This winter, Capcom will release a free balance update patch to Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition. Today, they revealed a list of the changes they’ll be making to some of the game’s characters. Here’s what’s being done to Akuma, for instance:
We have made modifications taking into account the overall gameplay balance, as well as his potential for loop setups.
[Hyakki Gosho]: Move properties have been changed so that it is no longer an overhead. The move can now be blocked crouching.
[Goshoha](normal forward throw): Recovery has been increased by 2 frames.
As for character buffs,
[Demon Armageddon]: This move, which can be canceled into from Ashura Senku (teleport), has had its damaged increased to 421 points.
