Street Fighter 5 May Introduce Arcade Mode In Future

Capcom will introduce a full story mode to Street Fighter 5 via a free update this summer but the publisher may introduce additional modes to the fighting game. Speaking to Forbes, a Capcom representative revealed that the company is reviewing the possibility of introducing an Arcade Mode at some point in the future.

“The team is looking into adding an Arcade Mode and we’ll have more information to share soon,” the spokesperson commented. Additional details about the mode or when it might be implemented were not announced.

Street Fighter 5 released last week without an Arcade Mode – which has been a staple of previous games in the franchise. The scarcity of game modes was more obvious due to the absence of modes which have been present in the series since its earliest days.

Capcom’s representative also revealed that the company is considering the options for adding difficulty sliders to the existing story mode in Street Fighter 5. The full story mode is set to be released in June as a free update.

Earlier today, Capcom announced that Street Fighter 5’s server maintenance will continue indefinitely as they try to improve the game’s performance, which has been inconsistent of late.

The game launched with severe server trouble and limited game modes on PlayStation 4 and PC. Many reviews suggested that Capcom’s latest has the potential to be great but is barebones at the moment and it may be prudent to wait for June’s update before buying the game if you haven’t already.
