Capcom Details the Big June Update for Street Fighter V

xOIN7Xs.jpg

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.

Plot description:

“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.

Here is a Quick Look at Cuphead’s Platforming Gameplay

The old school, Disney cartoon inspired game Cuphead is almost ready to be released on Xbox One and PC. Just ahead of E3, StudioMDHR along with IGN decided it would be nice to show off some gameplay.

The game features run-and-gun gameplay that could be compared to Mega Man. In the video you can see Cuphead fight his way through a forest level ducking, dodging, jumping, and shooting a few enemies you will encounter while playing the game. Check out the IGN video above.

Cuphead was shown off at E3 2014 when it was less than 50% complete. It was originally supposed to come out last year, but StudioMDHR had to delay the game. It is now expected to come out this year on XB1 and PC, but there is no release date just yet. Despite the delay, it looks like StudioMDHR has been hard at work. The game still looks great and has my attention. Cuphead’s art direction makes it one of the most original games I’ve seen in quite some time. I will definitely be picking it up.

Capcom (Finally) Gives a Release Date for the Big SFV March Update

Many of us Street Fighter fans have been impatiently waiting for Capcom to give a release date for the SFV March update. Today Capcom has finally delivered and it is just as many of us have expected: Capcom will wait until the end of the month to drop all of this content. Thats the good news. The bad news is that there will be 2 separate drops of content.

March 28th (Mon) we will get all of the content that has been talked about all month. The Challenge Mode, Online Rematch Option, 8 player lobbies, various bug fixes and game improvements. All of that will be up for download on Monday. Notice there is no mention of Alex.

Two days later on March 30th (Wed), the in-game shop will be added as well as Alex. The in-game shop is where you will be able to purchase Alex, plus costumes for other characters. Alex will cost 100,000 Fight Money so I hope you have been grinding. Costumes will cost 40,000 Fight Money each.

One feature that will not be included with the update is the real money functionality known as Zenny in SFV. Since it is not ready, Alex will be available to play for a free trial period for all players until the Zenny shop opens.

As a thank you for your patience, Chun Li and Ryu’s story costumes will be available for free on March 30th.

After being so quiet about it all month, its nice to finally have some closure from Capcom. Many fans, including myself, are not quite happy about all of this dropping at the end of the month though. Street Fighter V essentially launched as an $60 early access game. It weird to get all of of these features over a month since the game has been out. Hopefully Capcom can straighten things out from here on out.

I am fully enjoying the game, but some things like this are a bit irritating. How do you feel about this whole incomplete game fiasco? Sound off in the comment section.
