Come for the punching, but stay for the story in Street Fighter V

, | News

Remember the epic moment when Ryu betrayed Ken? Or that time when Chun Li finally got revenge for her father’s death? Apparently there are Street Fighter fans that love the convoluted soap opera stories that go with the Street Fighter games. It’s not all hundred-hand-slaps and whirlwind kicks. There’s drama! For all the players that look forward to more exposition and histrionics, Sony and Capcom have some good news. They’ve announced that Street Fighter V will get a free story expansion post-launch. Confusingly, he storyline will take place between the events of Street Fighter IV and Street Fighter III.

M. Bison and Shadaloo will be a main focus of the story…and I can’t say much more than that right now.

Will anything in the game be better than Raul Julia’s portrayal of M. Bison? “For you, the day Bison graced your village was the most important day of your life. But for me, it was Tuesday.” Street Fighter V launches on PlayStation 4 and PC on February 16th.
