Speaking with Gamedaily, Patrick Aiello, producer on the upcoming Street Fighter movie, The Legend of Chun-Li, says that the game and the film will release simultaneously next March.

“Capcom is releasing Street Fighter IV in 2009, which is the 20th anniversary of the game,” said Aiello.

“The film and game release dates will coincide, but I’m not certain how much of the game will coincide with the story because ours is a very partitioned off origin story of the Street Fighter universe.

He added: “So the release dates will coincide, elements between the two will coincide, but in terms of them relating to each other perfectly, I don’t believe that’s the case.”
