Tachikawa's Take On Modern Controls Divides Street Fighter 6 Fanbase
One year later and people are still divided over Modern Controls

Japanese pro player, Tachikawa, who reperesents Burning Core, has been making a name for himself as being one of the top players that continues to use Modern Controls in Street Fighter 6. 

In a recent post, he asked his audience what they felt about Modern Controls and pointed out that there seems to be a regional difference in opinion with more Japanese players willing to try it out, but Westerners hating it quite a bit. 

The responses were varied with some claiming that they hate it, but others pleased for its implementation. 

Modern is popular in Japan and in 2023 we saw Haitani make top 6 at Evo with a Modern Chun li. Tachikawa has also used Modern to great success making it into the Esports World Cup after finishing second at Battle Arena Melbourne. There are other players like Shuto who alternate between Modern and Classic depending on the situation. 

The growth of Street Fighter 6 in Japan can also be attributed in part to Modern controls as the barriers for entry into the game were lowered and has enabled several new players to join the fanbase. 

Players with certain physical difficulties have also found Modern to be a godsend as it enables them to play a game they love.
