SFVAExEVO SFII tribute

Hello World Warriors!

We’re getting closer to Evolution Championship Series , the biggest fighting game tournament of the year on the Capcom Pro Tour . Thousands of Street Fighter competitors will gather at Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino again to determine who will win the coveted title of Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition EVO world champion.

Capcom and EVO are happy to announce a new promotion for an exclusive Street Fighter II tribute t-shirt that will boost the EVO prize pool!

SFVAExEVO SFII tribute preview

Starting now until July 20, all EVO registered attendees - competitors and spectators - will have a new option on the smash.gg registration page to purchase the exclusive Street Fighter II tribute shirt by artist Dave Wilkins for $10. This one-of-a-kind shirt is inspired by the iconic Super Nintendo box art of Street Fighter II, but reimagined with Blanka-chan, Battle Costume Chun-Li, and Hot Ryu from Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition.

100% of the revenue generated from the shirt will go to boost the prize pool for Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition at EVO 2018. The expanded prize pool will be distributed towards the lower end of the brackets - from 9th place to 32nd place – meaning more people will be rewarded!

Furthermore, once we reach 1,000 shirts sold ($10,000 additional prize pool), then Capcom will provide a free shirt to every entrant in Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition . It will take the full effort of the community to reach this goal and make the shirt available to EVO Street Fighter competitors.

These shirts can then be picked up on-site at EVO 2018 in Las Vegas, Nevada. You must show up for your pools to receive this shirt. Please note, registrants who purchased a shirt and contributed to the 1,000 shirt goal will not receive a second shirt.

We’re very excited to add more support for the Street Fighter community at EVO and are looking forward to the extraordinary competition the event has become known for.

Remember, registration for EVO closes on July 20. You can find more information about EVO and sign up at evo.shoryuken.com/registration .

Get Ready to Slay with Devil May Cry Costumes for Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition - Air Man Costume Incoming!

After the announcement of Devil May Cry 5 at E3 2018, it’s time to bring the party to Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition with three different Devil May Cry costumes for Ken, Ed, and Laura!

Dante Costume (Ken) – Dante is the main protagonist of the Devil May Cry series, who serves as a private investigator and Devil Hunter at his very own shop. Throughout the series, he meets mysterious allies while hacking and slashing through formidable foes – all while being stylish, of course. This particular costume is inspired by Dante’s outfit in Devil May Cry 4, which was released in 2008, and includes his trademark sword Rebellion on Ken’s back.

Using the alternate code will equip Ken with Gilgamesh, a set of armor that includes gauntlets, greaves, a mask, and back armor. In Devil May Cry 4, Gilgamesh focused on slow, but potent attacks.

Nero Costume (Ed) – Nero first appeared as the main protagonist in Devil May Cry 4. He is a Holy Knight in the Order of the Sword, which serves to fight demons and protect the world. Unlike Dante’s carefree attitude, Nero is distant and cynical.  Nero acquires the Yamato, a blade that belonged to Dante’s brother Vergil, which then manifests itself as a spectral demon floating behind Nero. This is reflected in Ed’s costume!

Ed takes off Nero’s jacket when using the alternate code to reveal his whole Devil Bringer arm, which can pull in enemies to himself and vice versa – perfectly matched for Ed’s V-Skill!

Both the Dante and Nero costumes will be available for purchase for MSRP $3.99 each on PlayStation and Steam the same day Cody arrives on June 25. This brings us to the Gloria costume, which can be obtained in Extra Battle Mode.

Gloria Costume (Laura) – Appearing in Devil May Cry 4, Gloria is an executive in the Order of the Sword. Her true identity is Trish, Dante’s work partner, from previous games in the series who possesses supernatural abilities of her own. Trish/Gloria is able to use the element of electricity in various ways to aid in combat or even teleport. As an electricity user herself, Laura is the perfect character to wear the Gloria costume. Using the alternate code will replace Gloria’s hair with Laura’s hair.

HOW DOES EXTRA BATTLE MODE WORK?

Every month, there will be at least one unique costume like a Crossover Costume up for grabs, which can only be obtained by playing Extra Battle Mode with Fight Money. Here’s the flow of how to go about getting these costumes:

  • Each costume requires you to complete four challenges that take place over the span of a month – one challenge per week.
  • Each time you attempt one of these challenges, you will need to spend 2,500 Fight Money. So if you successfully complete each of the weekly challenges in one go, you can get that Extra Battle Costume for 10,000 FM!
  • Once you complete all four challenges, the costume for that month is yours!
  • These challenges are time exclusive, so make sure to log in each week to complete them, especially if you have your eyes on that month’s unique costume.

Air Man Costume (Rashid) -
Anxious for the next Crossover Costume after Gloria? With Mega Man 11 sliding on to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC on October 2, we wanted to pay homage to the series by turning our very own master of wind into Air Man, a Robot Master who made his debut in Mega Man 2. If you can’t wait to defeat Air Man, pick up Mega Man Legacy Collection, out now on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC!

What a way to bring three different Capcom series together! Get ready to rock with Devil May Cry costumes and the Air Man costume in Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition!

Survival Mode Improvements and the New Fighting Chance Mode Debut in Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition on June 25!

Cody has heard the calls of the citizens and has decided to start his job as mayor one day early on June 25! Also coming with Metro City’s New Mayor are improvements to Survival Mode and introducing the Fighting Chance mode, including new obtainable skins! Learn more about these features below and how they work.

CURRENT SURVIVAL MODE

As you likely know, Survival Mode is a single-player mode where you’re challenged to fight a consecutive number of CPU opponents until you either beat them all or are defeated – if you fail, you must start from the very beginning. There are four separate difficulty settings with different rewards:

  • Easy
    • 10 consecutive opponents
    • Unlocks Color 3 for Default, Story, and Extra Battle Costumes
    • EXP awarded for the first time completed with each character
  • Normal
    • 30 consecutive opponents
    • Unlocks Colors 4, 5, and 6 for Default, Story, and Extra Battle Costumes
    • EXP awarded for the first time completed with each character
  • Hard
    • 50 consecutive opponents
    • Unlocks Colors 7, 8, 9, and 10 for Default, Story, and Extra Battle Costumes
    • EXP awarded for the first time completed with each character
  • Extreme
    • 100 consecutive opponents
    • Unlocks a title
    • EXP awarded for the first time completed with each character

As you progress in each attempt, you’ll rack up score depending on how quickly you defeat the opponent. In between rounds, you have the option of spending some of your score to purchase a Battle Supplement, which will help you against the next opponent in various ways.

But this much you may already know, so what are these improvements we speak of? There are quite a few, so let’s start with the addition of Battle Goods!

BATTLE GOODS

Similar to Battle Supplements, Battle Goods can be used to give you advantages or improve your chances of winning the next round. Unlike Battle Supplements, Battle Goods are consumables, meaning they will disappear once you use them. You can also use up to five of them between rounds whereas you can only use one Battle Supplement.

Once this update goes live, you’ll automatically receive some Battle Goods in your inventory to get you started. You can obtain more Battle Goods by completing Survival Mode – the higher the difficulty, the more rewards – or by participating in the new Fighting Chance mode, which will be discussed below.

CARE TO CONTINUE OR SAVE YOUR PROGRESS?

Currently, once you are defeated in Survival Mode, you must start from the very beginning. With this update, you can now spend Fight Money to continue after a loss. If you are defeated, you can spend 800 Fight Money to continue without losing progress. When continuing, you will start with a full health bar, EX Gauge, and V-Gauge to make the match fair.

100 consecutive matches can take a while! That’s why we’re adding the ability to save your progress so you can resume at a later date. After clearing a stage, you’ll have the option to open the Save Menu at the Battle Supplements screen. Upon doing so, you’ll be prompted with the ability to Save and Quit. Once you decide you’re ready to continue, you can head to Survival Mode again where a prompt will ask if you’d like to resume play.

OTHER IMPROVEMENTS

When playing Survival Mode, you can now select Standard or Random, which will affect the CPU opponents. In Standard, only the initial 16 characters will appear in a predetermined order. In Random, all currently-released characters, including those from Season 1-3, will appear in random order – except for the “boss” character that appears every 10 stages.

Finally, any unused V-Gauge will also be carried over into the next stage giving you more options as you take on the increased CPU difficulty..

INTRODUCING FIGHTING CHANCE

Battle Goods are potent items that can greatly increase your chance of completing Survival Mode, especially with the increased difficulty. This brings us to Fighting Chance, a new system where Menat will open up shop to tell your fortune! By spending 500 Fight Money, you can obtain a Fantasy Fortune Reading, which Menat can help you decipher. These readings contain multiple items, including some exclusive to Fighting Chance.

  • Battle Goods for Survival Mode
  • New colors only obtainable in Fantasy Fortune Readings
  • Rare costumes only available via Fantasy Fortune Readings
    • Cammy’s Cannon Spike costume below is one of these rare costumes
    • We’ll introduce more rare costumes as time goes on!
  • Classic pieces of Street Fighter art from across the series

Upon logging in once the update is live, you’ll receive one free Fantasy Fortune Reading that will walk you through this process!

We hope you check out the new and improved Survival Mode and Fighting Chance along with meeting Mayor Cody Travers! Word on the street is that there are more fashionable additions coming with this update, so follow us on Twitter and like us on Facebook to stay up to date on all the latest news!

Become a Valiant Knight with the Arthur Crossover Costume for Ryu in Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition!

Good always conquers evil, right? While the last piece of the Astaroth Crossover Costume for M. Bison is underway, the Arthur Crossover Costume for Ryu will come dashing in to show the villain what it means to be a hero! The Arthur Crossover Costume challenges in Extra Battle Mode will begin on June 7.


HOW DOES EXTRA BATTLE MODE WORK?

Every month, there will be at least one unique costume like a Crossover Costume up for grabs, which can only be obtained by playing Extra Battle Mode with Fight Money. Here’s the flow of how to go about getting these costumes:

  • Each costume requires you to complete four challenges that take place over the span of a month – one challenge per week.
  • Each time you attempt one of these challenges, you will need to spend 2,500 Fight Money. So if you successfully complete each of the weekly challenges in one go, you can get that Extra Battle Costume for 10,000 FM!
  • Once you complete all four challenges, the costume for that month is yours!
  • These challenges are time exclusive, so make sure to log in each week to complete them, especially if you have your eyes on that month’s unique costume.

 

Appearing in Ghosts ‘n Goblins (1985) and its sequels, Arthur is the main protagonist who is on a mission to rescue the princess Guinevere from countless villains like Astaroth. Utilizing an arsenal of knightly weapons including a lance, dagger, axe, sword, crossbow, and more, Arthur is able to fend off armies of undead in the name of the princess. One of the most notable things about Arthur is the fact he loses his armor when hit, reducing his clothing to only boxer shorts. As both Ryu is the protagonist of Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition and has a penchant for being good, he’s the perfect character to don Arthur’s armor. In case you’re worried, you can definitely get the armor-less version of this costume using the alternate code.

Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection is Now Available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Steam!

Relive the last three decades of Street Fighter with Street Fighter 30 th Anniversary Collection, now available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Steam!

Street Fighter 30 th Anniversary Collection contains 12 classic titles that impacted arcade culture, established the fighting game genre, and paved way for our very own Capcom Pro Tour. This is the first time many of these arcade titles will be playable on consoles and PC. While the collection stays true to the arcade experience, four of the titles will also contain additional features such as online play, Training Mode, and Versus Mode!

  • Street Fighter
  • Street Fighter II
  • Street Fighter II: Champion Edition
  • Street Fighter II: Hyper Fighting - Online and Training Mode
  • Super Street Fighter II
  • Super Street Fighter II Turbo - Online and Training Mode
  • Street Fighter Alpha
  • Street Fighter Alpha 2
  • Street Fighter Alpha 3 - Online and Training Mode
  • Street Fighter III
  • Street Fighter III: 2nd Impact
  • Street Fighter III: Third Strike – Online and Training Mode

 

OFFLINE MODES

Arcade Mode – In this classic mode heralding back to the arcades, take on a series of CPU opponents until you’re treated to each character’s unique ending. This time, no coins are needed and continues are infinite. In Street Fighter 30 th Anniversary Collection, you can now save your progress in Arcade Mode and continue later on!

Versus Mode – In order to play against another player in the arcades, they would have to interrupt your progress through Arcade Mode by inserting coins. Now, you can directly play against someone else in local Versus Mode, complete with the ability to select your stage!

Training Mode – Available in Street Fighter II: Hyper Fighting, Super Street Fighter II Turbo, Street Fighter Alpha 3, and Street Fighter III: Third Strike, a robust Training Mode has been implemented to help you practice combos and master your character before taking the battle online. All four titles will have the option to turn on damage display, input display, dummy controls, and more! You’ll even be able to use the record and play function, similarly to Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition, where you can record what the dummy will do, then play it back. Each of the four games also have their own unique training options that reflect their respective systems.

ONLINE MODES

Online Arcade – Unlike offline Arcade Mode, Online Arcade Mode is all about recreating the classic experience of having a player interrupt your progress to challenge you by inserting coins. While you fight the CPU opponents, the system will be looking for online matches for you. Once one is found, your progress will be interrupted and you’ll fight another player!

Ranked Match – Care to show the world you were the champion of your local arcade? Prove it by playing ranked matches to improve your spot on the leaderboards, which can also be viewed in the online category.

Casual Match – If you’re looking to play against another player without the pressure of leaderboards or if you simply want to practice a new character, casual matches are for you! The outcome of casual matches do not reflect your position on the leaderboards.

Lobbies – Up to four players can be in one lobby at a time. When creating one, you can choose which of the four games you’d like to be available to play. If you only want to partake in Street Fighter III: Third Strike games, make sure to uncheck the other three. If more than one game is checked, players will vote for the game they’d like to play the most. When in a lobby, you can also spectate to see all the action as it goes down!

Super Street Fighter II: The Tournament Battle (Nintendo Switch) – In this platform exclusive recreation, four Nintendo Switch systems and eight controllers take part in local wireless play where up to eight players partake in a tournament of their own, complete with brackets and a crowned champion. This mode is perfect for group gatherings – and bragging rights, of course. Check out how it works in our blog here.

MUSEUM

History – Journey through this interactive timeline to learn about key dates and uncover concept art related to each game in the series.

Characters – Learn more about the world-famous characters in the Street Fighter series, including their background, likes, dislikes, and even blood type. You can also look at frame-by-frame character sprites in each of their appearances!

Music – Street Fighter is known for some unforgettable themes that have stood the test of time – some even becoming internet memes. Choose which of the 12 games you’d like to listen to the sound track of, turn up the volume, and relax as the notes of nostalgia flow through your ears.

Street Fighter 30 th Anniversary Collection is a celebration of how far the series has come in a monumental 30 years. Celebrate with us now on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Steam!

Cody, Metro City's New Mayor, punches his way in to Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition on June 26!

Cody Travers has served his time behind bars, but has now become the new mayor of Metro City. Although quite busy with his everyday duties, he will arrive in Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition on June 26!

MEET THE MAYOR EARLY AND FOR FREE

We’re celebrating the return of Cody by hosting a free trial for two days, starting on June 25 at around 5pm PT, where all players can meet the mayor for free. The free trial will end on June 27 at 5pm PT, so make sure to clear up some room on your calendar.

During this time, you'll be able to play Cody in Ranked and Casual Matches, Battle Lounges, Demonstrations, Trials, and Training Mode. Other modes like Arcade and Story will not be playable with the mayor. 

Important Notice: Any EXP and Fight Money you earn with Cody during this time will disappear on when the free trial ends. However, if you purchase Cody any time afterwards, the earned EXP and Fight Money will automatically be credited towards your account. If you purchase the Season 3 Character Pass during this free period, the EXP and Fight Money will not disappear. Cody will be purchasable individually during the free trial.

Hailing from the beat-em-up series Final Fight – where Zeku’s pupil Guy was also introduced - Cody first appeared in the Street Fighter series in Street Fighter Alpha 3. Unable to adapt to the peace, Cody was repeatedly thrown into prison – or returned voluntarily – after causing havoc in the streets by fighting through any conflict he could find. He casually broke out of prison in Super Street Fighter IV to search for a cure for his boredom, but ultimately returned by his own free will. In Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition, Mike Haggar exonerates Cody of his crimes, which leads to him being the new mayor of Metro City. Though he constantly complains, Cody secretly finds a glimmer of joy in his new position. However, this doesn’t ultimately stop him from solving problems with his bare hands, knives, or pipes…

Cody’s move set in Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition resembles that of his previous appearances, but altered to fit his new spiffy style. When not in V-Trigger, Cody can no longer throw rocks as a projectile or unleash a Criminal Upper like before. Instead, Cody now has Tornado Sweep, which sees him shooting a swirling gust of wind like a traditional fireball. Cody still has Ruffian Kick and Zonk Knuckle as special moves. In addition, he now has a few target combos.

V-Skill – Double Kick

A move from Final Fight, Cody quickly jumps straight up and performs two kicks in the air to both sides. Double Kick can be used as an effective anti-air and in certain situations, it can also end a combo.

V-Trigger I – Sidearm

In this two-block V-Trigger, Cody pulls out his signature knife. Sidearm increases the range on Cody’s normal punches, which also become safer on block while he’s holding the knife. He can also throw the knife by pressing HP+HK again straight at the opponent or at an upwards angle as an anti-air. After throwing the knife, Cody can then pull out his knife again by pressing HP+HK while V-Trigger I is active.

Cody also gains the Rapid Fire special move, which sees him slashing multiple times and is a great combo ender. Even if V-Trigger I’s duration ends, if Cody is still holding the knife, he’ll continue holding on to it until he either throws it or hits the opponent.

V-Trigger II – Dirty Coach

In this two-block V-Trigger, Cody is armed with his trusty pipe. With the pipe in hand, the range on Cody’s HPs are drastically increased. He also channels his inner baseball player and gains Gentle Swing by pressing HP+HK again or Gentle Upper Swing, the anti-air version.

If you’re wondering where Cody’s rocks went, they’re implemented into this V-Trigger! During V-Trigger II, Cody can use Bean Ball, which sees him tossing a rock in front of him. Though the rock has a hitbox if tossed on its own, Cody can follow up by hitting it with Gentle Swing with varying results. Depending on the timing, the rock will either hit the opponent from the air at a slight arc, smash straight into the opponent for multiple hits, or roll towards the opponent’s feet. Furthermore, if Cody follows up with Gentle Upper Swing, the rock will go flying off screen and eventually land a set distance depending on the punch button that was used.

Though Cody does lose access to Tornado Sweep with the pipe in hand, he does gain the ability to cancel some of his special moves into Gentle Swing. Much like the knife, Cody will hold on to the pipe after V-Trigger II ends until he hits the opponent with it or if the opponent blocks the hit.

Critical Art – Criminal Punisher

Cody harnesses his past behind bars and unleashes a devastating tornado reminiscent of Criminal Upper from previous games.

Cody will be available individually for MSRP $5.99 or 100,000 Fight Money OR as part of the Season 3 Character Pass for MSRP $29.99, which unlocks Sakura, Blanka, Falke, Cody, G, and Sagat as they become available. If you purchase Cody as part of the Season 3 Character Pass or with real money, you will also get his Battle Costume with colors 3-10 and default costume colors 3-10.

Take a look at Cody’s Story Costume, which pays homage to the previous mayor of Metro City.

Cody might wear this dashing Battle Costume during the many events he must attend as a mayor.

Get a reminder of Cody’s jailbird past with his Nostalgia Costume that can be altered with the special code to reveal a tank top underneath and the sleeves of his prison outfit tied at his waist.

Go further back into the past for Cody’s first appearance in Final Fight with this simple costume that can also be altered with the special code to reflect the aftermath of a street fight.

Cody will be available on June 26, but will be playable at E3 2018 at Capcom’s booth (South Hall, #2223), so stop on by to play the ex-convict! We’ll be over halfway done with Season 3, so make sure to follow us on Twitter and like us on Facebook to stay up to date on all things Street Fighter !

Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection Training and Versus Mode Details!

Street Fighter 30 th Anniversary Collection is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Steam on May 29, 2018! We’re here to officially announce that Training and Versus Mode will be making their way to this collection, and to go over how each of them will work.

Street Fighter 30 th Anniversary Collection contains 12 iconic titles that have each added to the legendary fighting game series.

  • Street Fighter
  • Street Fighter II
  • Street Fighter II: Champion Edition
  • Street Fighter II: Hyper Fighting
  • Super Street Fighter II
  • Super Street Fighter II Turbo
  • Street Fighter Alpha
  • Street Fighter Alpha 2
  • Street Fighter Alpha 3
  • Street Fighter III
  • Street Fighter III: 2nd Impact
  • Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike

VERSUS MODE

Having a dedicated Versus Mode where you can choose your characters and stage is a mainstay for modern fighting games on console. That’s why all 12 of these games will have a local Versus Mode where two players can duke it out against each other! Upon selecting which game you’d like to play Versus in, you’ll then be given a choice of which stage to play on. To add some extra flavor, each of these stages is labeled with which character originated from it. For example, in Street Fighter Alpha 3, the House of Mystery – Palazzo Mistero, Italy is labeled as Rose’s stage.

After each match, you’ll have the option to rematch, as well. If you choose to not have a rematch, you’ll be taken back to the main Versus screen where you can choose which of the 12 games to play. Invite your friends over to see who can really go home with the bragging rights!

TRAINING MODE

As previously announced, Street Fighter II: Hyper Fighting, Super Street Fighter II: Turbo, Street Fighter Alpha 3, and Street Fighter III: 3 rd Strike will all have online play! We’re happy to announce that all four of these iconic titles will also feature robust Training Modes, where you can practice combos, set ups, and master your character of choice in order to hone your skills for countless online battles. There are numerous training options available that weren’t in the arcade versions of these games that will enable you to customize your experience and train more efficiently than ever before! Some of the options that are universal amongst all four games are the ability to turn on damage display, input display, dummy controls, and more!

These aren’t even all the options available! Each of the four games also has its own additional training options that work within the gameplay mechanics introduced in the respective series.

After the initial announcement, we saw lots of fan feedback hoping for Versus and Training Modes, even if the collection is focused on the arcade versions. It’s because of this feedback that these modes have been added to the game. Since this is a brand new feature, Versus and Training Mode will be available as a day one patch on May 29. You must connect to the internet and download the patch in order to enable them.

We hope Training Mode will allow you to brush up on your fighting prowess before heading online to take on the world!

Become a Demon Lord with the Astaroth Crossover Costume for M. Bison in Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition!

So far, we’ve only seen heroes and “good guys” as inspiration for Crossover Costumes, but that time is over! Evil will show its face(s) when the Astaroth Crossover Costume for M. Bison begins on May 10!

HOW DOES EXTRA BATTLE MODE WORK?

Every month, there will be at least one unique costume like a Crossover Costume up for grabs, which can only be obtained by playing Extra Battle Mode with Fight Money. Here’s the flow of how to go about getting these costumes:

  • Each costume requires you to complete four challenges that take place over the span of a month – one challenge per week.
  • Each time you attempt one of these challenges, you will need to spend 2,500 Fight Money. So if you successfully complete each of the weekly challenges in one go, you can get that Extra Battle Costume for 10,000 FM!
  • Once you complete all four challenges, the costume for that month is yours!
  • These challenges are time exclusive, so make sure to log in each week to complete them, especially if you have your eyes on that month’s unique costume.

Appearing in Ghosts ‘n Goblins (1985) and its sequels, Astaroth is the main antagonist to the chivalrous knight, Arthur. He is a demon lord and the ruler of the Demon Realm Village, which is a world inhabited by evil creatures. Astaroth has two faces, the primary one on his head and a secondary one on his abdomen. He can breathe fire through both of his faces to scorch enemies to a crisp. He’s also a master illusionist and can create mirages such as creating clones of himself. With clones and evil in mind, M. Bison is undoubtedly the best character to don the Astaroth Crossover Costume!
