While at the largest fighting game tournament, Evolution, in Las Vegas, Capcom took the time to show off a brand new trailer showing the first of four all new characters added to Street Fighter V. Necalli joins the 16 character roster and Capcom also announces that the game will be just one standalone game with additional updates, characters and extras to be added for free or earned by playing the game. You are able to pay for the additional content but it is not forced.
Capcom also confirmed the details of the content plan for Street Fighter V. The initial game purchase will be the only disc or full game download you will ever need to own. For the first time ever, all post-launch gameplay related content will be earnable via gameplay, totally free of charge. Players will also have the option to purchase the content as soon as it’s available if they wish to do so. Any balance and system adjustments will be available for free also. Releasing in Spring 2016, the title will launch with a core roster of 16 characters, including 4 brand new fighters to the Street Fighter universe. Capcom will continually add additional characters, making this the first iteration in the franchise where it’s possible for dedicated players to continue to expand on their gameplay experience without the need to purchase further titles in the series.
