Daigo Umehara on politics of game balancing: Street Fighter 6 devs don't understand which characters are strong

During a recent question and answer streaming session the most celebrated fighting game professional on the planet, BST|Daigo Umehara, offered some of his thoughts on the politics of balancing fighting games, a practice that's really only been around in its current form for the last 13 years or so.

Trying to tease out aspects of a Street Fighter entry that're actually over or under-powered versus what players simply need to spend more time with is no easy task, and trying to get a game so well balanced that it's universally praised seems nigh impossible. Daigo feels that influential figures in the community need to actively help developers in this arena, and simultaneously not be overly political about trying to influence selfish changes.

Full story of Sagat leading into Street Fighter 6

The original boss of the Street Fighter franchise is often and understandably cited as SF2's M. Bison, but the final and frustratingly overpowered challenge of the very first Street Fighter game was none other than The Emperor of Muay Thai: Sagat.

Sagat's history is an especially interesting one as he wrestles with relatable inner demons that Capcom expertly depicts through clever symbolism, and the fact that he's a towering and battle-torn badass surely helps add to the charisma factor.

3D artist creates breathtaking artwork of Street Fighter gals

First and foremost, no, this is not made by AI. MikaDawn3D is an artist who has been using Blender since 2020 to create 3D models of their favorite fictional characters, the lead of which seems very much to be Street Fighter's Cammy.

While Miss White is the subject of the majority of the images in our roundup today, she is joined by the likes of Chun-Li, Laura, Manon, and Juri (who is joined by a guest appearance from an Overwatch character). There's a lot to love when it comes to MikaDawn's art, continue on to see for yourself.

Why'd they make F.A.N.G look so much cooler in Street Fighter 6?

Back in the Street Fighter 5 days, there was arguably no bigger joke than F.A.N.G aside from maybe Necalli's jobbing capabilities.

The master of poison has technically returned now in Street Fighter 6 with the arrival of his apprentice A.K.I., and Capcom actually managed to make him look pretty cool now.

Sincostan's King of Fighters, Darkstalkers, and Street Fighter fan art is top tier in the cuteness category

Today we're featuring the fighting game fan art from Sincostan, an artist with a particular knack for making characters look exceptionally cute.

We so often see characters such as Mai Shiranui, Ángel, and Morrigan Aensland as more badass and sexy, and while they still do check those boxes in their portrayals here, we can't help but feel disarmed by bubbly cheeks and bright eyes.

Is Street Fighter 6 already more balanced than the final versions of SF4 and SF5? EventHubs debates

We know better than to expect a new Street Fighter game to be balanced, but could it be that Capcom finally figured out the formula to level up in major ways? We pit Street Fighter 6 as it stands in its 3 month infancy against the likes of Ultra Street Fighter 4 and Street Fighter 5 Champion Edition to debate whether this is the most balanced SF entry to date.

While I'm already convinced that SF6 is more balanced than any and all of its predecessors, Catalyst and MajinTenshinhan aren't quite ready to agree wholesale, and thus we dig in and explore with some debate filled discussion.

F.A.N.G from Street Fighter 5 has been confirmed to be A.K.I.'s master in Street Fighter 6

Though A.K.I. is the first newcomer DLC character coming to Street Fighter 6 (on September 27), it felt like we already knew some details about A.K.I. Upon first seeing her and hearing her name, we're immediately made to think that she has some sort of connection to F.A.N.G from Street Fighter 5. While this shouldn't be too surprising for fans, A.K.I.'s connection to F.A.N.G has at last been fully confirmed thanks to the PlayStation Blog post about A.K.I. in Street Fighter 6.

"A new character to the Street Fighter series, A.K.I. snakes through life only to please her outstanding and phenomenal master F.A.N.G from Street Fighter 5," said the PlayStation Blog. "Under orders to dig into the remnants of Shadaloo, she finds herself infatuated with the powers that be."

We probably already know the beginning of A.K.I.'s dark backstory in Street Fighter 6

Capcom showed off some wonderfully haunting first footage of A.K.I., Street Fighter 6's next brand new DLC character, at Evo this year. The toxic combatant moves like a snake and dons a dress that's made of thousands of black scales, and uses poison not unlike the similarly acronymically named (and poison-wielding) F.A.N.G from Street Fighter 5.

We've almost no information on A.K.I. yet, though Capcom very well may have given us the crucial beginnings of her dark backstory a full five years ago in 2018. One of their "side-readers" stories detailing some post-SF5 events surrounding F.A.N.G really sounds like it offers the inciting incident that turned A.K.I. on the initial path that led her into becoming the apparent monster she is in SF6.

Street Fighter 6 has so much content because of Street Fighter 5's missteps but the developers worried it still wouldn't be enough

There's a lot of things you can certainly say about Street Fighter 6 now, but it lacking content isn't really one of them, which was a breath of fresh air compared to Capcom's other recent fighting games.

Japanese publication Inside-Games recently had the chance to interview SF6 Director Takayuki Nakayama and Producer Shuhei Matsumoto where they discuss how the shadow of Street Fighter 5's mistakes loomed over their heads for SF6 and how they worried there still wouldn't be enough content to make up for it.

Hadoken! - Premium Street Fighter gloves for Ryu react and make sound effects when performing special moves in real life

I'm sure there's quite a few people out there who've gotten into real martial arts thanks to fighting games, however, I'm not sure they should be bringing these gloves to their next training lesson (because they might be too powerful).
