Event

Fangler Games has been reporting on the 2nd YUBIWAZA CUP, an e-sports event held in Osaka, and we have been reporting on the competitions and booths every day, but this time we finally report on the popular fighting game "STREET FIGHTER V ARCADE ED ITION," a.k.a. "Street Fighter V Arcade Edition. This time, we will report on the popular fighting game "Street Fighter V Arcade Edition", also known as "STO VAE".

Review of the Street Fighter series

The first Street Fighter game was released 32 years ago in 1987.
Four years later came Street Fighter II, which became the most popular fighting game of all time, and got children and adults alike hooked on the series.
It is no exaggeration to say that without its existence, the various fighting games that came later would not exist in the form they do today.
So many people became absorbed in the game that it influenced many other fighting games.

The system has not changed since then, with three punches and three kicks (weak, medium, and strong), but when the game was ported to the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES), the three buttons had to be set to the L and R buttons on the top of the controller, and it was very difficult to perform special moves using the L button. It was very difficult to execute special moves using the button set to the L button. However, I later learned that a 6-button controller was available for fighting games, and I have fond memories of playing against my friends.

This game is the fifth in the Street Fighter series. While the Street Fighter III and IV series have been followed by Street Fighter III and IV, this title aims to return to the roots of Street Fighter II so that players who have played the series can enjoy it again.

Those who were immersed in Street Fighter II back in the day will probably find themselves immersed in Street Fighter V just as much as they did back then.
Perhaps some of those who entered the YUBIWAZA CUP were among the entrants.

More photos! Here's a look at the qualifying tournament!
