Street Fighter V's June Story Update Arrives July 1 With Extra Balrog

Street Fighter V’s long-awaited story mode arrives this Friday on PlayStation 4 and PC. In case you need more incentive stay offline to play an extended single-player mode, Capcom’s releasing Balrog as well.


As detailed in Patrick’s lovely what to expect when you’re expecting Street Fighter V story DLC article from earlier this month, all of the remaining DLC characters will be playable in the cinematic story expansion. But while Juri and Urien, who you can catch at the end of the trailer below, appear in playable preview form and won’t be available for multiplayer, Balrog is getting a full release. A full, painful, face-crushing release.

And of course the update also brings Ibuki, meaning my most favorite character to play and my least favorite to play against are being released on the same day. Story mode it is!

I was trying to figure out what I was looking at before hitting ‘play’ to start the gif animation. I thought I was looking at someone’s butt cheeks from behind as they were riding a motorcycle.
