Street Fighter‘s most persistent antagonist returns for more in the next chapter of Capcom’s legendary franchise.
Though Ultra Street Fighter IV may still be a fresh entry to the SF saga, Capcom is already gearing up for Street Fighter V. Ushering in the next-gen debut of Capcom’s long-running fighting game franchise, Street Fighter V uses an enhanced visual engine complete with abundant particle effects, interactive stage elements, and subtle real-time battle-wear on each character’s clothes. The “3D-inking” technique from Street Fighter IV is still present, though not as defined as previous installments.

Street Fighter V is currently in-development for PS4 and PC; Capcom has no plans to release the Fighter for other platforms, nor has a release window been scheduled. Confirmed characters include Ryu and Chun-Li from the debut gameplay, along with the return of Charlie from the Street Fighter Alpha saga.
