Question about SFxT combos


Hey guys,

Just getting into SF as a serious game and I am wondering if using fighter tutorials for SSF4 would be viable for SFxT? I mean I know they are two games but the mechanics seem to be the same. Any input would be much appreciated.

(First time posting here)




Some of the fundamental concepts of fighting games (frame data, hitboxes, mixups, meaties, etc) will be the same, but a number of SFxT’s particular system mechanics are different than SF4; notably: extended juggle combos, tag team combos, universal chain combos, tech rolls, alpha counters, no focus attacks/FADC, etc.

So, in short, if you’re watching tutorials about common 2D fighting game concepts, then yes. If you’re watching more advanced SF4-specific ones, perhaps not.
