- —Game Announcer
The Game Announcer, also known as Ring Announcer (リングアナウンサー Ringu Anaunsā?) and Narrator, is a voice that provides all of the game's commentary, and has been a main feature throughout the Street Fighter series.
The announcer is a disembodied voice. Its exact tone often varies with (and sometimes within) the game and/or series. For example, in Marvel vs. Capcom, the voice is that of a young female, while in Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike, the voice is closer to that of a black male.
The Game Announcer signals the start and end of a match, among other things. The announcer is also known as the referee of the match.
