Street Figther is one of the most played fighting games of all time. Now on its 5th iteration, Street Fighter 5 brings new fighters to the table as well as new game modes and mechanics.
One of the new mechanics is the new gauge called the “V-Gauge”. You can fill up the V-Gauge when the player receives damage. After V-Gauge has been filled up to a considerable amount, you can now perform either V-Skills, V-Reversals, and V-Triggers. Each of these are unique to each fighter.
Another new addition is the stun meter. In previous Street Fighter games, you just have to hit the enemy in succession to be able to stun them. But in Street Fighter 5, there is now a stun meter located at the bottom of the health gauge. When the stun meter fills up, the enemy or player will be stunned for a few seconds.
When the Street Fighter will be launched, there will be a total of 16 playable characters and other characters will be added via DLC content. The characters that are confirmed so far are:
- Rainbow Mika
- Karin Kanzuki
- Laura Matsuda
Capcom made beta testing possible during the last few weeks. Some fans of the game took the time to look at the game files, and they’ve found out that there are possible characters that will join the tournament in future time. Here are just some of the unconfirmed characters that might be included in the roster when the game launches:
Street Fighter V is a side-scrolling fighting game and players are transported into different stages, set in different locations around the world. There are currently 11 stages that are confirmed to be available when the game launches. These stages are:
- Apprentice Alley
- Bustling Side Street
- City in Chaos
- Forgotten Waterfall
- Hillside Plaza
- Kanzuki Estate
- The Grid
- Underground Arena
- Union Station
Street Fighter V is also powered by Unreal Engine 4, which provides stunning visuals and details unlike the previous installments.
The game will be released for the Playstation 4 and PC platforms. One thing to note is that the game will have cross-platform capabilities, which is a really great thing! Whether you are playing the Playstation 4 version, and your friend is playing the PC version, you guys can challenge each other because of this new scheme!
This cross-platform mechanic is made possible through the joint venture of Sony Entertainment Inc. and Capcom.
Street Fighter V is one of the most highly anticipated games in 2016. Street Fighter has become a household name when it comes to Fighting games, and with an increasing roster and new game mechanics added, I can’t wait to see what the future has in store for this game.
Street Fighter V will be released on February 2016 for the Playstation 4 and PC.
