Street Fighter V Previews Upcoming Fighter Dan in New Gameplay Trailer
Dan, joke character extraordinaire and fan favorite Street Fighter V combatant, gets his time to shine in a new gameplay preview trailer.
Capcom’s Special Program TGS livestream debuted a new Street Fighter V gameplay trailer for upcoming season 5 fighter Dan. The video demonstrates his entire moveset, as well as his taunts, and it seems like the resident joke character is still up to his old tricks again. Which I’m sure hardcore Dan fans will be happy to hear.
Dan and a host of new content hit SFV in winter 2020. This includes a stage, some costumes, and a new battle mechanic. In spring 2021, Rose fans will be happy to see her join the crew, with Oro and Akira releasing in summer 2021. Those updates will also drop new stages and costumes, and it seems that Dan is getting the biggest slice of the content pie.
Currently, the team is still keeping the fifth and final fighter under wraps. While we know they’re coming during winter 2021, we have no idea who it is at this time. Make sure to stay tuned for then that info becomes available.
Street Fighter V: Champion Edition launched earlier this year on February 14th. The Champion Edition included 40 characters, 34 stages, over 200 costumes, and all the modes released so far for the title. In addition, Gill — the main villain of Street Fighter 3 — was added to the roster either through the Champion Edition in February 2020. Seth from Street Fighter IV also made his debut with a complete redesign.
However, poor netcode continues to be a long running issue among players. Back in January a subredditor by the name of Altimor took to fixing it on the PC side, showing that it could be done in two days. Unfortunately the code did not work for PS4 and broke crossplay between the console and PC. Then on February 12th, Street Fighter V Executive Producer Yoshinori Ono announced on Twitter that Capcom was working on a netcode adjustment for a later release. Six days later, that patch came out and the results have been muddled, to say the least.
You still have time to snatch up Street Fighter V as one of the free PS Plus Games for this month, until October 5th. So if you have a membership, now’s a good time to take the game out for a test drive.
