With NorCal Regionals behind us, we dive right into another roundup of Street Fighter V content. Let’s get started!

Ambassador Foxx kicks things off today by demonstrating Karin’s reset potential through a series of chained jab follow-ups. These may look pretty basic on first glance–and you may have seen some of them before–but, upon closer inspection, one can see that Karin causes the reset after the second jab instead of the first, thanks to its additional juggle properties which don’t appear on the first jab.

Like many resets, some of these are more useful than others, and none should be a go-to option all the time, but if you’re looking to add some variety to your gameplay between bouts of boisterous laughter, this is a good place to check.

When fishing to tack on that last hit to tick the stun bar over into a dizzy, we’ve got plenty of options. Thanks to a new video from Benji Topaz, Necalli players now have a few more. As you’ll see in this next video, Necalli has a handful of fuzzy guard options that he can pepper in to keep opponents on their toes.

We close out today’s roundup with a collection of video-based hitbox data from Overheat’s GameTime. Sure, we’ve all seen plenty of hitbox data by now, but these videos present the information in (very) slow motion. So far, they’ve compiled footage for Nash, R. Mika and Vega, all of which we’ve included below.


Send us your videos; they could be featured in our next Street Fighter V community roundup!
