The fight is a form of communication. It can lead to understanding. It holds a meaning deeper than mere words. Looks like I'll be sparring with a lot of fighters this time. And I expect I'll meet some old friends again, as well. Interacting with these fighters will guide me further down the path of becoming the ultimate warrior!"

Narrator: "The news of Pandora has reached Ryu, thanks to Chun-Li, as she tracks Shadaloo's movements. The reports of ordinary people displaying unimaginable power due to the influence of the box has Ryu worried."

Ryu: "The box seems to have a power over people. It creeps in, and makes them lose all sense of self. Is it possible that Pandora's Box is connected to the Satsui no Hado...?"

Narrator: "Ryu sets his sights on the Antarctic to discover the true nature of the box. Ken, worried about his friend, decides to accompany him."

Ken: "Guess there's no reasoning with you on this one, huh? Okay. I suppose I might tag along for the ride."

Ryu: "Thanks Ken. I have a feeling I'm gonna need your help."

It was said that the power of Pandora was an evil magic that could corrupt even those with the most benevolent intentions of trying to save the world."

Narrator: "Did the man who was once tempted by the Satsui no Hado fall victim to its power? Or, did he sacrifice himself to rid the power of Pandora? The answer disappeared along with the box.
