As the way you talk it like you don’t have decent understanding at all.
The thing is it’s not the same model as the exact SF4 Dan model and it still doesn’t interact with the environment. It feels it doesn’t belong in the game especially when your playing with it.
And it’s unlikely for them to used the previous SF4 Dan model and modified it to Kage. lol
It’s like saying the alt costumes SF4 alt costumes and default sf4 costumes to be in SFV is okay because it’s not likely thats why they recreate them again even they are the same.
Again it’s not easy to program because of SF4 dan lol
As for saying he was just Dan copy it’s kinda unfair because majority of comparison was about his normal attack. Like ground punches and kicks lol from a same discipline of martial arts so likely it would be the same.
It’s kinda weird to restrict designer to always have unique standing punches and other normals since they karateka.
To judge kage is not by FEW normals but the whole character moveset itself. Judging by few normals is poor analysis.
His gameplay is well designed and unique which is the more important factor in a SF game rather than being turned of because similarities on normals or specials.
