During Sony’s E3 press conference Capcom teased more Street Fighter V goodness with a teaser trailer which we’ve taken the liberty to show you as well as list a blowout of images of the games TWO new challengers – Cammy and Birdie. Both characters will make their return to the Street Fighter universe, where they join previously-announced classic characters Ryu, Chun-Li, Charlie Nash, and M. Bison. Many more new and returning characters will be added to the diverse roster, offering a wide variety of fighting styles for players to choose from.
Cammy has been a staple of the Street Fighter series since her debut in Super Street Fighter II, and returns faster and stronger than ever before in the upcoming Street Fighter V. Utilizing a wide variety of quick ground and aerial attacks to pressure her opponents, her rush down style will suit offensive minded players of all types. Birdie makes his long awaited return, having last appeared in the Street Fighter Alpha series over 10 years ago. Completely redesigned and reimagined, Birdie’s “larger than life” look masks the fierce power packed into his long range chain attacks and up-close command grabs, making him a threat from every distance.
Also announced today, the first online beta program for Street Fighter V will be exclusive to PS4 players and will run for five days, from July 23 to July 28. In the US, those who pre-order the game through select retailers or through PlayStation Network (PSN) will be granted automatic access to the beta.
Finally, Capcom officially confirmed that Street Fighter V for PS4 and PC will be released in Spring 2016.
