The son of Sparda probably deserves a lot more at this point

Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 has seen an unexpected yet very welcome resurgence over the past year thanks to Parsec and the dedicated warriors, which has led to the modding community rising as well to create some really cool additions to the game we've been playing almost a decade.

Modder Tabs recently released a new UMvC3 mod that transforms Ryu into Ken complete with different moves / animations that make him look like he belongs on the main roster.

While simple palette swaps are nothing really new for the game, actually changing moves around adds potentially unique ways to play a game that hasn't seen an official update in many years.

Ken's Hyper Combos appear to be taken almost directly from Street Fighter 4 with the Shinryuken and the Guren Senpukyaku that actually moves him across the screen unlike Ryu's Tatsu Super.

The red Shoto fighter is also given other alterations including performing his air Hadoken with one hand which seems to be a callback to older MvC titles plus what looks to be some different normals.

Of course his heavy Shoryuken is blazing with fire too.

Impressive mod work like this is certainly an exciting prospect to keeping that Marvel spirit alive and make it fresh at the same time which you can get a taste of below.
