Street Fighter 5 has an average input lag of 6.5 now according to Display Lag's initial draft test

Initial tests of Street Fighter 5's input lag with the 1.09 release of the game show a reduction in input lag, down to about an average of 6.5 frames.

The game has previously been documented as having about 7.9 frames of input lag on the PS4, prior to this patch that was released on Sept. 22, 2016.

Display Lag posted a new video which added a caveat that the "test is a rough draft until our new testing method is finalized soon. Due to the nature of this test, it may be slightly inaccurate due to the lack of an LED to determine activation point."

Display Lag also noted that "it's still ~2 frames behind Ultra Street Fighter 4 using this testing method," but they will update with new information when new testing equipment arrives, as this current method is prone to inaccuracies.

Urien's official trailer unveiled, release date to be announced at Tokyo Game Show

It's time, folks! Capcom has released Urien's official Street Fighter 5 trailer.

In the latest Capcom Unity blog, we learn that the release date for this DLC character and the September updates will be revealed at Tokyo Game Show next week, which begins on September 15th.

Urien made his debut back in Street Figther 3: 2nd Impact. He is the Vice President of Illuminati, and looks to overthrow his brother Gill as leader, then destroy Shadaloo. He's sadistic and elitist, and gets joy out of making others crumble at the sight of his power.

In Street Fighter 5, Urien is back with a pin-striped suit and a big smile on his face. He has strong normals, long combos, and slow moving projectiles that allow him to better pressure the opponent. Adding to his ability to apply pressure is his Aegis Reflector, which makes its return from the Street Fighter 3 series.

Urien is slated for a September release; Capcom clears up the recent Street Fighter 5 confusion

Yesterday, information on Street Fighter 5's September update was released by Capcom. Among the details about double Fight Money events and a new punishment system for rage quitters (which is actually rolling out later today), a note about colors for the DLC characters seemed to cause confusion for fans.

The Capcom Unity blog entry states that Street Fighter 5 season pass owners will be receiving colors 3-10 for the default and battle costumes on all six of the DLC fighters free of charge. This perplexed many fans, since only five of the six DLC fighters are currently available and the update blog did not mention Urien's release at all.

FGC members began wondering: Is Urien going to be released in August before the September update drops? Though the blog entry seemed to suggest something along those lines, it look as though a release for Urien this month isn't the case.

We reached out to Capcom to get the lowdown, and they confirmed with us that Urien will be seeing a release sometime in September.
