This season of Street Fighter 5 wasn't supposed to happen, but Capcom says fan feedback surpassed what happened in prior years

Saying Street Fighter 5's existence has been a wild ride would be a understatement.

It shipped with minimal single player content in 2016, and the story mode, which was promised at launch, came about 6 months afterwards as a free update. The game wouldn't receive a proper arcade mode till nearly two years later.

We got our first real showcase of Oro as he'll appear in Street Fighter 5 today during Capcom's Spring Update stream. Like many legacy characters added into SF5, the old hermit's movements and style are a nice blend of familiar and novel.

Many of his attacks return here in Street Fighter 5 as he's able to perform his double jump, both backwards and forwards, and retains many familiar normal attacks. Many of said normals don't look too fast, but some hit multiple times while others cover various angles and distances.

Punk hosted an Eleven only Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition tournament — Here are the highlights in a single video

PG|Punk recently hosted a tournament in Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition where all entrants were locked into using Eleven — a character that essentially functions as the game's random select feature.

To be truly successful at this event, players had to be lucky in addition to being skilled at the game. Even if a competitor rolled a character that they were comfortable with, there was still a possibility that they could get a less optimized V-Skill and V-Trigger combination.

In the screenshot, Oro's mustard yellow complexion is clearly seen on his wrinkled forehead. His eyes are also emitting a red glow. If we didn't already know who Oro was, we'd probably be led to think that Oro was a villainous character based on the red eyes.

Storm Kubo, Poongko and DoingMyJob use Dan Hibiki to take on Ultimate Grand Masters and Warlords in Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition sets

As is tradition within the Street Fighter series, Dan Hibiki is generally looked at as one of the weaker characters in Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition. Even with access to a corner infinite, Dan is probably, at best, a mid tier in Street Fighter 5.

Achieving victory with Dan against Ultimate Grand Master and Warlord ranked players is a sign of true mastery. SFV Fan has recently uploaded videos that showcase matches where DoingMyJob, Storm Kubo and PoongKo use Dan against highly ranked opponents.

Grammy-winning beat maker creates a catchy theme based on Dan's corner infinite in Street Fighter 5

It can be said that the timing of combos in fighting games have a real rhythm behind their execution. Those with backgrounds in music could feel right at home when it comes to the execution of strict and complex combos.

Even Dan's corner infinite in Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition has a bit of a rhythm to it. While it might appear to be simple at first glance, the combo is actually fairly difficult to perform consistently thanks to the subtle stutter stepping that's necessary to keep Dan within range. As such, Knxwledge has recently uploaded a clip on Twitter that plays a musical track based on the timing of the combo.
