Not content to merely release a set of patch notes on their blog, Capcom has uploaded a video detailing a few of the changes to the Street Fighter X Tekken engine, complete with close-ups and side-by-side comparisons for your viewing pleasure.

While casual players might not notice many of the balance changes, the tweaks to speed up the pace of the game should be welcome news to players of all skill levels (although the irony of showcasing the faster speed by heavy use of slow-motion video is staggering).

Sadly, there’s no word on whether the 2013 update includes any bonus costumes or similar extras for those who don’t actually care about things like frame data, but we probably shouldn’t expect too much from a free (as the video so helpfully points out) update.
