Street Fighter V Cinematic Story Expansion Trailer
Capcom’s upcoming fighting game, Street Fighter V will feature story mode for the first time in the series.
The story experience features Character Stories and the Cinematic Story Expansion.
“We knew there would be a lot of new players who are jumping into the franchise for the very first time so we wanted to provide a way for everyone to become familiar with the eclectic personalities of each fighter.
Each character has their own storyline that provides background information on what drives them to fight, and what their relationships are to the other characters.
Each story has been illustrated by renowned Japanese illustrator, Bengus, who worked on a variety of Capcom titles in the past. I think you’ll find his colorful, throwback style fits perfectly with the background tales we want to tell about each character.
What answers does Ryu seek in his never-ending journey? What happened to Charlie Nash after his apparent demise in Street Fighter Alpha? Who is Necalli and what does he want? Play the Character Stories to find out all these answers and more! Once you complete all of them you’ll be ready for the next part of the story experience, which is…
“For the first time in franchise history, we are creating a cinematic story experience that takes players deep into the Street Fighter action and mythology through beautifully rendered cutscenes.”
The story takes place between the events of Street Fighter IV and Street Fighter III, which “fully explains everything that transpired in that electrifying time period.”
The story expansion will be available as a free content update in June 2016.
Additionally, a final beta for the game will be kick off on January 30th at 12am PT (8am GMT) and it ends on January 31st at 7pm PT (February 1st at 3am GMT), pre-order the game now to get access to beta.
Street Fighter V is set to be released on February 16, 2016 for PC and PS4.
