You’ll Be Able to Buy Future Street Fighter V Fighters & Content Without Purchasing a New Disc
Interviewed by Eventhubs, Matt Dahlgren, Director of Brand Marketing & eSports at Capcom, confirmed that you won’t have to buy another disc to access all of the Street Fighter V post-launch content:
We have paid attention to the way that we’ve managed things with Street Fighter IV, and we will be mixing things up this time around.
This is the only disc you’re ever going to need to own to get all of the content in the game, but we’ll be revealing details of how our post-launch content happens at a later date, but it will be good news.
Capcom plans on supporting Street Fighter for “many years to come,” and they’re expecting Street Fighter V to be the dominant fighting game this generation, “so we are thinking long term,” he added.
Although they aren’t revealing the total roster count of fighters yet, Dahlgren said they are putting a “strong focus on making sure that every character put into the game is very unique and has their own individuality.” Capcom wants to start off with a core roster that’s inviting to new players, as a gigantic roster of fighters “can be pretty daunting for new players to figure out where to start.”
Touching upon a couple other questions, Dahlgren said, “Very soon in the future, you will see brand new characters for the franchise.” As well, he confirmed that every character won’t get their own stage, but they will have new stages from all over the globe.
Street Fighter V launches in Spring 2016 for the PlayStation 4 and PC.
