Street Fighter 5 Splash

With the release of their new game, Street Fighter 5, just around the corner, Capcom has released the Full Length CG Trailer for the game.  The title releases next week, February 16, on both the PS4 and the PC.  The console exclusivity has been considered a fairly major move by Sony in the ongoing console wars, and certainly among the fighting game community, this is a game that has a lot of anticipation riding with it.  The title has already been locked in as an Evo 2016 entrant, and very quickly you will start to see some tournaments for the game popping up.  Without further ado, here is the CG trailer for the game.

Additionally, Capcom released a new Character Introduction trailer.  This time for the Street Fighter Alpha series classic character, Charlie Nash.  While in the Alpha series he played a bit similar to his good friend Guile, that seems to have changed quite a bit in the future timeline.  He was supposedly killed by M. Bison (or better known as Dictator, so you don’t get confused by name conversion with translation) which set off Guile’s quest for revenge.  While it appears that Nash is indeed still alive, he did not make it out unscarred.  Not only does he have a bit of Frankenstein’s Monster appearance, his moves have also got a much darker aspect to them.  How he escaped, and who’s side he’s on, we’ll have to wait for the upcoming announced free story content.  But these Character Introduction trailers do a good job of introducing the players to some basic and some intermediate techniques used to succeed with the character.

About William Haderlie

Born in the 1970's, I've been an avid participant for much of video game history. A lifetime of being the sort of supergeek entrenched in the sciences and mathematics has not curbed my appreciation for the artistry of video games, cinema, and especially literature.

    Man, I wish I was still into fighting games.

      I’m still very into them, but sadly I get the most fun these days out of watching the tournaments, especially Evo. The struggle is real to keep up the reflexes at 40.

      Funny enuff, the next day after my comment I pre-ordered the new mad katz controller pad (i have some Capcom fighters on my PS3) and didn’t stop there and also grabbed SF5 collector’s edition lol. I guess all the hype got to me. In regards to fighting games, i luv them still but the will to play them is very dim unless it’s a Virtua Fighter game. Hopefully, this game can light a lil fire under me again. I’m gutted no Sagat…..at least for now.
