New details coming in for Street Fighter V from Shortlist Magazine. There’s confirmation of the gameplay mechanic called, “V-trigger,” which you gain by taking damage. Players then can use V-trigger to activate moves such as Chun-li’s double fireballs, or Charlie’s fancy teleports. There’s Â another new mechanic called, Â “V-Skill,” which allows stance changes for defensive options. Ryu gets a parry and Bison gets to deflect fireballs.
Expect each character to have a unique stance and V-trigger gauge usage. The now flashy Ultras are being renamed Critical Arts and activated through your EX meter like older Street Fighter titles. Â Also unveiled were two new stages one set in China, the other set in London called “Kings Cross Station”. We will have more on Street Fighter V as E3 approaches, stay tuned as we will have impressions next week.
