Recent screenshot shows that Street Fighter 5's user interface displays cross-ups, and Max notices Ryu's parry builds V-Trigger

EventHubs reader PlasmaWaffle has sent in a screenshot confirming a cross-up Indicator on the user interface of Street Fighter 5. In the image, we can see Ryu doing a jumping attack that hits Charlie from behind. On the left side of the screen, the word "Cross-Up" appears.

This is one of those seemingly small but clever additions to the game. It will now be clear to player and spectator alike when an attack is an actual cross-up. This should even help commentators, who will sometimes question where a jumping attack hit during a tournament.

Also, during Max's latest "Max Reacts" video, he notices that Ryu actually builds his V-Trigger every time he parries on top of the frame advantage it already offers.

Take a look at the screenshot and Max's latest video below.

Street Fighter 5 will use rollback-based netcode similar to GGPO, wants 'to bring back that sense of 'Oh my!' moments like . . . Third Strike'

Street Fighter 4, the pivotal entry that brought the Street Fighter series back into mainstream popularity, has had a lot going right for it; however, the netcode has remained somewhat of a sore spot for many online warriors. This brought into question whether we'd see a major change to how Street Fighter 5 handles online connectivity.

Writer Alessandro Fillari at Destructoid must have asked the right question during his playtime with Street Fighter 5 as Capcom mentioned their new, proprietary netcode called "Kagemusha".

Chun-Li lands a 20-hit combo using V-Trigger, Bison gets sent off in a bus after KO - raw Street Fighter 5 match footage

There have been a number of different gameplay videos for Street Fighter 5 today, but so far, all of them have come with player commentary. However, if you're looking for some raw match footage, look no further, as IGN has uploaded a couple of bouts for you to enjoy.

In these fights, all four of the currently announced characters are represented. Nash faces off against Ryu, while Chun-Li goes toe-to-toe with M. Bison.

Although this isn't the highest level of play yet, what's shown here definitely gives us a better understanding of how these characters play. We even get to see Chun-Li land a 20-hit combo while in V-Trigger and M. Bison get sent off in a bus between rounds.

You can check out the raw Street Fighter 5 match footage below.

Up to two new Street Fighter 5 characters may be revealed at this year's E3

Today has been quite possibly the largest day for Street Fighter 5 content so far. There has been so much, in fact, that we're still catching new details from videos that went live early in the day.

In VideoGamerTV's impressions video, we noticed a quick remark made by one of the VGTV reps that struck us as very interesting. The comment suggests that when the publication went hands-on with Street Fighter 5, they were shown at least two characters that they are unable to speak about at this time.

"What characters did you see? Other than the couple you can't talk about," we hear in the video.

We've already seen a hint from series producer Yoshinori Ono that may suggest Blanka is going to be announced soon, but who else do you think Capcom may reveal?

But wait! The plot thickens...

Street Fighter 5 runs at Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo speed - Combofiend talks roster, accessibility for newcomers, and more

Destructoid managed to get some hands-on time with Street Fighter 5 at an event in the bay area this week. At said event, they caught up with Capcom's own Peter "Combofiend" Rosas for an exclusive interview regarding the game in which quite a bit was discussed.

With the implementation of new mechanics such as V-Trigger and V-Skills, it's easy to wonder where the inspiration for such facets was derived from. Luckily for Capcom, they had an entire franchise filled with amazing concepts to reference.

"What we did was look at all the good things we've done over the years versus all the things players didn't necessarily like, so there are SO many good things, positive mechanics that people loved over the years," Combofiend explained.

"So we wanted to focus on that aspect, while also having the game feel new and fun. We thought the speed from Super Street Fighter II Turbo was appropriate, so we sped the game...but then, we also wanted each character to feel like a unique experience. When we looked at the V-Skills, we saw an opportunity to see how each character will feel different."

Interestingly enough, Peter seems to compare the speed of Street Fighter 5 to that of Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo in the quote above. This should ease the concerns of those who feel the game looks a bit on the slower side.

Capcom rep insists Xbox will not be getting Street Fighter 5

In an interview with Gamespot, a Capcom representative has removed all doubt that Street Fighter 5 is truly a Playstation exclusive. Specifically, the representative made sure to note that the title will never ship for the Xbox One.

Ryu can recreate EVO moment #37 in Street Fighter 5 - V-Skill breakdown, Critical Art compilation, and more new footage

Updated: GameSpot has released two video for Street Fighter 5: a Critical Art compilation and a breakdown of the new V-Skill moves. In the latter, the GameSpot rep claims that Ryu can recreate EVO moment #37 with his V-Skill parry. Considering the parry can stop multi-hitting attacks (both physical and projectile), it seems very likely.

Oro in Street Fighter 5? Hear BornFree's intriguing argument as to why he thinks the Japanese hermit will appear in the upcoming title

New York-based YouTuber, Street Fighter lover, and figurine collector, BornFree, has an interesting hypothesis explaining why he believes that Oro will be in Street Fighter 5.

As an avid collector of Street Fighter statues and the like, BornFree's argument for Oro is rooted in toy manufacturer Kidrobot's specific choices in the characters they've featured in their Street Fighter line.

BornFree uses his insight as a collector to deduce that, based on the way Capcom has allowed Kidrobot to produce specific character figurines such as Charlie, that Oro is likely part of the cast of SF5.

He uses similar methods to deduce that Alex will almost certainly be in the game. You can see his argument in the video after the jump.
