I wanna see some NG/DI stages remade. Alpha 2/3 I think had the best stages in the series though.
Yeah I like the 2I/NG stages the best.

Gill's 2nd Impact Stage


Elena's 2nd Impact Stage


Ryu and Ken's New Generation Stage


Alex's New Generation Stage


Alex's 2nd Impact Stage


Yun and Yang's New Generation and 2nd Impact Stage

Would definitely love some more original stages rather than yet another set of remakes or holiday tweaks of the starting stages. Skies of Honour, Kanzuki Beach, Temple of Ascension, Metro City Bay Area, and the CPT stages (hell, even Dojo) are all great, shame that we haven’t gotten a fully-original DLC stage since Season 2.

So Ken's finally getting his stage.

He's been talking about Ken and Blanka's SF2 stages since before AE launched, don't expect anything soon, if at all.

I'd still love to see original stages for the newcomers who have never had a home stage of their own.
  • F.A.N.G - The stage from his concept art.
  • Necalli - An Aztec temple overtaken by plants and snakes and covered with ancient Necalli art.
  • Ed & Falke - Futuristic Neo Shadaloo headquarters with the non-playable members carrying out various tasks in the background.
  • Menat - She likes to collect souvenirs from around the world, so I think a boat filled with her belongings traveling down the Nile would suit her. You'd pass camels, pyramids, and other Egyptian landmarks in the background.
  • Zeku - A Bushinryu forest shrine in Japan -- perhaps something like this.
  • G - A Western desert town with a podium and crowd of admirers in the background. Mountains would be visible in the distance, and occasionally a steam train would roll through. G would stand at the podium and captivate citizens with a speech if he is not selected for battle.

Yeah, all gorgeous. I would love more stage transitions either in battle or the next round. Capcom played with this a bit in SFxT and for the Hong Kong stage in SFV. Overall, I don't really like the stages much in SF4 and V. Some are great like the beach, Metro City and the remade stages, but the airfields and waterfall levels just have no character to them.

On another note, I picked up Cody over the weekend and he's so much fun to use. His entire move set is a Final Fight homage complete with his FF1 auto combo. I'm not really good with him yet so I've been mostly getting bodied in Casual. I don't dare to take him in Ranked yet.

I think stage design in fighting games overall is pretty crappy these days. Nobody is really hitting it out of the park.

We talking stages? O shiet.

I think the 2i, NG, Alpha 2 and CVS1 have the best stages. I would like some of those back, but on the other hand, I would like some more new ones.

3S, Alpha 3 and CVS2 were not as good, imo.

The original SFV stages are bland to me. The newer ones are good. I really like the "Ring of" stages.

Tekken 7 stages are alright. For some reason they are not that appealing to me. They are good, but don't have "flair", idk.

MK11 are nice. SamShodown are good looking for the most part, I wish the graphical fidelity was better though.

I'm not a huge fan of NRS games aesthetically, but the last two NRS games have some of the best stages this gen. Tekken 7 is pretty trash on the stage front. Sam Sho has a couple dope ones. Genjuro's stage being the main standout with that red sky (shout out to the pirate galleon too).

Yea, MK11 is pretty damn good on this front. Strangely enough, I don't like their tournament stage though.

I wish it was some random huge arena in outworld or edenia somewhere with huge banners and flags that had the art for the current major tournament that is happening.

It's pretty garish. It looks like a cheesy game show stage, which I guess they're going for.

I like seeing the old Midway cabinets, but like go full meta and make the stage an arcade.

Seeing some 2I love gets me all teary eyed.

SF5 pays tribute to damn near everything Capcom under the sun but ohh would it light me up inside seeing some 2I music or stages dropped in.

And Sean.

I'm disappointed Sagat's stage was literally SF2's stage. He's had several variations of stages in front of a reclining Buddha, it's really not difficult to think of a different variation, angle for the statue, time of day, and say "here's a new stage for Sagat".
No, instead we got the exact same one from SF2. Which is good, but also... from SF2.

At some point, Street Fighter should throw in Rival Schools characters, but affected by the progression of time in the same way that Sakura, Karin, and the Final Fight characters were. It’d be so rad to see adult Roy Bowman running for mayor against Cody or a jacked Akira Kazama leading her own biker gang.

Remind me why they arc like that at the top for? Is it because of the CRT screen of the arcade cabinet?

so what exactly is tournament mode? no details yet?

Is it just setting up brackets for online/local play?
Here are some details


It does seem like all the work will be handled in the server. So someone creates it, sets the rules, and then people just have to show up. At least that's what we hope.

But I hope it works that way. So people can join, play, and advance and not have to worry creating a room and the rules and also reporting it to the TO on Twitch or Discord.
