Ryu in TVC and UMVC3 was never a mistake they were average unlike the other version, He being better than his MVC2 counter part was wrong?
Ryu is more supernatural and has more depth in training than Cyclops and Chun li that can do multiple jumps that defy gravity, So why can’t he get to return the Air Dash from TVC because he was to be supposed to be bad like the previous games. I think even removing his Hyper Shinkuu Hadoken in future MVC would be plausible to people here.
Shoryuken and Tatsu as Ryu’s is tthe most used Ryu Special move than Hadouken? yeah seems believable.
He was stripped down in this version from the previous decent version, Projectile deflect shouldn’t be here in the first place. Deflecting his own hadouken while following up with a mobility option(teleport, air dash or etc) or a more dominant form of projectile like bullets, laser and multi hitting project leave Ryu no choice other than to switch, block or use hyper. While the other character are more sensible for advantages and exploiting game mechanics in an overall form.
