After months of teasing and game trailers, the release date for Street Fighter 5 has finally been set. Street Fighter 5 has been anticipated by fans for a very long time now so it's great to see the date finally being revealed.
So when will Street Fighter 5 be released? The game will come on February 16, 2016 for North America and Europe. Other regions have not had their release dates revealed, but if you're in a region that usually gets releases near the time of North America and Europe, then you can expect to see Street Fighter 5 around February 16 next year.
On top of the February 16 release date unveiling, some DLC information was released. It was mentioned that 6 DLC characters would be released in the following 12 months after the launch of Street Fighter 5. It was also revealed that Dhalsim will be in Street Fighter 5 - it's expected that he'll be a playable character at launch.
As for the rest of the fighters available at launch, we're not quite sure about this. Capcom has kept their mouths shut when it's come to the roster in Street Fighter 5. We're undoubtedly going to see the characters we've seen in previous trailers and gameplay videos, but the full roster currently remains a mystery.
Now that the release date of Street Fighter 5 has been announced, will you consider dropping Tekken 7 or Mortal Kombat X to play it in 2016?
