When Street Fighter V launches on February 16, players will be able to play through individual character stories that provide background information on each character, their roles in the game, and their relationship with other fighters. The stories feature artwork by famous Japanese illustrator Bengus.
In June, a free “story expansion” update will be released to all players, adding a story that takes place between Street Fighter IV and Street Fighter III and bridges the events that happen in between the two stories. Capcom promises a “cinematic story experience” the first of its kind in a Street Fighter game.
Capcom also confirmed that the first post-launch content for Street Fighter V will be released in March, allowing users plenty of time to play through the single-player content at launch and earn in-game Fight Money to purchase new characters.
