Street Fighter V Story Mode detailed; First DLC character to be available in March
In a first for the franchise, Capcom has announced that Street Fighter V will be getting individual Character Stories and a full-fledged Story Mode.
Street Fighter V’s Character Stories will feature artwork by Bengus, an illustrator who has worked on a number of Capcom titles in the past, and will serve as a prologue to the Story Mode, which will be released as a free expansion this June. According to the Capcom-Unity blog, the Character Stories will include “background information on what drives them to fight, and what their relationships are to the other characters.” As for Story Mode, it’ll offer cinematic cutscenes that bridge the gap between the events of Street Fighter IV and Street Fighter III. And if the teaser trailer above is anything to go by, it looks like M. Bison is planning some kind of massive terrorist attack on the citizens of the world.
Capcom also confirmed the first downloadable character will be available in March. Best of all, the publisher said that players who complete all the Character Stories should earn enough “Fight Money” (Street Fighter V’s in-game currency) to unlock the new fighter for free. Downloadable characters will also be able to purchased with “Zenny,” which can be obtained by spending some real money.
Finally, Capcom wants to give players one last chance to test out Street Fighter V’s online modes before the big launch on February 16. A beta test will be available on January 30 and January 31 for everyone who has already pre-ordered the game for the PC or PS4.
