Pretend you’re Daigo Umehara in next Street Fighter

Capcom has a neat new feature for the next Street Fighter game that will allow you to try to recreate the most epic of all Street Fighter moments.

If you’ve been following the video game industry for any considerable length of time then you’ve doubtless seen the amazing Street Fighter video of famed competitive SF player, Daigo Umehara, pulling off a ridiculous reversal of fate in a tournament.

If you haven’t, you can watch the video here.

The game in question is Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike which will be coming to Xbox 360 and PS3 later this year with full online support. The training mode will eventually challenge you to pull off this ridiculous move.

We’ve no doubt that seeing this explained, step-by-step will be humbling to say the least. Not to mention the awe of seeing what it takes to actually recreate it…then imagining how good he must be at the game to be able to improvise that while under pressure and being watched by thousands.

Thanks, Kotaku.
