It looked really cool, but we had to keep in mind that it WASN’T any indication of in-game play. This week, however, they’ve released a screenshot and MAAAN, it’s startin’ to look good! And I’m not just talkin’ bout Ryu’s bulge either (haha!) Apparently, gameplay will remain 2D based while the sprites and backgrounds will be polygonal.
Usually, I don’t like 3D characters but given the amazingly stylized treatment of this image, I’m going to have to make an exception. It looks as though they’re going for a real painterly look here. That’s something that I always really loved about the series– the art. It was always beautifully stylized, cutting-edge stuff. So let’s hope that Capcom can pull this off. Because if they can, I for one will be overjoyed at the revival of my favorite game series.
