Uh oh ... it seems that Street Fighter IV might already be facing balance problems with one of its new characters after only a short time in arcades. Debuting pugilist El Feurte has already been discovered to possess an infinite combo, something considered character breaking and highly undesirable in hardcore fighting game circles.
As with all infinite combos, successful abuse of the tactic can see a player win the match by spamming the same move over and over again without the opponent having a fighting chance. In the above video, the infinite only stops thanks to human error, but you can catch a glimpse of what it looks like between 0:27 and 0:38.
With the console version yet to be released, it will be interesting to see how Capcom deals with the issue, if at all. Will El Fuerte be the first Street Fighter IV character to be banned in tournaments, or will his "broken" infinite combo be fixed? This has got to be frustrating for the developers, who doubtless spent a lot of time attempting to level the playing field.
