Rising Up: Ryu Character Tutorial–Optimal Combos, Setups, & Frame Traps

By on November 21, 2016 at 9:00 am

This extensive Ryu tutorial video covers everything the aspiring Ryu player needs to know to go Platinum. Bread and butter punishes and confirms, counter hit setups and damage optimization, fireball answers, frame traps listed by delay, meaty pressure, setups, and more. It should tremendously help existing and prospective Ryu players alike.

My own Street Fighter V bread and butter combo videos are by far my most popular YouTube videos. However, the vast majority of them were made during the third SFV public beta test. While almost no serious balance changes were made between that beta and release, certain damage values were incorrect and the players have had a lot of time to develop. The initial videos were made based on my own training mode findings and nothing else, and were fully featured around combos. I asked around, and have decided to flesh them into full character guides, now including a basic game plan I’ve summarized from watching a lot of pro matches. I hope this video stands as a one-stop-shop for everyone’s Ryu needs.

I’ll be aiming¬†to launch¬†a new character tutorial every Monday, until all 22 characters are covered. Remember to subscribe to the Shoryuken channel, and keep an eye out for future videos!
