Capcom’s been releasing new Street Fighter V details all week in preparation for the release of the game’s Cinematic Story mode, otherwise known as A Shadow Falls, and rightly so – there’s a whole load of new content coming with it. When the servers go live after maintenance on July 1, players can look forward to the arrival of the aforementioned story mode, two brand new characters (Balrog and Ibuki), new stages, costumes and matchmaking improvements.
The post over on Capcom’s Unity blog reads:
Hey everyone! Tomorrow, we will release a major new update for Street Fighter V. The update will include a ton of new content, including the highly-anticipated cinematic story mode titled “A Shadow Falls” as well as the next two characters to join the roster: Ibuki and Balrog. The story mode will be available to all players as free downloadable content, and all released post-launch characters can be purchased using in-game earned Fight Money or real currency. Hit the jump for the full breakdown of content.
For a quick taste of what to expect in A Shadow Falls, you can watch the launch trailer above, which appears to show the world cowering in fear of M. Bison and his crew of eccentrics.
All of Street Fighter V‘s new content will be available to purchase in-game come tomorrow with the exception of the free story mode, which must be downloaded separately from either Sony’s PlayStation Store or Steam, depending on your platform.
