I just got Street Fighter Anniversary Collection for PS2 and this is my first time playing 3rd strike…ever! I can’t seem to do a shoryuken with Ryu or Ken when i am holding :df: or just :r:. Example: If i am walking forward and the opponent jumps at me, i can’t just shoryuken. I find that I have to go back to neutral, then perform the complete shoryuken motion.
When did this change happen? Is the arcade version of 3rd Strike the same way? I thought it was my controller at first, but then i tried it in Anniversary Edition and can shoryuken on command there.
