First gameplay footage of Street Fighter IV

You’ve been waiting for it just like I have, and now the moment has arrived. The guys from some website were lucky enough to score a visit to Capcom headquarters in Shinjuku, Tokyo to play Street Fighter IV, and brought plenty of gameplay footage back with them.

Between all the yapping, (which you should nevertheless pay attention to, as it details how the game is played) the above video shows off some clips of a very beefy Ken, fighting some Nicaraguan guy. I won’t go into what I think of the art style, but I am very happy to see that the game looks fast. Fast is good. 

I don’t want to add to the yapping, so I’ll shut up now and let you watch it. Was it everything you hoped it would be? Was it everything you hoped it wouldn’t be? What do you think?

[Editor’s note: Yes, it’s taking forever to load. That’s because there are about a zillion people trying to watch it right now. Quit crying.
