A closer look at what we can see so far of Cody’s “unique” political platform.

Cody’s new Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition incarnation has been revealed, and is coming to SFVAE on June 26th. As short as a reveal trailer is, it can tell us a lot about what to expect from a new character’s gameplay — and VesperArcade wastes no time jumping in to analyze what we’ve been shown of Cody’s new and returning abilities.

He comments that in the trailer, Cody’s overall animation appears slightly improved over what we’ve seen from prior Season 3 fighters, fitting for a hard-hitting street brawler (Sakura and Falke have both come under criticism for floaty, “soft” move animations). Zonk Knuckle and Ruffian Kick are still here, but no more Criminal Upper (outside of his “Criminal Punisher” Critical Art). He talks about how his V-Triggers look interesting to use, points out how his new target combo draws from his Final Fight moveset (as well as looking very useful), and more in the video below.
