Everything you need to know about how the jump back option select is changing in Street Fighter 5

As big of a stir as the jump back option select caused when it was first discovered around one year ago, not everyone in the Street Fighter 5 community seems to have full grasp of how it works.

In short, it's a coverall means of defending against meaty attacks, throws and shimmies with one input sequence, the type of thing SF5 developers have wanted to avoid since day one.

Though there was something of an adjustment attempt made last year, the tech is still widely at large in regular gameplay. That's likely changing come the end of April.

Vesper Arcade has produced a video detailing the specifics of the jump back OS, and explaining why it should, in theory, be removed with the coming game update.
