Street Fighter 5 launched last week, with long-time fans of the series feeling like it was more of an Early Access game than a full launch. While we’re fine with its initial lineup of fighters, we wish there were more game modes, especially a more traditional Arcade mode. Capcom is planning on adding more content to Street Fighter 5 in March, but one that that has yet to be confirmed is an Arcade mode.
According to a statement submitted to Forbes, Capcom “is looking into adding an Arcade Mode and we’ll have more information to share soon.” The company is also planning on adding difficulty sliders to its existing Story Mode.
The Arcade Mode has been a staple of the Street Fighter series and is just as important as any Haodoukens or Sonic Booms. To release Street Fighter 5 without a proper Arcade Mode, or any real game modes outside of its lackluster Story Mode, its never-ending Survival Mode, and its bare bones local and online versus modes, was a huge oversight.
Hopefully Capcom will work on getting Arcade Mode, or any other additional game modes, into Street Fighter 5 sooner rather than later.
