It’s about time to get shifty

Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition gamers might get their arms on the brand new V-Shift mechanic for the primary time as early as later tonight, and now we will all see precisely the way it works.

Capcom has now launched SF5’s in-game tutorial for V-Shift and V-Shift Break which totally breaks down the brand new mechanic together with how a lot harm it does and what occurs if it is blocked.

As was beforehand revealed, each V-Shift and V-Shift Break are carried out by urgent heavy punch and medium kick collectively whereas a participant has not less than one inventory of V-Gauge out there.

What is new, nonetheless, is that this confirms that V-Shift Break assaults shall be secure on block, on high of their prolonged vary, so it looks like a good commerce off for less than doing recoverable harm.

Speaking of harm, we additionally get to see an instance combo follow-up to the V-Shift, which does do common harm.

Not solely that, however I examined it to see if assaults after the dodge shall be instantly scaled down like V-Trigger activations. I can confidentially report although that the combo seems to do its regular, unscaled harm.

The Break assault seems to be to do a comparable quantity of harm in comparison with V-Reversals unsurprisingly as effectively.

V-Shift shall be coming to SF5 within the Season 5 replace which is able to formally be dwell by tomorrow although servers are taking place for upkeep as we speak beginning at 8 p.m. PT.
