Legendary Entertainment's film adaptation of iconic Capcom video game franchise "Street Fighter" has landed a March 20, 2026 release date from Sony. 

The film is co-developed and produced with Capcom.

Legendary nabbed the film and television rights to the highly popular gaming series in 2023. 

"Street Fighter" is one of the more enduring fighting video game franchises of all time. 

It began life with the 1987 arcade game Street Fighter, and set a high water mark for arcade fighting games with Street Fighter II. 

The game, released in 1991, was the first to offer a choice of characters and fighting techniques, revolutionizing one-on-one play.

"Street Fighter II" became a phenomenon, with Capcom unleashing countless special editions and remakes. In all, the franchise has sold 49 million units worldwide, with a new installment, Street Fighter 6, came out last year. 

It also spawned other games, spin-offs and crossovers featuring characters like Ryu, Ken, Chun-Li, Guile and M. Bison. 

Capcom is behind other popular games like “Resident Evil” and “Monster Hunter.”

The franchise was adapted into a 1994 movie starring Jean-Claude Van Damme, while a 2009 feature "Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li" starred Kristin Kreuk.

While game adaptations were often synonymous with box office failures, recent years have seen a slew of successes in the genre, including “Sonic the Hedgehog” and its 2022 sequel, Tom Holland’s “Uncharted,” “Dungeons and Dragons: Honor Among Thieves” and the “Super Mario Bros. Movie.” 

In the TV world, “The Last of Us” and “Fallout” adaptations have proven popular as well.

Legendary, which has a distribution deal with Sony, has experience with adaptations of all kinds, including novels, comic books and more with “Dune,” “Godzilla vs. Kong,” “Pokemon: Detective Pikachu” and “Enola Holmes.” 

The company cut ties with Warner Bros., which released “Dune: Part Two” earlier this year.
