It took them long enough, but we now have a concrete release date for Street Fighter V. It was revealed during Sony’s Paris Games Week conference that the game will launch on February 16th, 2016.
On top of that, fan favorite fighter Dhalsim was shown off in a new character trailer, which you can check out below.
The coolest news regarding the game is that an additional six characters will be added to the game within the first year of release. These characters will be purchased via an in-game currency that you get through regular gameplay, meaning that no real-life money will be needed. Hooray for stuff that doesn’t cost real money!
Street Fighter V launches on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on February 16th, 2016.
