Street Fighter 5: Capcom Acknowledges It Underrated Fan Interest In Single Player Modes
They say, yes, they are very excited about the two new individual modalities that will be incorporated.
Capcom has received harsh criticism about the lack of individual content for a Street Fighter V that has been especially focused on multiplayer. They have intoned the mea culpa through the mouth of their chief creative officer, and have promised to improve in this regard.
"I think it's clear that we have underestimated the popularity of individual events," Yoshinori Ono said in an interview with the North American magazine GameInformer. "With that said, we are excited to include two individual modes such as Character Story and Survival Mode, and we have plans to continue expanding and refining these experiences."
As for how long they will offer support to the video game, he stated that they expect to work "as much or more" than in Street Fighter IV, a video game to which they dedicated almost eight years of post-launch coverage. "Street Fighter V is an ever-evolving platform, which will continue to be refined and built as time goes on. For us this is a marathon and not a sprint, so we appreciate all your words of support as we embark on this joint journey."
