It’s pretty exciting to see someone like Sako playing Evil Ryu. Before all we saw of his Evil Ryu was online Endless matches, now we finally see him bust out ER in a tournament and won mainly using him. It’s too bad he didn’t use him for GF, but I guess Gen does better against Bison than ER does. But he did use him exclusively in the Kumite and did very well in those matches using him.
I’m much more impressed with Sako’s Evil Ryu now then I was before. He played a very basic ER in those online matches, zoning and footsie based. Now he’s doing ER stuff like those corner set ups. I hope he comes to EVO and sticks with ER.
