Street Fighter V Makes Casuals Feel Alienated: Red Bull
Street Fighter V released recently on PlayStation 4 and PC. Capcom did a decent job but it wasn’t good enough to satisfy many who feel there is no story content and it has minimal single-player support. They aren’t wrong but according to Red Bull Street Fighter V is mainly focused on competitive matches and players.
The company went on to say that some complain because Street Fighter V makes “casuals feel alienated,” for the time being. During an interview Matt Dahlgren said that not everything makes it to the final game and although they did announce richer story content, it would be added in the coming months.
As with any form of entertainment, creators will nearly always wish there was more content, but there are a lot of factors in play when it comes to what makes it into the final cut. The good news for Street Fighter V is our final cut isn’t final and development has not stopped, and the service will continue to improve over time.
He went on to say:
We certainly understand if those features had been place at launch, the content offering would have been stronger for new players. The additional content is coming soon, so we appreciate everyone’s patience as these updates will definitely help casual fans dive further into the world of Street Fighter V.
Meanwhile, there is lots of stuff planned for competitive players including competitive events. Street Fighter V, for now, is primarily targeted towards hardcore and competitive players.
“Casuals” need to be patient for more content to arrive.
