SFV “A Shadow Falls” and Two New Characters Release

Hey everyone! On July 1st, we will release a major new update for Street Fighter V. The update will include a ton of new content, including the highly-anticipated cinematic story mode titled “A Shadow Falls” as well as the next two characters to join the roster:  Ibuki and Balrog. The story mode will be available to all players as free downloadable content, and all released post-launch characters can be purchased using in-game earned Fight Money or real currency.

Cinematic Story Mode

The Cinematic Story Mode must be downloaded as a separate update from the PS Store or Steam Store. All players will have to first patch Street Fighter V with the 1.04 update by logging into CFN and then download the Cinematic Story Mode update for it to be accessible in the game.

Server Maintenance

We will be conducting server maintenance starting June 30th at 14:00 PT / 10 PM BST / 11 PM CET with the update going live on July 1st at 00:00 PT (midnight) / 08:00 BST / 09:00 CET.

“A Shadow Falls”

The Street Fighter V cinematic story expansion is divided into five acts and takes place between Street Fighter IV and Street Fighter III, bridging the events that happen in between the two stories. “A Shadow Falls,” depicts the ultimate battle between the evil Shadaloo organization and the heroic World Warriors who rise up against them.  As the story unfolds, players will enter battles using each of the core 16 characters, in addition to the 6 (released and unreleased) 2016 DLC characters, each with their own unique contribution to the epic clash. “A Shadow Falls” is free content available to all players and it marks the first time in franchise history that consumers will be able to play through this type of cinematic experience in a Street Fighter game. The epic battle between good and evil begins soon… who will RISE UP?


Announced earlier this week, Balrog is one of the most iconic characters in Street Fighter history, first appearing as a boss character in Street Fighter II.  He’s always been one of the most vicious characters to ever appear in the series, using his devastating boxing style and questionable tactics to do whatever it takes to win a fight. Balrog’s playstyle in Street Fighter V puts the focus on his powerful punches, and with the use of his V-Trigger, he can chain these attacks together to deal some serious damage.


Also being added to the SFV roster, Ibuki is a very tricky, technical character with loads of new ninjutsu tricks up her sleeve. Ibuki is a mobile character with various target combos, but now she has even more ways to mix-up the opponent with the ability to glide through the air and toss out ninja bombs, making it very difficult to predict where she will land and where her next attack will come from.

In addition to “A Shadow Falls” and the next two characters, the update will also include:

  • New stages – Balrog’s Las Vegas stage and Karin’s Kanzuki Family Private Beach stage are brand new and will be available to purchase using Fight Money or real currency. Additionally, three new alternate stage options will become available.

  • New costume options – Premium Battle Costumes for all 20 released characters, as well as Karin’s Premium Summer Costume, will be available to purchase using real currency. Balrog and Ibuki’s Story Costumes will be purchasable using either Fighter Money or real currency.
  • In-game Currency Shop – The in-game store will be upgraded with the PlayStation Store and Steam real money purchase options, for their respective platform. For players who want to purchase content like new characters, stages and costumes outright without using Fight Money, the process will be familiar with purchases happening through the established first party infrastructures.
  • Matchmaking improvements – Faster and smarter matching, resulting in higher quality matches and a better online experience overall.
The pricing for the extra Street Fighter V content is as follows:

New Characters
(FM)100,000 | $5.99/€5.99/£4.99
New Stages
(FM)70,000 | $3.99/€3.99/£3.29
Alternate Stages
(FM)40,000 | $1.99/€1.99/£1.69
Story Costumes
(FM)40,000 | $1.99/€1.99/£1.69
Premium Costumes (No Fight Money option)
$3.99/€3.99/£ 3.29

That’s it for today! Enjoy the weekend with all the new content and be sure to tell us what you think by sounding off in the comments or sending us a message at @StreetFighter on Twitter.

Balrog to be included with Ibuki and the Cinematic Story Mode Update

Hello again, Street Fighters! We have a ton of new information to share with you today regarding the latest update to Street Fighter V! As many of you may have seen last night during CPT Premier Event CEO2016, Balrog will also be released with this update alongside Ibuki and the Cinematic Story Mode! The update will go live in all territories on July 1st at 00:00 (midnight) PST after the scheduled server maintenance is complete, which starts on June 30th at 14:00 PST.

That’s not all though! We have even more content lined up for this release including additional costumes and new stages!

Balrog is one of the most iconic characters in Street Fighter history, first appearing as one of the Four Kings of Shadaloo in Street Fighter II as a boss character.  He’s always been one of the most vicious characters to ever appear in the series, using his devastating boxing style to knock out his opponents.

Before joining Shadaloo and moving his way up in the ranks to become one of M. Bison’s highest ranking officers, he was one of the greatest boxing champions of his time. His style of boxing, which uses illegal techniques such as head-butting, eventually got him banned from competing due to causing extreme harm to his opponents.  In short, Balrog will do whatever it takes to win a fight and with the end goal always being to obtain more wealth.

Outside of Street Fighter II, he also appeared in Street Fighter Alpha 3 and Street Fighter IV, not to mention various cross-over titles such as Capcom vs SNK and Street Fighter X Tekken.

Balrog in Street Fighter V still remains as one of Shadaloo’s top enforcers, working alongside M. Bison, F.A.N.G and Vega.  Be sure to check out his Character Story and of course the Cinematic Story Mode to see what sort of trouble he gets himself into this time around.

His playstyle in Street Fighter V puts the focus on his devastating punches, and with the use of his V-Trigger, he can chain these attacks together to deal serious damage. He also has a few cheap attacks up his sleeve to keep the fight in his favor, so don’t let your guard down for a moment!

V-Skill: KKB

A unique move that twirls his body while moving forward. While activated, you can dodge projectiles as well as string together attacks. You can even activate KKB before a special hits you, allowing you to be a technical inside fighter.


V-Trigger: Crazy Rush

A chance to be the aggressor when activated! Steam rises from his body and allows you to string together specials like Charging Buffalo and Bursting Buffalo.


Critical Art: Gigaton Blow

Unleash the fury from your fist with this simple, yet destructive critical art. It can be connected with various moves. Make sure to include it in your combos.

New Stages and Costumes

To ensure this release packs an even bigger punch, Balrog’s story costume and premium battle costume will become available on 7/1,  as well as a revival of the classic Las Vegas stage from Street Fighter II! The streets are lined with neon signs as you are cheered on by a fired up crowd.

That’s not all either. This summer, Street Fighter V is about to heat up! The Kanzuki Family Private Beach will now be available as an all new battle stage. This will also be released with the update on 7/1 and can be purchased for 70,000 fight money. Also, Karin’s premium summer costume will be available to purchase as part of this latest update. These can both be purchased from the PS Store and Steam for $3.99 / €3.99 / £3.29.

As a reminder, all character Battle Costumes will be available for purchase on July 1st through both the PS Store and Steam. Check out this previous post for the full rundown.

Juri and Urien

All of you probably saw the teaser we released for both Juri and Urien as part of the Balrog trailer. While they aren’t ready for official release just yet, they will be playable in the Cinematic Story Mode, and we wanted to share their official artwork showcasing their designs. As you can see, they have a brand new look with Urien in a high-end suit and Juri in a biker outfit. Updates on their playstyles will be coming soon!

As always, thanks to all our fans for the continued support. We’re committed to making Street Fighter V the best in the series and value everyone’s feedback as we continue to update the game. We’re eager to hear what you think of the Cinematic Story Mode and all the additional content included with this update coming later this week.

Until then, follow us on Twitter @StreetFighter for the latest news and updates.

My first attempt at playing a street fighter game for real, by that i mean trying to get good in online mode.

The thing is, the matchup is completly stupid, im a newbie and get matched up against people too ♥♥♥♥in good.

Most of you will say "Well pratice more", well to that i say how can you pratice a game that has no arcade mode, and the people online is too good so you cant even pratice against real people because you cant even input a single command before you die

I do not regret buying this game, cause it helped me see how much im better with games like Mortal Kombat, Injustice and Killer Instinct wich had much more bearable matchmaking.

So for those of you thinking that the technical and single player part of the game won't bother you too much, it's really not that easy to ignore. There is an 8 frame delay plus bad netplay, which is kind of a meme but makes the game ♥♥♥. Also you might get low fps which makes the game run slowmo, even if you have good specs. I have it and if people pick certain stages or character, there's nothing you can do about it. The very core gameply might not be bad, but the game as a whole is utter garbage.

This game is a far cry from Street Fighter 4. The netcode is bad, to even get basic color it's tedious, very little variety in characters playstyle, the neutral feels like a straight up brawl, anti airs are weak encouranging a large amount of jumping, one sided rollback due to player desync, lobbies don't work often. The list goes on and on I deeply regret buying this game after trying so many other fighters this game looks like a sixty dollar alpha. The very barebones of this game is good ,but capcom has a long way to make this a acceptable product.

With the new updates made in 2016, especially the Story Mode, I feel this game is well worth the $. As someone who does not enjoy ranked play, There is a lot here now (a several hour story mode, a short character story for each of the 20 + characters, survival mode, challenge mode and demonstrations) to keep us casual Street Fighter fans busy. You can earn a lot of the DLC just by playing the various modes, which is also nice. Overall, if you like Street Fighter at all, I would recommend this game. Hopefully Capcom can continue to support it long into the future.

SF5 may not be as technical or deep as SF4 however it makes newcomers to the series like me get interested in the street fighter series in general. My first SF game i played was played SF2 champion edition on the genesis but i was a kid back then and i didn't took it seriously but however SF5 made me into a SF fan.

One thing i liked about this game over the others is that its alot more easier to chain combos. Where usually in previous SF games you only got 1 frame to link a combo, but in SF5 you got 3 frames which leaves more time to chain combos.

The graphics in this game are phenomenal! On PC at 1080p Max settings of course. Compared to the PS4 version, the PC has better anti aliasing, added motion blur and lastly better shadows where the PS4 version, shadows looked really blocky.

I had one complaint which is the content i know i know other people said the same thing a million times with lesser character roster and stages. But as of right now i think its much more justifiable now as it is when it first released.

If you've never play a SF game before this may be a good start

P.S MadCatz TE2+ works on PC! Just download the xinput driver on MadCatz website and you're good to go!!!

HONEST REVIEW: I would only recommend this game for any person that remembers what it was like to truly win at something and not just be handed a participation trophy. Fighting games and particularly Street Fighter games require 100s of hours of practice to just get good. There are no short cuts, there are no easy level ups. You have to devote yourself to learning how to beat the other person with your character of choice. Playing street fighter is like playing chess and poker in 1/12 of a second increments. You have to make the right move or the right call FAST! There's no easy win here boys and girls. It's a game where it's just you and your opponent, no teams to bail you out or blame for their terrible plays. You have to hold that "L" all to yourself, so if you want to know what it's like to really be a winner then pick up this game and play it. Play it until you hate, then play it some more until you realize how amazing this game truly is. Once you finally reach that level where you can dominant your opponent. That's when you'll know what it feels like to truly be a winner.

• Amazing multiplayer with a good list of characters and more to be added (well balanced as of 7-1-16)
• Awesome story mode (4 hours of content with some good humor and surprises)
• Training mode (with recorder) to practice numerous setups. Needs a few more tweaks and online mode to practice with a friend, but taht should be coming.
• Graphic Modding (don't like a skin. Change it)
• Capcom is fully backing this game with updates on a monthly basis so more content will be added all the time. Majority of the content can be earned for free by playing the game or paid for if you wish. Only cosmetic items like premium outifts will cost you.

The game was released early as it was rushed to be ready for the 2016 tournament season. The multiplayer was finished, but everything else was not so the game has suffered in reviews. Since Feb. the game has seen a number of additions with more coming so I believe most of these will be addressed in up to a years time with that said as of 7-1-16 there are still a few things that need to be addressed but are not game breaking such as:

• Rage quitting in ranked (no true deterrent as of yet), but can be avoided in casuals or battle lounges
• 8 frames of input delay (this affects your ability to react to punish moves. It's currently under review by capcom to address it)
• Rather long load times between matches. 30 seconds to a minute feels like forever when you are staring at a blank screen.
• The in game recording of your stats is still not functional (It's sort of like a fitness tracker for your character)
• Model clipping that makes the game feel a little cheap and unpolished. (I have a feeling this will be addressed last as it's only noticeable on load screens).

Insane load times between matches. At least 25% of your time spent will be on a load screen for no reason (SSD etc). Gameplay is nice and clean. Story mode is short and way too easy even for beginners. No classic arcade style. Terrible "Survival Mode" which professional players have stated is too random or difficult (takes 20minutes to hour to do no dying or full reset.).

Loaded with DLC in the form of characters. There's in-game currency but you will not be able to buy them all (50 currency for winning match new character costs 100,000). You get currency for Story and other modes but those are all 'one-time'.

Nearly everything has a massive grind gate in currnecy form or real life money.

Check what stick you have or would like to own and see if SFV recognizes it natively as well.

Several months have gone since the game's release, many, many promises were made since that time so now that the game has more characters and the big "July update" that all the fans were saying we should wait for before judging the game is out ... Street Fighter V is still a joke of a game.

The single-player content is laughable when it's not depressing, the online is barebones, lacking any special modes besides Causal and Ranked matches, there's constant server problems, STILL no system to punish rage-quitting, the big "Story Mode" that took 5 months to make is an absolute joke and all of this is being sold as a fully-priced 60€ game. Plus the Season Pass. And the mountains of microtransactions in the game's store.

So no, it's not worth it. Not when there are plenty of cheaper, more polished games available to buy instead.

One sided roll back, matchmaking is terribly slow, pointless loading times and insane amounts of downtime after a fight due to post victory or defeat animations.

You'll be spending 80% of your time looking at menus/loading/praying you don't get into a teribly laggy game. Busted

Good gameplay and mechanics that are completely marred by the host of problems in the game which Capcom continually refuse to acknowledge (and in some cases aggravate). Inadequate rage quitter punishment, horrifically overpriced dlc (Capcom Pro Tour DLC is $25 on PS4 as a bundle meaning it's likely that it'll be even more expensive on Steam, not that it's worth the $25 anyway), awful survivial mode (which really acts as more of punishment than anything else) and STILL no Arcade Mode 6 months after release.

The way Capcom have treated SFV is abhorrent, a complete lack of content at launch which Capcom have decided will be fixed by introducing more (paid) dlc, they haven't even done the decent thing and added free dlc to make up for the lack of content (a good example of this would be Splatoon). Practically ignoring the community which call for fixes on these issues to instead focus on lining their own pockets.

I want to recommend SFV but until Capcom stops being greedy and fixes the main problems plauging it I simply cannot. I refuse to defend Capcom any longer.
