As the victor, they’re the final Street Fighter 5 champion as official tournaments prepare for the launch of Street Fighter 6. “Excellent sunrise for all Dominicans, and Dominican esports. Saul Mena, Capcom Cup Champion.” writes the olympic committee on Twitter (translated via google translate), MenaRD has been a notable player since 2017, when he made a big impact as one of Latin America's best fighting game players. MenaRD has also invested a lot of his winnings over the years into building up gaming communities in his region, which traditionally hasn’t got as much financial support as places like the USA, UK, or Japan. It was in 2017 following his first Capcom Cup victory that he donated a large portion of his $250,000 winnings to building up his local scene.

The team behind Street Fighter 5: Mysterious Mod, an impressive fan-made update to the game that adds new moves, balance changes, and other major tweaks to SF5, today revealed their interpretation of Fei Long on YouTube with a video that the groups ays "marks the start of a new project." Check it out: Read more Update: Fei Long never returning to Street Fighter was "hypothetical" according to SFV composerMay 10, 2022 - VG247We reached out to Daniel Lindholm regarding his statements, as he has since delated his video and posted on social media that he was merely speculating on the situation. He told VG247: “I was speaking on a hypothetical level about Fei Long, which is not fact.” He also clarified that the sources he cited as being close to the Lee family were in fact based on pre-existing news. “When it comes to the family of Mr. Lee, it has been a discussion for years, especially for Quentin Tarantino for the way he portrayed Mr. Lee in bad light, which was not appreciated. That is a fact and something the family have been protecting for a long time.” Landholm also insists that “the information I had was not from Capcom” and that his statements were purely speculative.

Wearing a modest purple robe and brown rope belt, Oro swaps his pet turtle between his right and left hands as a way to challenge himself and maintain a balanced fighting style. Oro retains many of his original moves and adds a handful of new ones for Street Fighter V, making him an immensely powerful fighter for players to master. Making her highly-anticipated Street Fighter debut, Akira Kazama began her fighting game career in the Rival Schools series, which began in 1997. In Street Fighter V, Akira dons her trademark black biker gear and prides herself on being the strong, silent type. That said, her playstyle speaks volumes when she’s at close range, but she’s also equipped with some long-distance moves that will leave her opponents thinking twice about straying too far. With plenty of new tricks up her biker gloves, Akira has been studying up and will be ready to school anyone who crosses her path. Alongside the playable character Akira, “Rival Riverside” is a new Street Fighter V stage that has been reimagined from Akira’s Rival Schools days. Set near a familiar river and Akira’s high school, this stage takes place during sunset and includes several familiar faces from back in the day. Oro and Akira can be acquired with the Street Fighter V Season 5 Character Pass or the Season 5 Premium Pass. Both characters can also be purchased separately for MSRP $5.99 or 100,000 Fight Money.

Sakura's face as it appears on the Street Fighter 5 character select screen has been a point of contention ever since she was added to the fighting game in January 2018, with some criticising her "bug eyes" and "alien" look. The update changes Sakura's character select stance, and so we see her face from a slightly different angle and with different lighting. This makes all the difference, and her face on character select now doesn't have that bug-like alien look.

Guilty Gear Strive tips to help you improve your gameplay Street Fighter at Evo 2017 Tops League of Legends’ Viewer Count Over the WeekendJul 19, 2017 - GitHypThe biggest fighting game tournament of the year lived up to the hype with the Street Fighter V main event at Evo 2017 bringing in over two hundred thousand concurrent viewers on Twitch -- enough to just barely top League of Legend’s on Sunday, which saw its viewers down 13% from the same time last year. Although Evo 2017’s main event wasn’t enough to take the number one spot on Twitch from CS:GO’s second major of the year with a $1 million prize pool, it was still enough to just barely top Evo 2016’s peak of 203k concurrent viewers and to set a new all-time high viewer count for SFV. Here were last week’s top 10 most watched games on Twitch:
  1. Counter-Strike: Global Offensive – 586,590 viewers
  2. Street Fighter V – 206,260 viewers
  3. League of Legends – 200,478 viewers
  4. PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds – 152,301 viewers
  5. Tekken 7 – 143,017 viewers
  6. Super Smash Bros. Wii U – 138,193 viewers
  7. Super Smash Bros. Melee – 119,762 viewers
  8. BlazBlue: Centralfiction – 108,407 viewers
  9. Overwatch – 92,321 viewers
  10. Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 – 88,663 viewers
Based on the top 10 list, there weren’t any huge upsets at this year’s Evo and the viewer counts aligned with each game’s placement in the schedule. Tekken 7 and SSB Wii U were both right before SFV on Sunday and SSB Melee was Saturday night’s main event. Meanwhile, other finals on Saturday saw much lower viewer counts. Injustice 2 only pulled in a peak of 42,791 viewers at #14 and Guilty Gear Xrd REV 2 came in right behind at #15 with 42,691 viewers. Friday night’s main event, The King of Fighters XIV was the least watched at #24 with 34k viewers. We originally predicted that it might be too soon for Tekken 7 to take the top spot at Evo 2017. But if Tekken can stop its playerbase from continuing to decline, there’s still a good chance that continued support from the FGC could be what it takes to dethrone Street Fighter in 2018.
