In 2000, ''Street Fighter [=EX3=]'' came out exclusively for the UsefulNotes/PlayStation2. A tag team system was added, complete with various new gameplay mechanics such as [[CombinationAttack Meteor Tag Combos]], but it wasn't well received. Everyone from ''[=EX2=] Plus'' (except Hayate) returned, as did Sakura. Ace, the sole new character for the game, was a character that can have moves added to his move list. Guard Breaks were replaced by the somewhat similar Surprise Blow, losing their unblockable properties but able to stun crouching opponents and floor airborne ones as well as costing no meter to use, while Momentary Combos, two special inputs for each character allowing them to cancel from one special move to another unique special with the press of a precisely-timed single punch or kick, were added.

On September 19, 2016, Capcom [[http://game.capcom.com/cfn/sfv/column-130853.html released a profile and artwork on Darun Mister]] which also mentioned Pullum Purna and connected him to the plot of ''VideoGame/StreetFighterV''.

[[SequelGap In 2017]], Arika [[https://twitter.com/miharasan/status/847840152223268864 announced]] ''Street Fighter [=EX4=]'' with [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o2x8c-RFGnA gameplay]] footage to show off. They announced it on AprilFoolsDay, leading many to believe it was a joke. Others thought the game looked [[OverlyPrePreparedGag way too real and polished]] to possibly be a joke, and as it turns out, the game is indeed playable. The game currently has no funding or publisher, and they're possibly looking into crowdfunding the title.

* BlindIdiotTranslation: The original game had Blair's nameplate under the life gauge spelled as "Brair."



* CanonImmigrant: As of ''Street Fighter V'', it's revealed on Capcom's CFN website that [[spoiler: Zangief gave his Chess Piece to Darun Mister to keep safe]]. The CFN website has since added other characters from the ''EX'' series, implying that while their game of origin has no place in the ''Street Fighter'' canon, the characters themselves are still a part of the ''Street Fighter'' universe, even if they never show up as playable characters again.
