A video has leaked online purportedly showing Street Fighter V. Capcom has since set the video to private and taken down mirrors, but Kotaku was able to grab some screenshots of the action. Although Chun Li and Ryu fighting in a neon-lit street is exciting, the big news is that according to the video, the game will be exclusive to the PlayStation 4 and PC. Is it a timed exclusive, or the real deal? We’ll probably know more when Capcom decides to actually talk about it, but just by looking at sales of the Xbox One in Japan, (less than 40k lifetime to date) it’s not a surprising development.
In related brawler news, Dead or Alive 5 Last Round is coming to Steam on February 17th. This will be only the second game in the Dead or Alive fighting game series to make it to PC at all. (Previously, there was the Dead or Alive Online beta in 2009.) Here’s a riddle for you: What is a PC fighting game without online multiplayer? I don’t know either, but Koei Tecmo says that online functionality will be patched in “within 3 months” of the launch. Last Round is the supposedly final iteration of Dead or Alive 5 which originally launched in September 2012. Besides PC, it will be available on Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation 4. The console versions will launch with online multiplayer.
