The Cutting Room Floor
Today we're going to show off some cool designs and V-Trigger ideas we had during the development of the game.
There are a lot of reasons why they didn't make the final cut, but we'll show you everything from designs that barely failed to make the cut, to stuff that were just jokes.
Seems like it'd be a great idea for when someone is throwing Hadokens at you!
We looked into this idea, thinking it'd be too strong, but it actually wasn't strong at all, and it just made the person hit by it super angry!
All actions can be canceled into a crouch.
While it turned out to be strong, it was also kind of plain, so we scrapped this and tried to come up with more interesting ideas for the V-Skill.
It was considered way too strong and not what we had in mind for Zangief in this game so we scrapped it.
It overlapped with the image of the Sonic Boom, however, so it was nixed.
And it wasn't that interesting either!
It was an interesting concept but not very useful... and the cost of making this kind of idea into reality was pretty high.
We really wanted to do it but... nope, sorry!
These sketches were used in our design docs, so they may seem old.
We'll try to find more stuff like this that we can publish!
