Today Capcom that, the soon to be released, Street Fighter V will receive a free, expanded story mode in June. It will contain over an hour of “cinematic content” and fill in the storyline between some previous Street Fighter games and this one. Watch the first trailer for the DLC below.

In a recent interview with executive producer of Street Fighter V, Yoshinori Ono, and GameSpot, Ono expanded story component will differ from the story elements included with the game at launch, as well as some story time-line positions.

“We have two approaches that we’re actually taking. First and foremost, there are the character stories, which are really serving as a prologue in terms of getting people up to speed with what’s happening in Street Fighter V, and it’s very similar to what you see in other Street Fighter titles–it has still screenshots, conversations, and banter between characters.

“This is not going to be typical illustrations; this is going to have in-game models, everything will happen in real time, and it’s also going to have an hour plus of cinematic content. To be very clear: we’re going to give [this story expansion] out for free. So anybody who has purchased the disc and has the game will be getting this content for free via an update coming in June.

“I haven’t talked about this previously, but in terms of where Street Fighter V is placed in the SF universe timeline, it’s placed between Street Fighter IV and Street Fighter III. With Street Fighter V, the concept that we’re trying to accomplish is to wrap everything together–all six titles of Street Fighter together–cohesively.”

Capcom announced that it will also be holding one final beta from January 30 at 12:01 AM PST until January 31, at 19:00 PST. Street Fighter V will be released on February 16th on PlayStation 4 and Steam. Stay Tuned to Gamer Assault Weekly for all your gaming needs.
