So whether you are a veteran in the franchise or a complete newcomer you would be able to quickly dive into the intense action.
Top the Fighting Ground
Retaining the traditional features of the Street Fighter series, this mode allows you to experience the latest versions of the popular characters and game modes from previous games with an up-to-date graphics and visuals.
Explore the completely new system to manage your resources called the Drive Gauge which is also introduced in this entry.

Street Exploration in World Tour
Understand the exact meaning of strength in the World Tour mode, a very immersive, single-player story-based mode. Create your own avatar and explore what Metro City has to offer and go even beyond.

That way you would be able to create a mixed set of skills and combinations that would compile your own unique style and fighting methods. Imagine having the strongest moves that the all-stars got, but in one character that you designed, sounds great, doesn’t it?
