'We will take strict action against players currently using Juri and Urien online' - Capcom Japan also promises to fix Ibuki air throw glitch

Yesterday, a bunch of players figured out a way to use Juri and Urien online, and have been playing matches with these yet-to-be released characters.

This has, of course, not escaped Capcom's attention, and on Twitch's Capcom Channel, Street Fighter 5 producer Koichi Sugiyama and assistant producer Tomoaki Ayano appeared to discuss a few current issues with Street Fighter 5.

They started off by clarifying that the Ibuki air throw glitch is completely unintented, and that they're currently working on fixing it. It was mentioned that they can't give a concrete date right now as to when it will be fixed, but urged players to simply not use it in matches since it's an unfair advantage, and it will be gone in the near future.
They also commented on Urien and Juri having been used online in the last day. You can find details on that exchange further down.
Sugiyama and Ayano explained that they've seen the videos of how to make Urien and Juri playable on the PC version of Street Fighter 5, ahead of release, and that they have a good understanding of how to see who's been using them.

This is obviously not something that Capcom wishes to support, and they mention that they are currently investigating how to put a stop to this.

Ayano chimes in that since they're pretty much aware of what players are doing this, they will be dealt with strictly, to which Sugiyama agrees.
