Super Street Fighter IV: 3D Edition
Chun-Li has retired since Akuma killed M. Bison. Bored with retirement, she starts looking into recent Murders and kidnappings. She and Guile take a deeper look and decide they are the work of Shadaloo and S.I.N. She then, along with Guile and Cammy, joins the tournament. She decides she is fighting not just for her father anymore, but for herself.
During the tournament she meets a great many people, including Abel, who inquires about Shadaloo. She also runs into Juri, but is un-able to arrest her. Eventually she finds Gen, but can't get any information out of him about her father. Eventually she infiltrates the S.I.N facility where she meets Vega. They fight, and Vega escapes by activating the building's self-destruct. She is rescued at the last moment by Guile and Abel.
After the Tournament, she returns home, and decides not to let her father's death rule her life anymore.
