Actually, the Vuck thing is an internal joke. Not meant as a limit.

that's the plan
and for the folks at home:

hopefully all the animations are canned so it will still play the same, and I hope to GOD there is no "LOL 3D Fighting" strafing

As far as I know, the news on it says that it'll play like a 2D game.

Were you really expecting 2D graphics, however? No doubt, I would've preferred 2D as well, but it's just such an unrealistic expectation considering, well, many factors (the lack of 2D talent in the mainstream industry at this point, the 3D trailer, the ease of making and using 3D over 2D, etc...). I think it looks fine how it is. My main gripe is with the rather bland background characters, and a bit of odd anatomy on Ryu (huge feet, and the chest is funky, though I'd say huge feet have always been a stylistic staple of SF games). The colors and rendering look nice, and I'm glad they're not striving for a super realistic look with this that the other 3D fighters do.

KOF XII has been promised to be the best 2D game ever, so I guess you can still look forward to that.

It's hard to say what I was truly expecting, but I think I can say with confidence that if it were 2D I wouldn't've been shocked.
Yeah, the hands on guys say it plays 2D, but all "2D gameplay" means to them is moving left/right.
2D graphics ensured canned animations, which ensures instant readability/feedback, with 3D and the luxury of having all moves transition smoothly, I doubt they will can the animations.

For a 3D street fighter, I don't think I could ask for it to look any better though, it is a little odd (crotch), definitely looks like a street fighter game

I totally agree with your suspicions on how genuine the 2D gameplay will be, but don't worry too much. There was a recent fighter named "Battle Fantasia" that was made with 3D graphics and proves to totally represent 2D gameplay despite that. Makes use of 'canned animation,' as you say.

See a video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JwjJa9l1cSo

It's kinda choppy, but again, that's just how that team handled it. It seems to really follow suit with other Arc System games. My point is just that it's possible for this to be genuinely 2D in gameplay.

the proportions and anatomy are ridiculous for a 3d game! they should have acknowledged the intestines and hips if they were going to joke about realism.

btw whats with the small but rockhard dick and complete lack of testes?  if you're going to make a game that displays his heritage in that way, you should make it a little more...normal
A mistake is a mistake.
The same mistake twice is a bad habit.
The same mistake three or more times is a motif.

Ryu's chest looks scary. Does he need some eatuns?
