Yesterday at PlayStation Experience (PSX) in San Francisco, Capcom revealed a bunch of new Street Fighter V details!
First up, the final character to be confirmed for the initial launch roster will be F.A.N.G. – the self-proclaimed second in command of Shadaloo! When he’s not busy overseeing Shadaloo’s operations, he shows his passion through conducting evil experiments within Shadaloo’s research facility. His sinister long range attacks and slippery movements, paired with his ability to poison his opponents, is enough to leave his opponents feeling ill. You can see F.A.N.G’s poisonous moves in action in the brand new gameplay trailer below or in the screenshots at the bottom of this article.
Capcom also confirmed the names of the six challengers who will be added into Street Fighter V throughout 2016: Alex, Guile, Ibuki, Balrog, Juri and Urien. All of these characters are earnable through gameplay for free, but for those who can’t wait, they will also be available to purchase for instant access. More details on exact release timing for each of the characters will be shared next year.
Also confirmed at the PlayStation Experience earlier today was the Street Fighter V 2016 Season Pass for PS4. The Pass will give players instant access to all six additional characters when they are released, as well as a premium costume for each and an exclusive PS4 theme. The Season Pass is available to pre-order now in North America and a Deluxe Edition (game plus season pass) is available in Europe. No word yet on what will be available in Australia.
There are two ways to receive bonus content in Street Fighter V – through Fight Money (obtained for free by completing various in-game challenges) and Zenny (purchased using real money and used to receive the content immediately). Zenny will be available to purchase in packages of varying sizes.
Street Fighter V aims to provide players with choices for how they access all game content, ensuring that the initial purchase of the game is the only one that fans will ever have to make in able to receive all future content.
