Capcom will release an update for Street Fighter 5 this June that will introduce a first for the franchise: a cinematic story mode. That add-on content will be part of a free update, Capcom announced today.
Street Fighter 5 will launch with some story-driven, single-player content, however, in the form of individual character stories that detail their backgrounds and relationships. Those stories will feature illustrations from veteran Capcom artist Bengus (aka "Gouda Cheese"). A peek at some of those illustrations can be seen in the gallery below.
Capcom said in a release that players who complete the game's single-player content should be able to earn enough Fight Money — one of Street Fighter 5's in-game currencies — to purchase a new DLC character. The company plans to release the game's first post-launch content some time in March.
Finally, Street Fighter 5's final beta test period will run Jan. 30-31. The full game is slated to launch Feb. 16 on PlayStation 4 and Windows PC.
