'Street Fighter V' Story Expansion 'A Shadow Falls' Release Date: Here's Everything We Know So Far
Capcom recently provided details about the cinematic story expansion of “Street Fighter V.” Titled, “A Shadow Falls,” the new story mode will feature up to four hours of gameplay and playable DLC characters.
“Street Fighter V” A Shadow Falls will launch at the end of June 2016, and will be available as free DLC for those who own the main game. The story will consist of five chapters and the setting will link the events between the third and fourth installments of the franchise.
The “Street Fighter V” Cinematic Story Expansion will feature the grand battle between the good World Warriors and the evil Shadaloo group. Shadaloo will grant seven black moons, which will provide M. Bison with superpowers and cover the world in darkness. Ryu, Ken and Chun-Li will be the heroes who will go on a quest to stop the black moons in time. During their journey, the three will meet other World Warriors who will also have their respective missions.
Capcom also detailed that all six DLC characters will be fully playable in the “Street Fighter V” expansion, namely Alex, Guile, Ibuki, Balrog, Juri and Urien. The six characters will not officially be available until later in 2016, so gamers can play them ahead in “A Shadow Falls.”
Players can earn Fight Money after finishing the new “Street Fighter V” story mode. The Normal Mode will yield 30,000 Fight Money while the Extra Mode will unlock after completing Normal Mode and yield 50,000 Fight Money.
High-Def Digest noted that the Zenny currency system, which was previously announced will no longer be introduced. Instead, “Street Fighter V” will rely on the PlayStation Store and Steam stores to handle real money transactions. In effect, Fight Money will still be the basic currency that players can acquire for free by playing the game and use to purchase content.
“Street Fighter V” players can purchase new characters for 100,000 Fight Money or $5.99, new stages for 70,000 Fight Money or $3.99, alternate stages and story costumes for 40,000 or $1.99, respectively, and premium costumes for $3.99.
More things to expect from “Street Fighter V” include the sale of premium Battle Costumes for each released character, Story Mode costumes, optimization of the Daily Challenges, which will be called “Targets,” new single player modes and other features.
“Street Fighter V” is currently playable on PlayStation 4 and PC. More updates and details are expected soon.
