Story mode in Street Fighter 5 will feature over an hour of cinematic content, possibility exists for future story expansions

When Street Fighter 5's story mode drops in June, it will feature over 60 minutes of cinematic content, Capcom's Yoshinori Ono recently told GameSpot.


"This is not going to be typical illustrations; this is going to have in-game models, everything will happen in real time, and it's also going to have an hour plus of cinematic content," Ono said.

"We have two approaches that we're actually taking," Ono stated. "First and foremost, there are the character stories, which are really serving as a prologue in terms of getting people up to speed with what's happening in Street Fighter 5.

"It's very similar to what you see in other Street Fighter titles — it has still screenshots, conversations, and banter between characters."
Wrapping all previous Street Fighter titles together, possible we'll see other story mode expansions

Capcom is attempting to combine the plots of all of the previous six Street Fighter titles into one game. The numbered entries 1-5, and the Alpha games as well.

"With Street Fighter 5, the concept that we're trying to accomplish is to wrap everything together — all six titles of Street Fighter together — cohesively," Ono said.

We also might see additional story modes for Street Fighter 5, if there's enough demand from the community.

"There's a possibility of that; we don't have anything planned just yet as we're just working on the first expansion, which is already very ambitious," said Capcom's Matt Dahlgren.

"But time will tell, if there's a lot of fan demand for things. There could be a likelihood in the long-term," he concluded.
