being that had an over powered version of every signature attack in the game? It is hard to believe that he wouldn't be a disappointment after a rumour like that, and due to balance issues there is no way he will live up to that much hype.

Don't quote me on any of this. There is a good chance I made most of it up. lol

but to the best of my recollection. The master of Ryu and Ken was Gouki's (Akuma) older brother, Gouken.

I know things can be weird in video games as well as movies and other forms of entertainment,but come on now; it is a little crazy that poison character is a he/she.Anyway,I have played SF Since it first came out and it still is one of my top three fighting games of all time! I can't wait to play the new edition.
