    He looks great. and I'm glad his gi isn't monotone anymore. He seems a lot like a KoF character with the same combo and reset potential as Evil Ryu.
    Are you clutch or crutch?

    He's less of a shoto for sure, something I think we have all been dying for. He looks great (except that Legolas hairstyle is weird, needs getting used to).

    I need to see more, they didnt show enough to know if hes cool or not. At the end they showed a face, it looked like Akuma to me.

    Edit: just watched some of his gameplay. Dude looks fucking awesome!

    Yes ex air tatsu seems a lot like a divekicks

    He looks very mobile, I like it so far
  • TonyyyTonyyy Joined: Posts: 108
    I don't think his design looks good at all, they've given him this stupid man bun haircut which a bunch of hipsters have nowdays...just a fail on the design really.
  • DashumDashum Joined: Posts: 48
    I like everything I'm seeing except for his atrocious hair.

    Looks like his j. MK crosses up, similar to Ryu and Nash. I hope his air tatsu does as well since Ryu's doesn't. His V-Skill looks sweet, kind of like a Roman Cancel from GG and like Nash's V-Trigger except without the air mixups and teleport.
    Still lamenting over my lost account of 10+ years :'( .

    HNNNNNNNNGGGGG HE LOOKS SO COOL. They gave him back his brown eyes! And a nice design overall, really doesn't look like a "clone" any more, that gameplay had me spinning. Sorry Chun, but now Ken's been revealed I'm gonna have to rethink which 3S main I want to play.

    Things to take note of -
    Lots of jab short links, so he looks as if he's going to be a quick rushdown pressure character with some good close options to confirm into.

    That V-Trigger...was it a dash cancel? I'm unsure, but it looks like some form of dash?

    CRAZY KICKS AHHHHHHHHHHHH.

    Step-kick looks like it travels full fucking screen.

    A DIVEKICK, WHAT?

    He looks as if he has the same M - H punch target combo, with a new double kick target combo to boot.

    Super small detail, but a lot of his normals give him a fire effect under his feet as he performs them, which looks SO cool.

    His seems very combo oriented. He can link stuff after activating, can juggle his light tatsu, etc. Doesn't seem to help neutral at all like the other characters.

    Apart from improving mobility, what else could they really do that gives an edge? There aren't a ton of options outside of that which would make V-Skills/Triggers unique, they'd just turn out shittier than the rest.

    I think, physically, he looks hideous. His eyebrows reached to the tickness of a moustache, the hair just doesn't suit him. His face really seems ugly to me.

    I'm digging it myself..this is probably my favourite Ken design yet, mainly because they decided to change his design and make him really stand out as his own character which I've been waiting for them to do for a while. I should probably note that I DO think the detail in his design looked bad in that trailer, I just really like the overall character design. Details aren't quite there though.

    Great update of a classic design in ALL regards. He remains iconic as Ken but differentiated from Ryu, leaving Ryu as the traditionalist and Ken as the innovator in both clothing and combat.

    Excellent job, Capcom.

    Also, its just dumb to attack the looks of a character when the game isnt final. Character models will continue to get tweaked. Its just dumb.

    Welcome to my world, bitch :D


    Jokes aside, being a fan of my own ideas i like new chara design :D

    Exectuion is kinda strange but they have a lot of time to make it look good, see how they improved Charlie's face since first appearance

    As now i just like that green hair/azure eyes SF4 Ken is dead, welcome back Ken Masters

    Many people were mad when I said if Akuma and/or Ken are in they need to be very different. Now that the different and kickass Ken appeared who isn't 95% Ryu has appeared, everyone loves him. If Akuma makes it in he also needs a dramatic rework. Ryu deluxe edition would be lame.

    I'd like it if they made the comparisons to a demon a lot more clear in both his moveset and design, they seem to have hit the nail on the head with the Ken design with the Japanese Gi with the more western thermal for a chest piece.

    No idea how you'd make the comparison to a demon happen, but it'd be nice to see that contained and perfectly controlled rage and lust for battle Akuma has all manifested into his design.

    Step kick could be still be a command normal, all ComboFiend said was that you could cancel into it through his V-Skill.

    Glad he have the Run he deserves it.

    I hope they make it the Roll for V-skill. :(

    Making him evasive and fast.

    and I thought he would have V-trigger like Nash.

    I hoped they change his LK Tatsu to something different. But keeping his MK the same


    I hoped they would change his crouching normals Kicks act differently:
    1. like making crouching MK similar to a crouching HK but faster and shorter range. same with wolverine in MSH.
    2. like making his crouching HK like an anti-air.
    3. Maybe its time to change his HP not as Uppercut.


    That would be awesome evolution. THAT WOULD BE A REALLY DIFFERENT. Special Moves is done very good.

    The greatest bringer of Hatred and Salt has returned. Our savior Ken Masters. I like the costume a lot. I like the even more relaxed active stance. I like Shoryu Reppa being the EX SRK. The hair looks ridiculous and his face is odd but not surprising after what they did to Ryu. I noticed the KD on tatsu now. Nice.

    I'd want his air throw back but I didn't see Cammy or Chun Li with theirs.
    Has anyone thanked you today for not setting the whole world on fire?

    They should. I won't. I advocate setting the world on fire. But morons who actually like it, benefit from society, would do well to thank you and men like you for not visiting hell upon them.
