Street Fighter V Announced Only for PS4 & PC
"The next sequel of Capcom's premier fighter now PS4/PC exclusive"
Capcom was hyping something big by them in terms of what they're announce at this weekend's Playstation Experience including an appearance by Yoshinori Ono himself. It turns out their announcement got leaked yesterday and it is indeed a big one: Street Fighter V
Other than improved graphics that still looks similar to the Street Fighter IV
series, the big deal why it was going to be announced at the Playstation Experience is because Street Fighter V
will be only coming to Playstation 4 and PC. Cross-platform play between both versions is also officially confirmed from the Playstation Experience keynote today.
So far Ryu and Chun-Li are the only confirmed characters as seen in the clip above along with some potential new gameplay mechanics being teased too. The gameplay trailer just released from the Playstation Experience above showcases the return of guard breaks and also destructible environments. More information will be announced and shown off at Capcom Cup next weekend.
Street Fighter V
might be the only announcement Capcom is saying this weekend. Ultra Street Fighter IV
is also coming only to the PS4 in the spring. In addition, rumors this week have been swirling around about a new Devil May Cry
sequel and maybe Deep Down
getting a US release after all. Street Fighter V has no release window yet for the Playstation 4 and PC, but my current guess is early 2016 and late 2015 for arcades.
