It has been 26 years since the release of Street Fighter 2:The World Warrior, but despite its age some new combos have been discovered.

Desk put together a combo video that further explores the game's Vega restand glitch. One of the first showings of this glitch came from TZW, dating back to when combo videos were on VHS.

Essentially, players can continue to hit Vega (Claw) when he has been knocked down by a sweep. Though this glitch has been around for a long time, Desk attempted to push the limits of it and see what he could come up with.

Below is just a quick example of his findings.
