Fan-made makeover for Street Fighter 5's heads up display looks to make the game more discernible for casual audiences

My parents called me late Friday night to excitedly share that while flipping through channels, they stumbled upon TBS' Eleague. The outreach is growing, and more eyes are on us than ever before.

We're growing more and more eSports every day, and so we naturally have a growing number of audience members that aren't as familiar with all the different glowing meters and bars on the screen. Rarely have we ever heard fans take much issue with Street Fighter 5's heads up display, as it does a fine job giving fighting game fans and players all the information they need to know.

Enter Andrew "nevbamshew" David Murphy, illustrator and Street Fighter fan. Nev has imagined a slightly touched up HUD with the objectives of making the presentation more enticing as well as informative to those less Street Fighter savvy:

There's a quick video after the jump for those that prefer.

The transition at the 46 second mark is pretty cool.
