E3 2015 has played host to many new game announcements and demonstrations with many games sharing the spotlight. Each one of the major publishers and platform holders, revealed a large number of games for the first time, gathering the attention of gamers. Capcom has introduced the latest installment in their long running fighting franchise, a while ago, but Street Fighter V had a strong showing at the event.
The E3 2015 trailer saw the return of two of Street Fighter's regulars, punk rocker Birdy and covert operative Cammy.
Some Japanese gamers reported on how unattractive they’re finding Cammy’s Street Fighter V character design making online comments including:
“Street Fighter V’s Cammy is shockingly ugly.”
“I thought everyone was making too big of a deal about Cammy being ugly, so I watched the video and…UGLY.”
“When you pause the video and look at her, it’s really bad. Give us back the cute Cammy from before!”
“She looks cute in her illustrated art, so I wish they’d make her look like that.”
It does seem rather extreme to characterise the new design as ugly, especially when given her form and outfit she appears in. From certain angles she even looks pretty cute. Regardless though Street Fighter V, seems to be shaping up rather nicely and it will surely satisfy fans of the franchise and newcomers alike.
The legendary fighting franchise returns with Street Fighter V, powered by Unreal Engine 4 technology. Stunning visuals depict the next generation of World Warriors in unprecedented detail, while exciting and accessible battle mechanics deliver endless fighting fun that both beginners and veterans can enjoy.
Street Fighter V will be released exclusively for the PlayStation 4 and PC. Through a strategic partnership between Sony Computer Entertainment and Capcom, the next generation Street Fighter experience will offer cross-platform play that will unite fans into a centralized player base for the first time ever.
