Street Fighter V Gets Akuma Today, Seasonal Costumes Now Available

Runtime: 1:12    Author: CapcomSF    Category: Trailers

Capcom has started Street Fighter V’s latest season today. If you purchased the game’s 2017 Character Pass – currently $48.95 on the PlayStation Store – you’ll get access to Akuma, his story mode, and extra costumes. That pass will also give access to new characters and their costumes as they release.

The game’s 2016 Holiday Pack also released today. For $31.95 on the PlayStation Store, you’ll unlock six festive costumes, and a snowy version of the New York Stage. Check it out in action with the video above.

This new content also released alongside a hefty update, which brings several balance changes and system tweaks. The developer released a 92-page PDF going into detail. Here are some of the major changes:

Updated Rage Quit System – Players who frequently disconnect will receive a badge on their profile, publicly showing this information. Repeat offenders will find themselves matched up with other players displaying similar behaviour. League Points will be deducted whenever a players disconnects.

Direct Input Controller Support for PC - So my fight stick will finally work. Yay!

Invincible Moves - Those that don’t use meter (like Shoryuken) have had extra hurtboxes added to specific frames.

Normal Throws - Characters who could perform multiple throws at screen edges will now have a harder time doing so. This has buffed fighters with long reach and fast strikes, so those attacks have been tweaked to balance it out.

Any of the changes make you want to jump back into Street Fighter V? Let us know in the comments below!

Been waiting for Akuma and interesting hair style he has going now but still should be fun to play. Also really want that Juri outfit but if it's part of a bundle will probably skip it as not fussed with the others.

Managed to get enough fight money together from survival to cop Akuma, never really been a huge fan of him in other games, but he looks sick here.

I've made $64,000 so far this year working online and I'm a full time student. Im using an online business opportunity I heard about and I've made such great money. It's really user friendly and I'm just so happy that I found out about it. Heres what I do,

$32 for some costumes ouch that is quite a hefty price. Of course by the look of that trailer it's likely to sell well.
