Street Fighter 5 story mode details, trailer
Capcom announced two new single-player modes coming to Street Fighter V, the forthcoming entry in the long-running fighting series, though players will have to wait awhile for one of them.
The game will launch Feb. 16 with Character Stories mode, which gives each of the 16 characters his or her own story-driven campaign that details their motivations, background, and relationships with other characters. These stories feature art by veteran Capcom artist Bengus, who worked on a number of the company’s popular titles such as the Darkstalkers and Marvel vs. Capcom series.
In June, the game will receive the Cinematic Story Expansion as a free downloadable update. Set between SFIII and SFIV, the story will once again focus on series baddie M. Bison and his evil Shadaloo organization. This will be the first time the SF series will include a cinematic story mode, a feature made popular by the Mortal Kombat series.
Capcom also announced that a fourth and final SFV multiplayer beta will run from Jan. 30 to 31, giving gamers one last chance to sample the game before it releases on PS4 and PC. Check out Ryu, Chun-Li, Cammy, and more in the Cinematic Story Expansion trailer above.
