You know a game is a classic when even after two decades, new stuff continues to be found for it! Such is the case of Super Street Fighter II Turbo–which is the subject of this new video from legendary combo video maker Final Showdown.

The focus of the video below is Ken’s “funky kick” cross up. Most Super Turbo veterans know that Ken’s funky kicks, especially the half-circle forward version,  can cross up in certain situations. The new discovery in Final Showdown’s video expands on that, showcasing how the player can cancel the tail end of the funky kick’s animation into itself, allowing it to cross up in even more situations than normal.
