Well that didn’t take long! An infinite combo has been found in Street Fighter IV, it can be done with the new character El Fuerte where he cancels a standing fierce punch into a cancelling run over and over again. It can be stopped if you get dizzied but then you can start it up again. Infinite combos are not welcome in fighting games because it usually means that players will play with just that character and use that combo to win all the time (also known as being cheap). There’s a video of it in action below, no word yet on when Capcom will get this fixed however.
Kotaku has an update with a statement from Capcom on this: “In that video El Fuerte does not chain together infinite FP cancels. He chains some together to dizzy the opponent and then repeats a similar combo to win in one round, but that hardly constitutes the use of the term ‘infinite…Let’s wait and see what the Japanese players say about the tiering before we hastily condemn anything.”
