After Street Fighter V leaked early and then it’s proper reveal at the PlayStation Experience a couple weeks back, Capcom took the stage at their own event this past weekend called CapcomCup, which also marks the final stop of the Capcom Pro Tour circuit. Sixteen players fought it out in Ultra Street Fighter IV over a prize pool of $50,000.
The big news for attendees however was getting more Street Fighter V details straight from Capcom. While the gameplay trailer remained what we had seens before featuring a fight between series veterans, Chun-Li and Ryu, the big tease came at the end showing off Street Fighter Alpha fighter and Guile’s buddy, Charlie.
Outside of the character tease, Capcom also announced a partnership with Sony to brnig CapcomCup back next year also featuring a prize pool of half a million dollars. I’ll let that sink in for a moment. Might be time to brush up on your combos again before next year, eh?
Capcom also showed off Street Fighter V in a live stage demo so if you want to see the game played in real time rather than through an edited trailer, click here. Street Fighter V is due out sometime next year for PC and PlayStation 4 systems.
