VesperArcade ponders what could solve Ryu’s problems in Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition

“I don’t even think Season 1 Ryu could survive in Street Fighter V right now.”

Before Ryu was nerfed into oblivion during Season 1, the competitive landscape of SFV was quite different. As the seasons went on and new characters (and absurd V-Triggers) were added to the game, many in the cast struggled to keep up with the top tiers — but Ryu, so badly damaged from a wide array of nerfs, just struggled to keep up with what he once was.

While Capcom has slowly tried to stitch the World Warrior back together, VesperArcade worry that he’s fallen too far behind. This wish-list discussion for Ryu recounts exactly what was lost for the on-the-box protagonist — and what can be done to make him right.
