Breaking: Street Fighter 5 Patch Bug Discovered

Posted by Frosthaven |

Here in the twenty-first century, we get to enjoy a lot of benefits that were once only a dream. Games can be updated on the fly. Bugs can be fixed. Patches bring about an always evolving game play experience. The downside, however, is that for as much as patches can fix - they can also break.

Such is the case with the most recent iteration on Street Fighter 5. While most players were exploring the new in game store or the new member to the roster, Alex, Laura player vryu先生 on twitter discovered that something wasn't quite right with his inputs:

The video he posted on twitter

That twitter post is pretty telling. Apparently, in certain circumstances, ex thunder clap followed up by standing medium punch gets stuffed. In the video, vryu先生 was able to show the bug by simply switching sides and spacing.

At this point in time we're uncertain how deep the problem goes and if it's shared by other characters, but we'll definitely be keeping an eye out.
