Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition is out, and every character in the game has gotten extensive balance changes. Not only do players need to know the new adjustments to their own character, they need to know their opponent’s new tools. In light of this, I’m doing a series of videos on ShoryukenTube showing off the most important gameplay adjustments for each character. I’m doing one video a day in this series until I’ve covered all characters!
I’m doing the characters in the order they appear on Capcom’s official patch notes. The order seems to be SFV’s twelve returning characters, the four new characters, the first season of DLC, and then the second season of DLC, in order of release. My first five characters are Ryu, Ken, Chun-Li, Cammy, and Nash.
In addition to their balance adjustments, each character also received a new selectable V-Trigger. These new V-triggers significantly affect gameplay, and they have a lot of intricacies that are not well defined in the game’s demonstration mode. In light of this, I’m doing a concurrent daily series where I look at each character’s new V-trigger in detail and explain its uses.
I’ll continue with both series every day until I’ve covered all characters, which should take about a month total. Keep an eye out on the ShoryukenTube YouTube channel so you don’t miss out!
