It’s no surprise that Cammy is back for Street Fighter 5, but the latest reveal at E3 showed Birdie also, which was a bit of a shock to me for a couple reasons.
First, he just hasn’t been around for a long time, and wasn’t really that popular to begin with. More surprisingly though is that he looks a lot different now!
He has a giant overweight sprite that reminds me a lot of Earthquake from Samurai Showdown II.
This seems to fall in line with what they said previously about wanting to make every character in SF5 totally different and unique: now we have a big Earthquake dude. That’s something to keep in mind for future speculations.
For you it was the day Bison was announced for Street Fighter V with the release of a trailer showing him off. For him it was Tuesday.
Not as interesting as a new character, but still nice to see how they are changing him up.
Notice the grey hair, pointing to sf5 being the most recent game chronologically (not a prequel).
Capcom has released a Nash (Charlie) gameplay video and he seems to have some weird Frankenstein thing going on. In addition to the Gill/Urien-type gem in his forehead, he now appears to be stitched together from parts, eww.
Looks like I have to write Frankenstein rules now, ha ha!
A Street Fighter V video was leaked today.
(Edit: new video link, old one was deleted by capcom)
Capcom has not confirmed if it is real or not but they had already told us they had a big announcement coming up, and they are trying to pull this down off YouTube as fast as they can for copyright infringement. Seems legit.
Here are some screenshots in case the video I posted gets pulled:
It was just announced at a panel at Evo2013, that there will be 5 new characters added to SFIV (screenshots seem like they are using SFxT 3d models).
- [To be announced later, new to SF]
So, everyone who asked for Poison, I will now be adding poison plus whoever the mystery character is!
Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition version 2012 was released today! It is supposed to be the last version of Street Fighter IV according to Capcom, so there probably won’t be any new characters for a while.
Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition was released today!
Besides a bunch of other old returning characters, it brings back Evil Ryu and introduces Oni. For purposes of the Storyteller System I don’t consider these new characters, just “what if” versions of Ryu and Akuma. Oni does however introduce some new Maneuvers I may cover!
