Updated: Vega is not a charge character in SF5, but that could change very easily - Combofiend chimes in

Update: In an interview with Shoryuken, Associate Producer for SF5, Peter "Combofiend" Rosas, has stated that this could change.


"We’re just testing him out without charge motions at this moment in time. It’s not final by any means. If it’s a good fit, it may stay. If it’s too strong, it could go. We were just giving players a heads up so they’re not in utter shock when they use him at Gamescom.”

Earlier: Street Fighter's Twitter just announced that Vega will not be a charge character, but rather a circular motion character in Street Fighter 5: We suspect initial reactions will surely imply that this may make the character overpowered, but we have faith that developers know what they're doing. We'd like to hear your thoughts on the matter. You can hit the jump below to see the reveal trailer.
This is a major change for the masked fighter, as he has traditionally required a momentary charge to perform most of his special attacks and super combos. Vega will be an entirely new experience in SF5, given this huge alteration.
