Horrible logo, but I do like that chad Ryu is now the default. It’s funny how Capcom makes their lead characters more and more buff every game (until they turned Chris Redfield back to normal in RE8.)

Well, since this is just a teaser there isn't much to talk about, kind of werid that the the six in the logo is written in Arabic numerals instead of Roman ones like previous SF games, and for some reason the way SF appears in the logo reminds me of the Warner Bros. emblem.
Is it me, or Japanese fighting game characters are more muscular these days? I get that most of them, especially the male characters, are supposed to be strong but in games like Guilty Gear Strive, KOF and Street Fighter characters like Sol Badguy, Ryo, the Ikari Warriors (especially their designs in KOF XIII and XV) and Ryu look buffer than before. I've been replaying games like SF Alpha and KOF '98 and their proportions there looked more "normal"

Chris still looks pretty muscular under that black turtleneck. Plus Inwas under the pretense the problem with Chris was him facially Notlookinglikeyou in RE7.

Feels like a good start for the moment. They jumped the gun back when SFV was announced & launched, and for a long time, SFV felt like it was horribly undercooked at the start.

Even if it is just a trailer, the new character designs already look comparable-but-better than SFV's currently do, and Capcom still has time to fix things up and lock gameplay in before they show it off and set peoples' expectations. I'm hopeful, it seems like they are giving this proper time and consideration and pacing themselves.
