Is the rivalry between Daigo and Nuki set to be reignited? Over 3 hours of Nuki vs. Daichan and Naruo's Ryu footage, comments from Daigo and more

Back in the day, the rivarly between MCZ|Daigo and Nuki was at a legendary level in their home country of Japan. This rivalry has yet to be reignited in the Street Fighter 4 era, since Nuki hasn't been as serious with the game as he'd been with older titles.

About a month ago, however, we ran a story saying that Nuki seemed keen on returning to fighting games more properly again.

Today, we have a single-match video of Nuki facing off against Naruo's Ryu embedded, but we've also included links to NicoNico where you can find over 3 hours of footage where Nuki brings his Chun-Li out against Daichan and Naruo's Ryu.

Since this footage was recorded a few weeks ago, it seems fitting to assume it played some part in Nuki's recent victory against Daigo in their one-match exhibition at the Ultra Street Fighter 4 launch event.

Hit the jump for the video, the links to the 3 hours of footage, Daigo's comments on Nuki's recent activities and some information regarding the upcoming Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo Tournament of Legends event.

Daigo, Tokido, Bonchan, GamerBee, and plenty more: Tons of new Ultra Street Fighter 4 footage

With the arcade release of Ultra Street Fighter 4 in Japan, the footage keeps flooding in.

First up, GAMEacho has uploaded a little over an hour and a half of USF4 action. Featured in the video are a plethora of different characters, stages, and players.

Additionally, Warren Patten was able to capture numerous top player matches, off-screen, from the Taito Station arcade in Japan. Some of the players you'll find here include MCZ|Daigo, MCZ|Tokido, AVM|GamerBee, Bonchan, and more. Although you can't see Daigo, Tokido, and Bonchan in their respective videos, (due to them being on the other side of the arcade cabinets), you can still see that the level of play here is quite high.

Xian jumps online to master his secondary SSF4 AE v2012 character... Guile: Xian's Academy ep. 9 ft. Leslie's Sagat

RZR|Xian recently uploaded episode 9 of his Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition v2012 tutorial series, Xian's Academy.

In a nice change of pace, the EVO 2013 champion focuses on mastering his secondary character, as opposed to using his trademark Gen. Xian takes to the online world of Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition v2012 to practice his Guile.

After playing quite a bit online, Xian gets in some local practice against fellow Singaporean player, Leslie. The two run a few different sets where Leslie sticks with Sagat and Xian selects a few different characters including Guile, Makoto, and Juri.

This is a great episode, so be sure to check it out after the break.

GamerBee lists the top 5 characters in Ultra Street Fighter 4, says Sagat may become #1 in the game

AVM|GamerBee is currently in Japan and logging in time with the arcade release of Ultra Street Fighter 4. After checking it out for the past couple of days, and testing things out for himself, he has taken to Twitter in order to relay his discoveries unto the world.

The top Adon player notes that Ultra Street Fighter 4's new delayed wake up mechanic makes set-play, or vortex-style play, more difficult. GamerBee states that characters with strong footsies have improved simply due to the changes made to the overall game, not necessarily due to specific character tweaks.

He goes on to list who he feels are the top 5 characters in the game so far, and although he doesn't know how the tiers will end up exactly, GamerBee did mention who he feels will eventually reign supreme. "I can't tell the order yet," he said, "but I think Sagat has a better chance of becoming number 1 because he got almost everything he need[ed] in USF4."

Hit the jump to check out who GamerBee feels are the top 5 characters in Ultra Street Fighter 4.

Let Bonchan show you, how to Bonchan-Shoryu with Evil Ryu in this new Ultra Street Fighter 4 character breakdown video

What's Bonchan-Shoryu, you ask? Well, it's the art of... playing so well that you won't have to rely on Shoryukens as much.

And with Evil Ryu's uninterruptible crouching medium kick into Hadouken blockstring, and an improved forward+MK command normal that no longer whiffs on certain situations, you won't have to pull out an UmeShoryu (which translates to "Nice Shoryu") as often.

That's a good thing in Ultra Street Fighter 4, given that Shoryuken FADCs have been nerfed in general.

Making -5 Dragon Punch FADC setups safe in Ultra Street Fighter 4

Following up on his previous video which showed how the -5 disadvantage could work on a blocked Dragon Punch FADC in Ultra Street Fighter 4, Carnoustie also showed how you should be able to make these moves safe in the new version of the game, plus bait out attacks for punishes.

While these setups won't work on every single cast member, they are applicable to a wide variety of the roster.

The video also shows a number of Dragon Punch, Focus Attack Dash Cancel setups functioning the way they did previously, helping to assure fans that characters with DP FADC setups/combos still have some of the same tricks up their sleeve.
