Capcom Considering Street Fighter 5 Despite Not Announcing It At E3

By   /   Jun 11, 2014

While Capcom didn’t announce any upcoming fighting game at E3 this year, if rumors from Sponichi Annex are to be believed, the company is all set to create Street Fighter 5.

Capcom president and COO Haruhiro Tsujimoto talked to some reporters at E3 regarding the company’s plans about Street Fighter 5 which would not only include all the unique features of the franchise but also broaden the player base by making it more rewarding for newcomers.

In almost every fighting game, skilled players can beat unskilled ones almost instantly and that is what Capcom is looking to change. To implement this change, the company is considering a pay-for-advantage system.

This system might grant new players increased damage, easier combo options or less damage intake while blocking.

Capcom is also considering a spectate feature within game to allow users to watch skilled players in action and learn some strategies.

According to Sponichi Annex, Street Fighter 5 is still years away from release, but Capcom is looking to put it out on the PS4 and Xbox One, at least as far as home video game consoles are concerned. But that shouldn’t really be a surprise since by that time the old generation of consoles will be obsolete.

Are you excited by the prospect of a new ‘numbered’ Street Fighter game?
