It's a GOB versus Tobias smackdown in an imaginary game that's Arrested Development meets Street Fighter.

Internet, we love you, but why must you dangle before us things we cannot have?

Brian K Anderson, the YouTube user who brought us the Lego Breaking Bad video game parody, has done it again — this time with one of our favourite TV shows of all time, Arrested Development.

In BluthFighter — a mash-up with Street Fighter — we get to see GOB Bluth square off against Tobias Fünke in full blue man regalia and never-nude short-shorts, tagging out for Tony Wonder and Carl Weathers, with such awesome moves as the Segway Slam. Who we'd really love to see is Lucille, possibly dealing out Martini Haymakers.

Admittedly, the animation is slightly on the sluggish side, but it looks like there's enough Arrested Development humour in there to have us playing at least long enough to put every character through their paces to see what they come up with.

Alas, it's only a proof of concept. Although Anderson did point out that if he had the resources and the licence, the game would totally get made, so there's still hope. And the Bluthfighter t-shirts are fabulous.
