Street Fighter 5 cinematic story trailer released, final beta taking place on January 30th

Capcom has just revealed the first ever details on Street Fighter 5's story mode.

At launch, each character's story will be told with cut scenes -- like the ones seen in the beta's tutorial mode -- illustrated by renowned Japanese artist, Bengus. These story arcs will explain the characters' roles in the game, provide important background information about them, and their relationships with other fighters.

Street Fighter 5 associate producer, Peter "Combofiend" Rosas, noted over on Capcom Unity that this story mode will shed more light on who Necalli is and what his motives are, what exactly happened to Nash after his death in the Street Fighter Alpha series, what Ryu's latest journey entails, and more.

In June 2016, however, fans will receive a cinematic story mode expansion that features fully rendered in-game cut-scenes and takes place between Street Fighter 4 and Street Fighter 3.

"For the first time in franchise history, we are creating a cinematic story experience that takes players deep into the Street Fighter action and mythology through beautifully rendered cut-scenes," Combofiend says.

F.A.N.G revealed as Street Fighter 5's final launch character

Updated: V-move information, tons of screenshots, and an official trailer have been added to this story.

Earlier: During Sony's keynote, Capcom unveiled the latest for Street Fighter 5.

F.A.N.G joins the fray as the final playable character for the game's launch roster. He is the self-proclaimed second in command at Shadaloo, and introduces a new mechanic to Street Fighter 5: poison.

When poison attacks connect, they will slowly drain the opponent's life bar until F.A.N.G is hit or the poison runs out. F.A.N.G fights with long-range, poisonous attacks and uses slippery movements to frustrate and breakdown his opponents.
