Street Fighter 5 Will Surprise Players, Says Capcom

Capcom boss and Street Fighter producer Yoshinori Ono believes Street Fighter V will serve up an unexpected experience for players when it launches for PC and PlayStation 4 in 2016.

"We’ve been working on Street Fighter V for the past seven years now. There’s been a lot of rebalancing and so on, but the game is still going strong, even today," Ono told Edge in a recent interview.

"All this means that, with Street Fighter V, we have a fantastic opportunity to create something with a larger scope, a game that encompasses all that Street Fighter has become in the last few years, but which also expands on that to become something it has never been before as well. 

"So now we want to create something that nobody is expecting," Ono added. "It’s going to be a title that caters to fans, of course, but one that also invites completely new players onto the scene. Street Fighter IV was about reviving a passion. Street Fighter V is about growing that passion."
