Lookie what dropped out of Capcom’s bag of surprises – a trailer for Street Fighter V, an exclusive for Playstation 4 and Windows PC. Making the trailer public on their Youtube channel was a mistake without a doubt. On December 13, Capcom is holding their second annual Capcom Cup, a tournament that features players from around the world who earned a bid to compete for a total prize pool of $50,000. The company also makes announcements for their video game franchises at Capcom Cup, and Street Fighter V was definitely doing to be their big announcement of the night.
The trailer features bits of gameplay, amazing new visuals, and clips from players around the world embracing Street Fighter in various ways such as in music, art, and tournaments.
The fighting game scene is already reacting with loads of hype.
