Street Fighter V In-Game Ads Return

Capcom is bringing back Street Fighter V in-game ads for their partnership deal with Japanese clothing brand UNIQLO.

A while ago developer/publisher Capcom has introduced in-game advertising within Street Fighter V, fifth mainline release from their popular fighting game series Street Fighter and was eventually removed upon negative fan-response.

Of course, people were still skeptical that it may only be a temporary move they pulled off and might return anytime in the foreseeable future. Capcom has brought back that function today to promote a Japanese clothing brand UNIQLO UT.

After collaborating with major video game companies like Blizzard and Nintendo in past, the clothing shop has shifted focus on popular characters of the Street Fighter franchise. Their collection of tees will be mostly comprised of classic victory quotes and screen from SF series.

Their initial design lineup features characters like Akuma, Bison, Cammy, Chun Li, Dhalsim, E. Honda, Guile, Ken, Ryu and Sagat from the 90's legendary arcade game Street Fighter II and current flagship title Street Fighter V.

UNIQLO UT is looking at this Spring window to launch their twelve different Street Fighter UT collection designs in stores and online alongside Capcom Cup 2019 event. They also released some spectacular promotional artwork to compliment their upcoming clothing line.

As part of their partnership program, advertisements are returning once again in exchange for some in-game currency "Fight Money" to allow them, which could otherwise be gained via gameplay but a lot differently this time.

Showing ads on character outfits, loading screens and stages was criticized and heavily rejected by fans saying the feature is ruining the aesthetic of the game that was already troubled with series of issues from when it launched.

However, they are returning to show UNIQLO's logo on Capcom Pro Tour-themed stages and everywhere else they used to, except for the characters this time. Apparently, they have learned a lesson from receiving unwanted fan backlash from last time.

Street Fighter V Won't Have Season Pass for 2019

Unlike past seasons of Street Fighter V, Capcom has no plans for a Season Pass of DLC characters for the 2019.

After finishing the year in grace with Capcom Cup 2018, developer/publisher Capcom decided to introduce a brand-new character for their immensely popular fighting game Street Fighter V and they did so a few days ago with Kage (Kah-Gay).

With that announcement, the company is showing up intention of mixing things up in 2019 for SFV. Season 4 is just on the horizon and players thought that reveal of this new character DLC would come up with more details on Season Pass but apparently, they don't have a plan for it.

Though people are calling the character out as a bad Halloween costume for Ryu or some citing this as just another crazed cosplay character, he is the physical embodiment of the Satsui no Hado and not Evil Ryu to be very specific.

The initial reaction from the fans for Kage was mostly mixed but many of them were not much interested about his inclusion anyway. You can purchase the currently available DLC for only $5.99 or in exchange for 100,000 Fight Money.

However, Capcom didn't go on hinting at who else would be there on their content plan for next season and announced the following on Twitter.

Of course they have no intention to stop with Kage and probably bring in more fighters next year but instead of offering a bundle of half-dozen warriors for a discounted price, they will probably sold them separately for in-game currency or real money. We are not sure yet.

There is also a possibility that the developers are moving towards a sequel or going for a free-to-play model. Producer Yoshinori Ono of Street Fighter V mentioned in a 2016 interview to Famitsu that they have plans to support the game to 2020 at least though.

Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition Adds Kage

A brand-new character Kage joins the roster of Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition for Season 4 from December 16.

After the Arcade Edition of fan-favorite fighting game Street Fighter V released for PC and PlayStation 4 earlier this year, developer/publisher Capcom had a great run with it and professional players on many tournaments and fans loved it.

To show appreciation to the community folks, they have created a brand-new character named Kage out of the shadow of Satsui no Hado, the evil force that is rooted inside Akuma and he will join the roster from the very beginning of the next season.

Below is an official trailer that showcased the reveal of the character and some of his gameplay features you can check out in advance.

Initially, Kage may look a lot like Evil Ryu nor is he a revamped skin but he definitely is not and is something very different. When Ryu has rejected to embrace the power of Satsui no Hado, the physical embodiment of it has taken form and become Kage.

Ryu actually has the dark power of Satsui no Hado within him and whenever he lets it take over his persona altogether, he becomes Evil Ryu. When this persona takes over, he is on a path of destruction under the influence of the dark force.

For years, he has been desperately trying to keep it at bay so that it cannot consume him entirely and now has overcome the weight of that power. However, Satsui no Hado decides to chose a path of its own and rises in the form of Kage.

Following his transformation, the character puts up a brutal display of his raw power against opponents like Akuma, Ryu and Sagat, destroying each of them one by one by unleashing his moves on them in battle with ruthless efficiency.

Kage has variation of Hadoken fireballs inspired from both Akuma and Ryu that he can conjure up. He also has the axe kick, Ryusokyaku of Evil Ryu while being able to deliver shoryuken uppercut and a spinning kick to the opponent.

The Critical Arts and V-triggers in him are just two other powerful attack Taigyaku Mudo and Shun Goku Satsu to throw his opponents off balance. The latter is the similar move to the Raging Demon that Akuma uses but is specifically modified for the character here.
