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.
