The Japanese software developer Daletto has announced that its upcoming Street Fighter Online: Mouse Generation fighting action game will feature avatars based on Shotaro Ishinomori's Cyborg 009 manga when it goes live this fall. Unlike almost all other incarnations of the Street Fighter franchise, the new game will have players fighting each other by operating personal computer mice. Ishinomori began drawing his Cyborg 009 science fiction adventure manga in 1967, and it has since been adapted into several anime movies and television series. In North America, Tokyopop released 10 volumes of the manga, and Sony Pictures Home Entertainment released the 2001-2003 television series remake.
