June looks to be a pretty big month for Street Fighter V. The long awaited story mode “A Shadow Falls,” drops this month as well as the next DLC chracter, Ibuki.
“A Shadow Falls” will be a 3 to 4 hour story. It will be 5 chapters long and will drop at the end of this month. The story takes place between Street Fighter III and Street Fighter IV. Players will be able to witness all events that took place between those two games.
“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?
Another bit of cool news is that all six DLC characters will be fully playable in story mode. Balrog, Urien, and Juri’s story mode will be available to play before their actual release later this year. This will give you a preview of the upcoming characters so you can get a feel for their play styles.
The Zenny shop will not be put into the game. Transactions will be handled through the PlayStation Store and Steam. Alex and Guile will no longer be free to play when the update goes live. Here is a breakdown of how much everything will cost with in-game and real currency:
As you can see, premium costumes are also included in the chart. You will finally be able to get that “Hot Ryu” skin you missed out on, because you didn’t get the game from GameStop.
It makes the Street Fighter fan base feel a little bit more at ease now that Capcom has addressed the communication problem. A lot of people, including myself were a bit ticked off that Capcom waited until the end of last moth to tell us Ibuki was getting delayed. Lets hope Capcom can keep us this informed as time goes by.
