I like what I see. I’m cool with the Sumi-E style backgrounds during specials if they stick with that. The thing that set SS apart from the fighters of its time (besides weapons) was the traditional music and style of the locations and characters. They’re utilizing the unreal engine and appealing to a wider audience with the SFIV look, so be it just as long as they nail the gameplay mechanics and here’s hoping for finally figuring out online play (that may be too much to hope for). Fuck it, I’m good with solid gameplay, beautiful backdrops and wonderful BGM that gets me hype.
If the online is solid though, be ready bitches. You will know my name.
*edit* I’m buying this game no matter what. And whatever the highest tier version comes out, that’s what I’ll be buying. Figure I’ve saved thousands of dollars from the dried up well filled with shit games that I can finally splurge on a franchise that is near and dear to my heart.
