Nuki, the last of Japan's five fighting game gods, returning to the craft? Signs point towards yes, video featuring Nuki's Chun-Li vs. Uryo's Cody

To people who've been in the fighting game community for a long time, the concept of Japan's five gods is hardly forgotten. Back in the era before Street Fighter 4, there were five players in Japan whose skills were simply seen as so exceptional, they were a cut above the rest of the competition.

Four out of these five so-called gods, MCZ|Daigo Umehara, MCZ|Tokido, HORI|Sako and Haitani, went on to produce strong results in the Street Fighter 4 series, as well. But one of them never embraced the new game properly, and is relatively unknown to new audiences, compared to the other four. But that might all be about to change.

Recent activity suggests that Nuki may well be throwing his hat into the ring. After receiving large vocal support from his fans, Nuki has begun playing regular Street Fighter 4 sessions online and at arcades and made declarations that he's returning to fighting games and might possibly be aiming for EVO.

Perhaps the most telling tidbit, though, is that on the 3rd of March, Nuki's Player Points in online Super Street Fighter 4: Arcade Edition v2012, were at 2800. A mere week later, his PP had risen to above 4000.

Hit the jump for some more information, as well as a highlight video featuring Nuki's signature Chun-Li going up against Uryo's... Cody?!

EX special moves and Ultras made their first appearance in Street Fighter: The Movie, the game; Alpha Counters were also included

If you've managed to get some hands-on time with any of the Street Fighter games that were released after the SF2 series, then chances are you've run into EX special moves, Alpha Counters, and Ultras at some point or another. These game mechanics are used very often in modern Street Fighter titles, and Capcom / Namco's recent crossover fighter, Street Fighter X Tekken, actually incorporated a form of all three into its gameplay.

Each of the aforementioned game mechanics has its respective game where it was originally introduced: Street Fighter Alpha (Alpha Counters), EX special moves (Street Fighter 3), and Ultras (Street Fighter 4). Or so we thought...

It may surprise you to hear that these concepts weren't actually brand new by the time those titles were officially released. A game that is only spoken about in hush tones throughout the Street Fighter community actually included these mechanics before or at around the same time as the 3 titles mentioned above.

That's right. Street Fighter: The Movie, the game, had EX special moves, and its own form of Alpha Counters and Ultras. Hit the jump, and we'll tell you all about it.

Thank you parry much: Ryan Hart avoids K.O. and scores a victory with this perfectly timed red parry in Street Fighter 3 Third Strike

During the recent Gutter Trash Street Fighter 3 Third Strike tournament in London, England, a particularly awesome moment was captured on film.

In a close match with a Dudley player, Ryan Hart (Ken) was able to avoid an imminent K.O. using a perfectly placed red parry. Both combatants were only a pixel away from losing in the 2nd round of the game, when the Dudley attempted to chip Ryan out with a Machine Gun Blow. Ryan blocked the attack, and in order to avoid the final bit of chip damage that would knock him out, Hart pulled off a red parry, and punished accordingly for the victory.

The footage here is shot off-screen, and you get to see Ryan's reaction, along with the crowd getting hype in the background. It's great to see players pulling off clutch victories, and fans still getting excited for a game that is over a decade old.
