Ibuki Ninjas Her Way Into Street Fighter 5 [Trailer]

Posted by 125805786 on

Street Fighter 3: Third Strike veteran Ibuki has ninja'd her way into Street Fighter 5, bringing along many of her traditional moves and a few new ones. As a ninja, SF5’s Ibuki is skilled in the arts of ninjutsu and looks to have great mobility both on the ground and in the air. She can still hurl a kunai at her opponent, but Capcom has made things a little bit more interesting by allowing players to throw one, two or up to five daggers at a time.

Guile Enters Street Fighter 5 as the All-American [Trailer]

Posted by 125805786 on

Guile has finally arrived in Street Fighter 5 sporting his iconic flattop haircut and moves. As one of the classic world warriors, Guile remains a charge character and retains his trademark Sonic Boom and Flash Kick as his only special moves.

Street Fighter 5 Doesn’t Beat Street Fighter 4 Week One Sales

Posted by 125805786 on

Despite all the hype and marketing, Street Fighter 5 wasn’t able to beat Street Fighter 4’s week one sales, at least in the United Kingdom. Street Fighter 4 debuted at No.1 on the UK sales chart when it launched on PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 back in 2009. While SF5's results might seem disappointing considering that there is a large fighting game community in the Northern European country, it is worth noting that the game only launched on the PS4 and PC and isn’t available on the Xbox One.
