Street Fighter fans are looking forward to the latest title in the franchise and we have some more news about this latest installment. Capcom has confirmed that Street Fighter 5 is going to have a full story mode, making it the first title in the entire franchise to get a full story mode.
The news was confirmed by series producer Yoshinori Ono in an interview with Engadget. Ono says that the single-player campaign won’t be available at launch. Instead, the full story mode for Street Fighter 5 is going to be released in June as free downloadable content. It will be available to everybody who purchases Street Fighter 5 at no cost. How cool is that price? This should please fans of the game.
The story mode will tie together the events of Street Fighter IV with Street Fighter III that’s placed later in the chronology of the Street Fighter universe. There will be over an hour’s worth of in-game cinematic sequences to look forward to as well. We don’t know how long the story mode is going to take but it’s expected that players will get several hours out of it.
Capcom has said that it’s not going to sell “upgrade packs” like every other game developer right now. It will continuously deliver free updates for Street Fighter 5 to make sure that players have a balanced experience. I can’t wait for this game.
