Yesterday the Capcom Cup event took place, a tournament where some of the world’s best Street Fighter players compete for monetary prizes, and during the event the first proper look at Street Fighter V’s gameplay. It features Chun Li and Ryu facing off showing off their trademark moves, with hadoukens and kicks galore. It looks rather remarkable while retaining the artistic style that the Street Fighter games had on the last generation of consoles.
The gameplay shows both EX and Revenge bars in action, with the former looking like it gives element based damage for a brief while and the latter are essentially supers that do a ridiculous amount of damage. This shown stage is slightly destructible too allowing for a new area to open up and fight in, and there’s also a bonus noodle bowl that ends up on someone’s head though you should watch the full footage to see that. The bowl even remains on the head for the rest of the match.
