The very first Street Fighter debuted in arcades in 1987, but series star Ryu was apparently born 21 July 1964. If our math is correct — and thanks to a calculator we can be certain it is — that makes Ryu 50 years old.
He’s definitely looking pretty good for someone of his age and he’s still kicking arse up and down the block. Ryu has appeared in each and every Street Fighter title as well as the anime series and the 1994 film in which he was played by Byron Mann.
Happy birthday Ryu!
