Yea Capcom has been trying to force white boys on us since Abel

Abel
Ed
Luke

All garbage designs


Japan trying hard to appeal to America and they think "cool white boy" is the way
Ed as the face of street fighter 5? If anything it's Rashid.

You forgot, since Alex actually. Albeit his design was actually solid.

EDIT: Saw late that someone else anyway said the same to you and you explained why.

Ed couldn't be the face of SF5 being that he came out in season 3

Ed was the beta test for Luke

how? they serve different functions. they have nothing in common other than being blonds

Blonde hair and blue eyes the aryan look is just how Japan tends to view “all American” men since the 90s going back to Terry Bogard,Ken,Guile,Alex, and now Luke it just is what it is.. it’s a cultural thing

That's not the point I'm making. My point is Capcom keep trying to force the cool white boy aesthetic and they're falling behind

I mentioned earlier how Leroy had Twitter poppin when he was announced. Guilty Gear Strive used Virgil Abloh's aesthetics and were smart enough to announce Nago from jump :russ:

Capcom wants the cool without the black. You wanna make the hip hop SF but push them corny ass Luke and Jamie designs

Two blonde, cocky, hip hop dressing white boys

Ed was them testing out a "cool" white boy and simpler controls

Ed didn't pop like that so they turned the cocky up and made Luke, the "face" of SF6
cocky and blonde is quite a few people on the cast

ed mostly dresses like baby bison. when he doesnt have the baby bison gear on, he looks like a boxer going on a run.

even their style of play is different

You really being pedantic about this?

Like this ain't Ed's theme???



Come on breh:mjlol:

Ed was essentially a "backdoor pilot" to early SF6 ideas, mainly hip hop aesthetic, simpler controls, and ushering in a new generation (Balrog essentially training his replacement)

so you go from hip hop dressing to hip hop theme? neither of which seem to have an impact of his character at all.

i get that some of you are mad at all the blondes in street fighter, but this paranoia white board stuff isnt it.
