Street Fighter V – Cinematic story expansion & two new characters now available

Capcom has released a major new update for Street Fighter V that includes a ton of new content, including the highly-anticipated cinematic story mode titled “A Shadow Falls” as well as the next two characters to join the roster: Ibuki and Balrog.

As Capcom noted, the story mode will be available to all players as free content, and all released post-launch characters can be purchased using in-game earned Fight Money or real currency.

The Street Fighter V cinematic story expansion is divided into five acts and takes place between Street Fighter IV and Street Fighter III, bridging the events that happen in between the two stories.

“A Shadow Falls,” depicts the ultimate battle between the evil Shadaloo organization and the heroic World Warriors who rise up against them. As the story unfolds, players will enter battles using each of the core 16 characters, in addition to the 6 (released and unreleased) 2016 DLC characters, each with their own unique contribution to the epic clash.

“A Shadow Falls” is free downloadable content available to all players and it marks the first time in franchise history that consumers will be able to play through this type of cinematic experience in a Street Fighter game.

In order to celebrate this announcement, Capcom released two new trailers for Street Fighter V that can be viewed below!
