In Street Fighter V, Bison Will Stop Holding Down / Back And Start Being Down Right Fierce

street-fighter-5-bison-dictator

M.Bison. He’s arguably the greatest dictator in the history of gaming. He’s been kicking ass and taking names since 1990. And though he might never have hit the top-tiers of Street Fighter IV, if the new Street Fighter V trailer is anything to go by, he’s about to get buffed pretty significantly.

The trailer itself is only a little over a minute long. But it’s immediately obvious that Capcom have made a lot of creative decisions with Bison’s play style. In SF4 he was a solid footsies character who relied on corner pressure to get damage. Now, in Street Fighter V, he’s rocking some insane offensive options that seem to suggest he’s going to be a cross between footsies and rush-down.

Personally, I always get bored with people spamming fireballs in Street Fighter IV. But that problem is going to be a thing of the past in SF5 thanks to one of Bison’s new moves: a counter attack similar to Rose’s reflect. At one point in the trailer he deflect Charlie’s fireball (or rather, absorbs it and then fires it back at Charlie).  So already Bison’s found new options to get around zoning characters.

The properties on his slide have also changed. In the trailer Charlie gets launched after being hit by the slide, allowing for a juggle combo. That adds a new way to punish ranged characters—catching them walking forward or throwing a fireball, and countering with slide into a combo.

Dictator also has his teleport, but judging by this trailer it’s a heck of a lot faster than it used to be. Using Dictator’s teleport in SF4 was always risky and usually let to you eating either a reaction punish or an option select. This time around the teleport seems fast, not dissimilar to the speed of Ibuki’s command dash in SF4. That likely means it will be used for offense as well as defence.

Speaking of offense, the footage we’ve seen so far makes it clear that Street Fighter V has a lot more air-combo and juggle possibilities than its predecessor. Chun-Li’s trailer showed an air-combo, and now Bison’s does too. I’ve spoken to a lot of the top players in the FGC about this and their opinions are split. Most believe that SFV is going to have many of MVC’s mechanics. Some think that’s a good thing, others not so much.

Back to Bison. His moves now have a psycho energy graphic too, his opponents being wreathed in the purple fumes after being hit with certain moves. The energy definitely has a gameplay affect, rather than being purely visual, but precisely what it does who knows (let us know your thoughts on this in a comment below).

All in all, Bison seems to have a lot more variety in his arsenal in SFV compared to 4. It’ll be interesting to see whether SF4 Bison players (Tampa Bison, Hiro, Phenom) stick with this more offensive Bison.

Combo Breaker’s this weekend and I seriously doubt that Bison will feature in the top 16 (unless Hiro is going…?) But once SFV hits, I reckon we’ll be seeing a lot more of Bison at tournaments. What do you think? Leave us a comment below.
