CV Spotlight: S3 CMV
Produced and edited by CPS2, this multi-game collaborative combo video premiered today at the Sydney Summer Slam tournament held in Australia. It was originally intended for OHN9, which got delayed until February.
Its unifying theme is showcasing Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition characters in various classic fighting games. You’ll notice that Charlie and Haggar both make appearances in the video, but that’s because they’re referenced as alternate costumes in SSF4.
There’s a lot of great material here, particularly from the Street Fighter Alpha series and Street Fighter III series. In terms of editing, the overall pace is calm and some of the transitions are very sharp, especially at 1:55 and 3:47. The animated intro by AtomicX was a nice touch, and the laid-back soundtrack is oddly fitting for a Christmas-time video.
