Am i able to play friends in japan from America in sfv?

I live in america, but a good friend lives in japan and we both like street fighter. Will I be able to play against him or is it only nation wide?

U can play against anyone in the world it doesnt matter where they live. The connection might not b the best tho

At this rate you can’t play someone sitting across the street.

Right now you can’t play anyone.

Lmao that just made my morning. But yeah these guys r correct the game is fucked right now
