Street Fighter V is official and it now has a proper gameplay trailer showcasing Ryu vs. Chun Li to prove it. A few points:
- It will be console-exclusive to PS4
- It will support cross-platform play between PS4 and PC
- It is looking pretty great
From early appearances it looks graphically to be a refinement of SFIV, but a finely detailed and much-improved refinement at that. The muscles on Ryu really pop, and more than that his model just looks much more life-like than his Hulk'ish SFIV version. (Some still shots make it easier to take in the finer details.) The special move effects look slick as always, but my favorite moment of the trailer is when Chun Li nails him with a simple reverse kick at an upward-tilted, nicely dramatic camera angle.
There's much that remains to be seen, but if the full character roster looks as good as this early preview they may have a system-seller on their hands (speaking for one Street Fighter fan at least).
