Combofiend: We're working on an indicator for delayed wake up use in Ultra Street Fighter 4, Japan thinks Hugo sucks but I believe they're wrong

During the Ultra Street Fighter 4 location test stream yesterday, Capcom's Peter "Combofiend" Rosas dropped some knowledge about some of the things they're working on in the future, along with how his thoughts on the current balance of power is in regards to Hugo.

When asked about the delayed wake up mechanic in USF4 currently, Rosas said that characters appear to be more sunk into the ground when you use it.

"So the effect is actually when they hit the ground, there is a little bit of like a flattened effect, or something like that. They kind of sink into the ground a little bit more," he stated.

"We're working on implementing more of a telltale after the fact kind of like Capcom vs. SNK 2. Just so it puts you on notice that the other guy does use delayed get up."

"Not so that you can recognize it and be like 'Oh, let me change my setup or potential setup to something a little different.' It's more like 'Oh, OK, his tendencies are that he does use delayed wake up,'" said Rosas.

Combofiend noted that in CvS2, the delayed wake up happened with shadows, and it let you know the other player was using this mechanic. He didn't say this is the system they'll be using in USF4, but he gave it as an example.

Nothing overly special about the clip, but it's cool to see that some of these guys are fans of the same games we are. Hit the jump to view the very short video.
