Street Fighter Online: Mouse Generation (ストリートファイター オンライン マウスジェネレーション Sutorīto Faitā Onrain Mausu Jenerēshon?) is a fighting game produced by Daletto (a joint venture of Capcom and Games Arena) in association with Revoltech (an action-figure company), released for the PC in 2008. The game uses a PC mouse for combat, and the characters are customizable to some degree. The player chooses between action-figure versions of Street Fighter characters, licensed characters based on novels, manga and anime such as the characters based on the works by Wuxia novelist Louis Cha, and one real-life person.
While Mouse Generation can arguably be considered a Street Fighter game (as the name would suggest), it is actually a crossover game (like X-Men vs. Street Fighter or Street Fighter X Tekken), and as such it is not canon to the Street Fighter universe.

Fighters are controlled by mouse movements, mouse buttons and the scroll wheel. Characters in the game were apparently action-figure versions of the actual characters, using Revoltech's action-figure 3D engine. As such, fighter's body parts could be switched and customized. The character models were designed to look like the action-figure of the characters, with blocky limbs and visible joint screws. While this engine allowed for "maximum flexibility", it made the character models "revolting".
The game was free to play. Daletto's revenue came from micro-transactions, through a store, and through in-game Gashapon dispensers (licensed from Bandai). Players were able to purchase extra body parts and outfits, to further customize their characters. Some purchasable items were fairly abstract, such as squid-shaped hats, as a cross-promotion with pre-existing squid-shaped USB thumb drives.
