It’s been a LONG while since I last played Street Fighter. So long, in fact, that I believe the last game in the series I actually played was on my PlayStation 2. I didn’t stop because I disliked the series, however. Far from it. I to this day look for any opportunity to sprinkle a sentence with a colorful Hadoken!, Shoryuken! or Sonic Boom! It’s just that I was at my Street Fighter prime when I was a teenager.
That said, I have to admit Street Fighter V looks pretty darn incredible. Though I’m surprised it’s going to be a Sony exclusive, I have to say the graphics have come a long way from what I remember. The footage they showed off at the Capcom Cup was not only mind blowing to an old fan like me, but really got me legitimately interested in the series again. Especially when they showed off that Charlie Nash was making a comeback in Street Fighter V at the end. Though I am more of a Guile fan, it will be nice to have some gameplay variety. Especially since Nash was previously rumored to be playable in Street Fighter IV for the 3DS, but turned out not to be.
Take a gander at the trailer and let us know what you think!
