Umehara talks USF4 for the first time in 4gamer interview

Daigo Umehara talked about Ultra Street Fighter IV for the first time in 4Gamer.net interview that was posted today.

- This interview is a part of event report of Umehara's talk event at Amazon Japan HQ on November 6.
- Umehara confirms that he has a tight schedule so he didn't participate Capcom Cup qualifier.
- He isn't convinced about Ultra Combo W. He thinks having powerful Metsu Hadoken is better than having UCW, same should go with most characters.
- He feels that Red Focus will reduce the unfair advantage between characters that are easy/hard to focus. However, he thinks it'll be fun to Armor Break it.
- When asked about Delay Wake-up: "Since Okizeme is currently a big impact, I think it's a good thing. If all characters have the same powerful Okizeme then there's no problem, but [in reality] this game characters with strong/weak Okizeme are quite different it can become one-side game. It's good if this [issue] is eliminated.
- Will you still use Ryu in USF4?: "I like Ryu, but it doesn't mean I can't play other characters. If Ryu becomes much worse then I'll change. And if it's not Ryu, I will probably not go for [middle tier] character again..."
- When asked about Guilty Gear Xrd: Umehara said he had a lot of fun during XX time so if Xrd has that fun elements he wants to play. But in reality he wants to focus on USF4 due to high competition.
- He said ideally he can play GG  Xrd at day and USF4 at night, but it's hard to do that at game centers where people start coming in the evening.
