The Inevitable Street Fighter V Story Thread: ARCADE EDITION!

Akuma looks like the bastard son of Lysandre the Team Flare leader and Ganondorf.

So I’m convinced the first two silhouettes are Helen and Byron, respectively. If that’s true, then I guess there was something to what Juri said to her.

Helen doesn’t look like Helen anymore though. She should look like Kolin now. Unless her character takes place during and before ASF.

Hidef trailer.

Pause at 1:01. Akuma’s eyes are much more human, with only the pupils red but the white of eye intact. RETCON!

The first and The fourth silhouette seems to be Viper and Sakura; the others are not so clear,the second no clue, the third one is from someone very big maybe Sagat, the last one for the hair Sodom? Garuda? (I know, I know let a man dream) what seems to be very sure is that no Rose and no Oro ;(

Finally, SNH is proven without a doubt that it does not involve demons mugging you on Hell Street ave.

Also MvC:Infinite to have story mode and arcade mode! <3

edit: @Daemos Oh snap, it all went by so fast I didn’t even get a good look at his face. That is weird that he’s gone more mountain man (let everything grow out) and his eyes are radically different.

Jesus. I didn’t realise he had a full beard. He’s gone full Simba now. :confused:

His neck beads kinda weird now! I hope he had a classic look like Tekken 7 not SF4,


caught that they give Akuma a new english voice actor for 5 so no more of Akuma sounding like priate. honestly the new voice actor is an improvement.

Classic outfit confirmed

Honestly, if they were going to include Garuda then why the fuck did they bother with making Necalli?

There are somewhat “fins” in the feet that could be along Blanka or Sodom? Does Garuda had Fins in foor padding?

Nope, it’s Sodom.

It is not Garuda. I think the SFV profiles pretty much comfirmed once and for all that the EX characters are their own thing.

Nevermind that about the white pupils. We’re back to black fellas.

(Also, note how he stole Bison’s story mode costume. Fucker will never learn!)

“The 2017 Character Pass releases on December 20th for $29.99 / €29.99 / £24.99 and will grant pass holders with Akuma, in addition to 5 brand new fighters as they join the fray throughout 2017.

“5 Completely New Characters”

Thank God.

Now give me invisible shungokusatsu and everything will be alright.


As long as I won’t have to pay for that, of course.

More costumes


New CA is featured in SSF4 ending


Yeah… they would use the exact same artwork/pose from a 15+ years old game, for sure…
