Finally after eight years of waiting from Street Fight IV, Capcom has officially release Street Fighter V this year in 16th of February 2016, just 3 days ago!
With teasing rumor roaming from ear to ear in 2014, players have been waiting impatiently for the news of the official word which came out in June last year on E3. While Capcom did a release of Ultra Street Fighter IV to be on PlayStation 4 Console, they leaked a teaser video of Street Fighter V showing two playable characters, Ryu on first player and Chun-Li on second player. Later in end of August last year, the worldwide beta test was opened for players to trial over the period of five days. Locally, there was a Street Fighter V Singapore Launch Party just yesterday at Queen Street.
