With Ultra Street Fighter IV now out in the wild, those attending Japanese arcades are starting to get a feel for the new game and the possibilities its brought with it.
One such possibility has to do with Guy’s Bushin Senpukyaku. While it’s already received quite a buff, it seems to have another interesting property afforded by its two-frame startup that may open up new avenues for the ninja’s gameplay.
In the video below, the Guy player appears to cancel his hurricane kick into an EX Bushin Izuna Otoshi at around the ten second mark. A similar situation occurs at around 1:50 with his EX Run.
At this point, a lot of theories are being thrown around as to why this works, but little concrete information has been settled on. It’s also very possible this is an unintentional side effect of the latest round of changes and could be corrected in a future update.
UPDATE – Ambassador Foxx recently put together a video that, to the best of their knowledge, explains why this is possible in Ultra and explores a few more possibilities.
