Street Fighter V
"Street Fighter V" is coming to the PS4 and PC on Feb. 16. PlayStation Blog

Excitement over “Street Fighter V” is building up towards the awaited launch. Apart from the sneak peek trailer that Capcom has released featuring the different modes in the game, there is now a glimpse of some screens from the Story Mode.

The screenshots, care of a NeoGAF user who managed to get them during the tournament showcase, contain designs of some of the characters in “Street Fighter V.” Shoryuken features the screenshots, which show off a younger version of Sean, Guile, Cammy, Chun-Li, Nash and Laura.

Interestingly enough, those who have been following the “Street Fighter” franchise will be surprised to see Sean Matsuda, Laura’s younger brother, looking a little too white compared to his previous character design. And instead of his brown hair, it has been turned into a fluffy tuft of red locks. Then again, Laura’s design makes her have a similar skin tone as her brother, so this may be a result of the actual colouring for the Story Mode. The screens can be seen in the link above.

In the meantime, fans can enjoy a few new character introduction videos for “Street Fighter V.” Among the newest that have been released include Necalli, Zangief, Ken and Nash, the last of which can be seen below.

As a brief introduction to new fans, Necalli is one of the new faces in the roster. Interestingly, none of his past was touched on in the introduction series, though it does feature some pretty intense and brutal moves. Zangief is the Red Cyclone known for his wrestling style moves and a tank-like move when used wisely.

Ken is a well-known face in the “Street Fighter” franchise, and one of the more favoured players in the game. Charlie Nash is a returning character has an interesting background in that he may not be the original character from the franchise. Having been written off as dead after “Street Fighter Alpha,” Nash also sports an altered appearance, described as “Frankenstein-esque” though not much is detailed from here on.

“Street Fighter V” I coming to the PS4 and PC on Feb. 16. Recently, PlayStation Blog revealed that there will be a Story Expansion coming as a free content update later this year in June.
