Looks Like There’s A Steelbook To Go With That Street Fighter 5 Year Plan
If you’re going to make a game about the worlds strongest fighters, it should probably come in a pretty strong case. Capcom has announced that, along with a five year plan for the game, there will be a Day One Steelbook Edition for Street Fighter V.

Remember the last time someone promised a plan for a game that was meant to last a multiple of five years? Yeah, that didn’t turn out well. I do however have faith in Capcom with Street Fighter. They have been doing it for years already, you just have to look at the multiple versions of Street Fiver IV that have been released.
Series producer Yoshi Ono stated in an interview with Eurogamer that, while Street Fighter V’s roster is only 16 characters, they hope for the game to catch up to the formidable 44 characters in Ultra Street Fighter IV.
“Simple maths suggests it’d take five years to get to the roster of Street Fighter 4, and we want to keep the game going for that amount of time. We want to support it as long as we can, we honestly will have to see – we don’t know anymore than anyone else does how it’s going to turn out next February, once we do this completely new way of doing things.”
Well, we already know how the new characters/DLC will be delivered in Street Fighter V, so only time will tell how this all plays out. It seems silly, but I’d rather this model than having to pay for the game four times just to stay updated.
In other poor industry practices, it looks like there is a pre-order edition coming for Street Fighter V. It’s supposed to include “all the content from the game” which probably means it’ll include all the pre-order DLC with the game.
It does look like a pretty box though, but it might have to stand open for you to appreciate it. It’s supposed to be available in Europe so that means we should see it hit our retail shelves.
Street Fighter V is scheduled to release on the 16th of February 2016 on PS4 and PC.
