Ryu’s fiery rival is back and more unique than ever. Besides the obvious change to his appearance, his arsenal has a number of new normal moves and modifications to his specials. Most obvious is the change to his Hurricane Kick, as the heavy version doesn’t travel in a straight line anymore and the jumping EX version comes down fast like a dive kick. While he’s been tuned to be more of an up-close threat than ever, it comes at the cost of his reach. His normal moves have been shortened, and his fireball game is weaker than it’s ever been. To succeed now, you’re going to have to rush in and rush hard.
