Street Fighter V's Story Might Surprise A Whole Lot Of People

Yeah, I know. When you put "story" and "fighting game" in the same sentence, people laugh.

And despite the promise, you probably rolled your eyes a little when you learned about the "free, expanded story mode" that will be coming to Street Fighter V in June.

But wait. Don't be surprised if this storyline is surprisingly involving and entertaining. Producer Yoshinori Ono tells VentureBeat that this full narrative experience is in response to fans wishing for a better narrative. So, Ono says they "talked about this in earnest on the R&D side" and they ended up putting a ton of effort into the concept. He said the story was designed to bridge the gap between SFIV and SFIII and it wasn't an easy task...in fact, Ono claims it was "probably a bit more difficult than 'Star Wars.'" He added:

"There have been people who've been disappointed with the way our story content has been handled in the past. This time we can say very firmly that no one will be disappointed with this level of story.

When they see this they'll realize, 'Wow, Street Fighter is a real contender. This is an amazing brand with an amazing story.'"

Will we get a shockingly good narrative in Street Fighter V? Cross your fingers! The game is scheduled to launch on February 16 for PlayStation 4 and PC, and don't forget to check out the newly released game mode trailer.

I'm not holding my breath. I am excited to challenge other players and have a good time.

Additionally, I have a hard time accepting that "tutorial" is a mode but whatever.

I don't think there's much of a chance for a shockingly good narrative but something better than the SF norm would be welcomed. The old fashioned anime intros no longer fit and felt out of place in SF4. Mortal Kombat is the one to beat in this department.

Personally, this stuff is just short lived fluff to me in the long run. I play fighters for the competition and having a great fight. Win or lose.

MK and injustice had great story modes. SF has no excuses for a cheap add on

Just nail the gameplay. Nobody in their right mind buys a fighting game for the story mode, so whether that delivers in SF V or not, it really doesn't matter.

Yep, real evolving gameplay please. I love a good fighting story but that takes huge precedence in SF.
