Street Fighter Wiki

Final Fight: Streetwise is a 3D beat 'em up Final Fight game. It is a non-canonical sequel to the original Final Fight developed by the American team of Capcom Production Studio 8 (the developers of Final Fight Revenge).


Final Fight: Streetwise is a 3D beat 'em up game. The story mode, which is exclusively single player, has ten minigames, including cockroach stomping, arm-wrestling, slide puzzles, shooting contests and the classic car bash. Players earn money through pit fights and side missions, upgrading Kyle's moveset by training in various gyms in Metro City while progressing through the game. An 'instinct' system allows players to counter opponents' attacks, as well as make their attacks more powerful.

The arcade mode is a no-frills 3D brawler for 1 or 2 players. It does not have upgradable movesets, counters or instinct abilities. Kyle, Cody, Guy and Haggar are all playable characters in arcade mode. However, the game is over when the life bar is empty.

The game's save system can only be used once the player decides to quit the game. Progress will resume at the last checkpoint rather than the character's last position.

Kyle Travers is a streetwise underground pit-fighter resigned to making money in the fight clubs of Metro City. He has been fighting in his neighborhood for some time, building up a reputation and gaining a lot of money. His brother Cody has always been around for him, ever since they were kids, and countless times they helped each other through nasty scrapes in order to survive in the harsh streets. When Kyle and Cody were at Vanessa's bar minding their own business, a man known as Devin Aranoc appears and sends his goons to capture Cody. Kyle starts searching for his missing brother, knowing that he will be dealing with well-trained pros instead of the usual street gangs. To make matters worse, he ends up dealing with a powerful new drug known as glow and those involved in its creation.

Before Streetwise entered development, Capcom Studio 8 worked on a separate game for the PlayStation 2, titled Final Fight: Seven Sons, which had different characters, a different gameplay system, a simulated "railcam" and cel-shaded graphics, the latter two of which served to mimic the aesthetics of Final Fight and its SNES sequels.[1]

A promotional comic that contained concept art, illustrated by artist and lead voice actor Trent Kaniuga, was included with preorders of the game.

As seen in the promotional comic, Sodom and Poison were initially planned to be in Streetwise but were excised. It is unknown what their intended roles in the game were, or why they were cut from the final version. Additionally, Mike Haggar and Guy were supposed to have more screen-time, but several cutscenes featuring them were eventually removed.[2]


As well as remixes of the original game's themes, the soundtrack was provided by RZA, Mos Def, Fear Factory, Slipknot, Soulfly, Dub Pistols, Shadows Fall, Opeth, Lil' Flip, Nappy Roots, Dujeous and Gizmachi.


Upon release, the game received largely negative reviews worldwide, with an average score of 47% at GameRankings,[3] and failed to achieve mainstream success. Many video game review websites and magazines, including IGN,[4] GameSpot,[5] GameSpy,[6] and Game Informer,[7] have made several complaints about flaws in the game, usually ending with an unfavorable review. Many reviewers claimed that, while the game offers a simple and functional gameplay in the same vein of the original arcade game, it is easily overshadowed by the flaws in other departments. ScrewAttack named Final Fight: Streetwise as 6th on their list of "Top 10 Worst 2D to 3D Games" and also placed the game in the number five spot on their "Top 10 Worst Reboots or Remakes" list. Despite the negativity, it received mixed reception from fans.


  • This is the only game in the Final Fight series to have never been released in Japan.
  • While Final Fight: Streetwise is generally considered a non-canonical installment in the Final Fight series, Kyle is mentioned in Cody's Shadaloo C.R.I. profile. The English version states that he has yet to appear in a game, possibly indicating that Streetwise is not considered canon.[8] The original Japanese version, however, has no such line, simply indicating he's Cody's brother.[9] Kyle later got a profile of his own as well.
  • A poster of Ōkami and Sengoku BASARA can be seen in the Japantown stores. Also, the corridors from Guy's mansion has several paintings from Ōkami.
