During the PlayStation showing at this past weekend's Hong Kong video gaming convention, Capcom's own Yoshinori Ono and Tomoaki Ayano took part in a Street Fighter 5 presentation.


While the two Street Fighter producers mostly recapped information that has already been touched upon, they did reveal a small detail that had been assumed but not yet confirmed.

"We will have a simultaneous [Street Fighter 5] release all across the world. No region will be late, and everyone will be able to play at the same time," Ayano explained.

"This is just a small expression of our gratitude to all of the people here in Hong Kong who've been supporting Street Fighter for so long," Ono added.

We've seen several instances where fighting games have been delayed in different regions. It's great to hear that players everywhere will be able to get their hands on Street Fighter 5 at the same time.

Street Fighter 5 is set to hit PlayStation 4 consoles and PC in Spring 2016.
