Street Fighter V to Add Story Mode as a Free Update

With the release of Street Fighter V rapidly approaching, many fans of the fighting genre are already eagerly awaiting the game’s release, having already had the chance to try out beta builds of the game. It was doubtless that the game would include the standard array of arcade and versus modes the series is known for, but now Capcom has announced that this latest entry in the franchise will also include a story mode that will be added to the game as free DLC in summer.

All of the Street Fighter games so far have included some kind of plot, usually told through the arcade modes. In this mode a chosen character would typically fight a series of random opponents, coming to a climax when they would fight a number of the series ‘boss characters’, typically including the antagonist, M Bison. The older entries in the franchise would tell their stories through character bios and simple epilogues upon beating the arcade mode, but the most recent game Street Fighter IV included fully animated prologue and ending cutscenes for each character’s story. Series main character Ryu’s story was often the one considered to be the series canon, with a number of the other stories not contradicting his also being part of the universe.

Only time will tell whether the story mode for Street Fighter V will be unique for each character or whether there will be one story, requiring the player to take to the ring as a number of the series’ iconic characters. The best part is that it is free, not a feature to be included with updated ‘Super’ versions of the game sold again at almost full price.
