New Content and Characters For Street Fighter V Announced

Street Fighter V “A Shadow Falls” and Two New Characters Release Tomorrow

Tomorrow, Capcom will release a major new update for Street Fighter V. The update
will include 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. 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.“A Shadow Falls”

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.
The epic battle between good and evil begins soon… who will RISE UP?

Street Fighter history, first appearing as a boss character in Street Fighter
II. He’s always been one of the most vicious characters to ever appear in the
series, using his devastating boxing style and questionable tactics to do
whatever it takes to win a fight. Balrog’s playstyle in Street Fighter V puts the
focus on his powerful punches, and with the use of his V-Trigger, he can chain
these attacks together to deal some serious damage.Ibuki

Also being added to the SFV roster, Ibuki is a very tricky, technical character
with loads of new ninjutsu tricks up her sleeve. Ibuki is a mobile character with
various target combos, but now she has even more ways to mix-up the opponent with
the ability to glide through the air and toss out ninja bombs, making it very
difficult to predict where she will land and where her next attack will come
