Doesn’t look bug-eyed anymore
Street Fighter 5 hasn’t exactly had the best track record when it comes to the cast’s facial appearances. Characters like Ken and Sakura are notorious for their… less than attractive faces.
A recent Tweet by BurnoutFighter highlights how Sakura appears on the game’s character select screen before and after the latest update. Notably, the character appears to be taking a completely different stance in the two images.
Problems with how Sakura looked were especially apparent in her story costume, which has her donning a sporty look. For whatever reason, she came across as looking particularly bug-eyed in this costume.
Instead of that creepy smile, she now has a more neutral expression. She actually looks a lot closer to the Sakura we knew in Street Fighter 4.
Check out the before and after comparisons below:
