This weekend, we reported on an interesting technique that was discovered in Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition ver. 2012 that allows players to punish whiffs with specials, supers, and ultras thanks to an option select that utilizes the game’s proximity guard mechanic. In an effort to better explain the discovery, ShoryuSengan recently sent over a tutorial he put together that details how to pull it off yourself.

Additionally, other videos were uploaded to show how particular characters in the AE 2012 cast can utilize this technique, including Balrog (dispelling an earlier notion that charge characters couldn’t), Seth, and Makoto.

UPDATE – We recently received two more videos that focus on Ken and Fei Long.

UPDATE 2 – Another video demonstrating Gouken’s ability to utilize this option select with his parry was sent to us by Von.
