New info revealed for Street Fighter V’s story mode

street fighter v story

Street Fighter V has been available for four months now. While many have criticized the game due to lack of content, this is the month many are waiting for with the release of the “Cinematic Story Expansion” that was announced by director Yoshinori Ono.

So what can we expect from the Street Fighter V update? Well, aside from Ibuki, we will also get a story that is set between Street Fighter III and Street Fighter IV, bridging the two games narratively. The story mode will take around 3-4 hours long to complete, set over five chapters and all six DLC characters will be playable in the story mode. Currently, only Alex and Guile have been released but with the story mode update, you will also be able to play and “preview” Urien, Juri, and Balrog before they even release.

That’s some pretty good news, especially for those who have been waiting for the other characters. While sadly the yet-to-be-released characters won’t be playable in this year’s Evo (Ibuki’s status still pending), it’s still a nice addition.


Here is some information about the story’s plot:

 “A Shadow Falls,” depicts the ultimate battle between the evil Shadaloo organization and the heroic World Warriors who rise up against them. Seven “Black Moons” are deployed by Shadaloo, granting M. Bison unimaginable power and enveloping the earth in total darkness. Seeing the moons mysteriously appear in the sky, Ryu, Ken, and Chun-Li embark on an epic journey around the world to retrieve fragment pieces that are the key to stopping the “Black Moons” before it’s too late. Along the way, they encounter the rest of the World Warriors, each of whom have their own agendas and motivations in mind. The final battle between good and evil begins now… who will RISE UP?

With E3 happening next week, we should have a set date for the June update.
