Double stuns on M. Bison, crazy lockdown and tons of combos: Desk controls Ryu and Ken at the same time in Street Fighter Alpha's Dramatic Battle mode

Cooperative experiences are not typically part of the standard fighting game formula that Street Fighter 2 established, but when they're implemented properly, playing alongside your friend can prove just as fun as beating them up.

Desk is not a competitive fighting game player, but he is an absolute combo monster. His latest video has him co-oping with himself in Street Fighter Alpha's Dramatic Battle mode controlling both Ryu and Ken at the same time with wild results — one fight stick for each hand.

Using the original Street Fighter Alpha / Zero where you can only play as the Shotos against M. Bison, Desk appears to put a ton of work into dissecting the mode completely allowing him to pull of a ton of combos and set ups that would only be possible in Dramatic Battle.

He's able to stun the Shadaloo boss multiple times in a single round with Ryu and Ken's Hadokens and punches on loop as well as hitting three Supers in a single combo with the proper timing put in to keep Bison completely locked down instead of rampaging around the screen.

There is no way to practice Dramatic Battle-style in the Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection, so Desk had to practice against the CPU on the fly and learn how to properly manipulate Bison to pull off combos outside of Training Mode.

This isn't the first time we've seen Desk play one-handed after injuring himself last year nor the first time he's controlled two characters at once though this may go down as one of his most impressive feats yet due to the technical skills / dexterity required along with all of the lab time put in to make just this short video.
