Ok this has been sitting in my drafts for the longest time and the high quality video that Mervyn so kind heartedly, encoded has became sorta stale by the time I got to hitting the “Publish” button. Anyhow da new arcade game indeed brings back tonnes of memories. I remember spending after school hours at the arcade just busy whacking buttons and I was so head over heels in lurve with *my hubby Akuma and his super Blackout special. (Oooh I hope he’s back!).
Anyway, from the Street Fighter IV screens they’ve released to date, the Famitsu crew has really outdone themselves this time with a unique art direction and I don’t know how else you can call it. . . 3D in 2D? Included in the “new” (now not so new) screens is a fresh face and several familar ones (except Akuma! Darn!).
Seems like Ryu buffed a tad.
