Balrog Makes His Way to Street Fighter V


The promised June update for Capcom’s latest iteration of the Street Fighter franchise, Street Fighter V, may be running a bit late but the little bit of delay may be worth it because it will now include the much-awaited cinematic story mode, as well as two characters: Ibuki and everybody’s favorite punch meister, Balrog.

The reveal trailer shows Balrog in action, and ironically enough, in a fight against the character who is now carrying the name that was originally his – M. Bison. The Balrog, Vega, and M.Bison names got switched up in most regions a long, long time ago. The boxer character originally had the M. Bison name and it made sense at the time due to being a play on the name “Mike Tyson.”

As for when you’ll get to play with Balrog and the new cinematic story mode, you should mark July 1 down in your calendar, and get ready to call in sick with a believable alibi ().
