The lights are on
When Street Fighter V released in February 2016, it was viewed as disappointing thanks to its lack of content at launch and technical problems. Fast forward one year and the game has improved thanks to Capcom's continued content updates. Because of this, several players have warmed up to the game.
Regardless of your opinion of Street Fighter V's launch or its current state, the game is full of iconic characters and new faces that feature cool designs. Kidrobot sent us a case of its blind box vinyl figures to check out, and we thought taking a look at them would be a cool way to commemorate Street Fighter V's first birthday. Unlike the previous figures we looked at, the Street Fighter V line isn't as loyal to the original designs, with the bodies and heads looking more cartoonish in proportion. Still, I enjoyed seeing Kidrobot's takes on my favorite characters like Ryu, Ken, Cammy, and Chun-Li. Also, I really like the Necalli figure.
