Capcom’s promising a bigger story than ever before for Street Fighter V, and we believe them after seeing the newest trailer for the game. Labelled as the ‘Street Fighter V Cinematic Story Expansion,’ the trailer is actually a teaser for a free slice of story-oriented DLC planned to release in June 2016.
Along with the trailer, Capcom have finally cemented the exact time in which Street Fighter V takes place within its own chronology. Set between Street Fighter IV and Street Fighter III, Capcom’s promising a cinematic story experience never before offered in the series’ history.
Despite the fact that said content isn’t due until post-release, there will be various story elements available on day one. Playing through arcade mode with each character will provide important background information with them, displayed through the use of a retro art style from celebrated Japanese illustrator Bengus.
Street Fighter V releases on February 16 for PC and PlayStation 4, but if you just can’t wait that long, a final beta test will run from January 30-31 as a thank you to the fans. Get some practice in, you’re going to need it!
