The news of a new Street Fighter title was quite interesting, but hearing about it being exclusive was a downer. So far Sony has one exclusive of Guilty Gear X 3rd and now Street Fighter V…for now. I have to agree with my comrade Unlovedhomie who brought up an interesting thought that I would have to agree with. This title will be exclusive, but who is to say this will happen for Super Street Fighter V, Super Street Fighter V AE or Ultra Street Fighter V. Don’t act like you don’t know how Capcom works when I named those titles, you know darn well it will be something similar to that.
“Throughout all of our discussions with Sony Computer Entertainment, it is clear that we share a mutual belief that the fighting genre has a huge opportunity for growth,” said Matt Dahlgren, Capcom’s Associate Director of Brand Marketing and eSports. “The announcement today is just the first step, of many, in creating the next generation Street Fighter experience our fans have been asking for.”
“Partnering with Capcom to deliver one of the most popular video game franchises of all time as a console exclusive to our PlayStation family is a huge undertaking and an honor we take incredibly seriously,” said Adam Boyes, VP of Publisher & Developer Relations at Sony Computer Entertainment America. “We can’t wait to show Street Fighter and PlayStation fans what we have in store for them.”
I honestly do not think this will last that long and frankly speaking we know how Capcom roles with their fighting titles. We should expect expansions galore when this finally releases, but hopefully you Xbox One players won’t have to wait too long. If you want to check out the first gameplay demonstration tune in on December 13th @ twitch.tv/capcomfighters. In that please feel free to share your thoughts on this exclusive deal? Do you believe it will last and are you going to be the first to pick up Street Fighter V or wait a bit? Stay frosty gamers!
