M. Bison is been the most recognizable antagonist in Street Fighter history, and a fitting main villain for the first round of Street Fighter Exceed! He brings the crushing might of Psycho Power to unleash tons of Critical attacks, and his attacks are difficult to deal with when empowered.
Sagat is a well-rounded powerhouse that has been a recurring villain since his first appearance in Street Fighter 2. The archetypical bully, Sagat attacks from a position of greater size, speed, power, and confidence than his opponents, pummeling them into submission with an oppressive suite of attacks.
Vega is one of the classic poking characters in Street Fighter, and makes heavy use of the arena's walls to attack. We've incorporated those themes into his Exceed incarnation, making him stronger and (eventually) faster when he's up against a wall. His attacks feature great range, which he needs to leverage to make up for his below-average speed.
Akuma is the epitome of a high-risk, high-reward fighter. When a player picks Akuma at the character select screen, they know that they're going to have to play carefully but aggressively to maximize his advantages and minimize his weaknesses. We've built Akuma in Street Fighter Exceed to embody this risk and reward.
Dan isn't the most mainstream Street Fighter character, but there's something innately charming about his frantic, almost accidental style of fighting. In Exceed, we've captured that feel by building around Wild Swings–when a player chooses to attack blindly with the top card of their deck. Or, as we like to call it, Exceed's version of "button mashing".
Guile is a powerful defensive character in Street Fighter. His charging attack style forces him to play predictively and set up moves in advance. Most of his attacks give him the opportunity to set up his next assault or to reposition himself advantageously for a follow-up, slowly breaking through enemy defenses while repelling their attacks.
Chun-Li has a wide toolbox of attack to maintain position and tempo in Street Fighter, and we wanted to capture that style of play in Exceed. Chun-Li will often work for just the right position or just the right moment to strike. That patience and payoff are the keys to her focused style of play in Exceed.
Crimson Viper was first introduced in Street Fighter 4. Using an assortment of integrated gadgets to enhance her fighting style is a key motif of her style, despite the usual rule of the World Warrior tournament not allowing weapons. Our take on C. Viper is sure to make you feel like you have an unfair advantage in combat!
Last year, we funded the second season of Exceed on Kickstarter! Now at last, we have the physical production copy of the big collector's box–the most impressive fighting card game we've created yet, perhaps the most impressive production that we've ever created in the history of Level 99 Games!
