Zangief has EX Double Lariat and Anti-Fly Super Art revealed in new Street Fighter 6 footage

Zangief has EX Double Lariat and Anti-Fly Super Art revealed in new Street Fighter 6 footage

Zangief’s kit and tools have been tweaked and changed quite a bit throughout Street Fighter’s history, and it looks like he’ll be cooking up some new sauce the next time we see him.

Capcom just released some new footage of the Russian wrestler as he appears in Street Fighter 6, which reveals new ways to use his special dummy Zangief in addition to Super Art 1.

The big surprise is that Zangief finally has an Overdrive (EX) version to his Double Lariat, which can also be canceled Super at Tier 2 Hurricane Lariat.

As far as we know, this is the first time the developers have given him EX instructions, and that brings with it a host of new implications for how to use it.

Given the double flare usually performed with all 3 buttons, the move would have to do something different for the Overdrive whether it makes the attack use moves now, only 2 punches or a combination of punches and kicks.

SF6 Director Takayuki Nakayama has confirmed that the Zangief Super’s first level is called Aerial Russian Slam, which appears to act as an anti-air as well as an extension of its level 2.

New footage also shows that the Cyclone Lariat has two different versions. The initial trailer showed him hitting a pose and slamming the Honda into the ground.

according to Nakayama (As translated by Nicholas ‘MajinTenshinhan’ Taylor), Gief will continue to spin and fire the opponent if the player continues holding the button after activating the Super.

With a Level 1 Super Zangief being an Anti-Air Grab, it could mean that the wrestler has no real reversals in their arsenal aside from a Level 3 Command Grab unless they decide to give the OD Double Lariat those characteristics.
