Major Street Fighter V battle balance and extra aesthetic features coming March 29

Update brings together combat adjustments with fun visual filters.

Hello, Fighters around the world! With Capcom Pro Tour concluding another epic season just last month, we continue our tradition of opening the season by taking a fresh pass at Street Fighter V’s battle balance, further fine-tuning each character in the roster… But wait, there’s more! We’re also releasing a couple of extra fun features, including visual filters and the jazzy Cap-Jams remixes for the Season 5 fighters — all coming to Street Fighter V for free on March 29.

Battle Balance

This will be our first Battle Balance since the arrival of Season 5’s characters—Dan, Rose, Akira, Oro, and Luke—so we’re excited to tinker with the entire cast in this new context and, ultimately, see what you will make of it all. We feel the S5 crew is in a pretty good spot, but don’t worry—they’re also getting some tweaks. Here’s a quick preview of the diligent Akira and the colossal Abigail.

In general, our Battle Balance updates bring lots of little adjustments to each characters’ move sets and properties (some attacks become faster, while others do more damage or gain new special attributes). However, sometimes we got a little extra inspiration and added a few surprises too! So this coming Tuesday, you’ll have plenty to play around with and discover in the training room or, if you’re feeling adventurous, in online matches! Good luck!

Visual Filters

Going beyond our traditional Battle Balance updates, we’re adding two fancy new visual filters for everyone to enjoy. The Cel-Shaded Filter adds a stylish anime-esque look to the fighters and their animations—perfect for those flashy Critical Arts K.O. finishes —while the Pixel Filter mimics the old-school vibes from Street Fighter’s arcade roots.

Note: to keep things as fair as possible in online matches, we’re restricting these filters to offline game modes only.

Cap-Jams

If you’ve been following each of Season 5’s character releases, you’ll already know our sound team band Cap-Jams has been putting out killer remixes of each character’s battle theme. If you didn’t know… well, now you do! These remixes are always awesome and a fun take on the original versions. Up until now, you could only listen to them on the Street Fighter YouTube channel, but starting with this update, you’ll be able to set them as background battle tracks in-game! May the Cap-Jams groves guide you to victory.

Capcom Pro Tour Cosmetics

Looking ahead, we have Capcom Pro Tour 2022 coming up this year. To celebrate the start of a new competitive season, we’re adding new DLC to the mix, including a special new color for all characters and a brand new stage Ring of Arcade packed with Easter Eggs referencing Capcom’s legacy. See if you can spot them all.

    • I’m making over $25000 a month working part time. I kept hearing other people tell me how much money they can make online so I decided to look into it. Well, it was all true and has totally changed my life. Last month my pay check was $26385 just working on the laptop for 3 hours. This is what I do

  • That Ring of Arcade kicks right on the nostalgia. I love it.

  • “However, sometimes we got a little extra inspiration and added a few surprises too!”

    Hopefully that means worthwhile buffs for Juri as well. Juri players have been waiting for buffs since the day she was released.

    The cel shading filter is cool. Hope SF6 uses that.

  • I am not there with these products anymore, mobile phone gaming has an supportive price. I have tried to purchase, but my internet is only video, need every item!

  • The new stage is really awesome, love to see again a lot of references to Capcom classics like Final Fight, Captain Commando, Mega Man, Street Fighter II, Red Earth/Warzard and so on! I also love to see many new songs added to the game, gameplay rebalance with even some new (EX?) moves and the new visual filters. Let’s hope Street Fighter 6 gets an evolved version of these filters since the launch of the game!

    It had a rough start specially regarding single player offline content (let’s hope SF6 starts with enough single player content), but the game is going to end in a great shape. Now it’s amazing.

  • Why no PS5 updated version? Sony support your investment!! See the game through with a updated version and netcode to holds us until SFVI!!

    It would be awesome to be able to use those filters online!!

    • I agree there needs to be a PS5 Update.

    • This is Capcom’s game. Also why do we even need 4K if the game works fine in 1080p? If 4K is what you wanted then you should’ve bought a Gaming PC and buy the game off of Steam.

  • PLEASE MAKE A PS5 PATCH TO ENHANCE THE GRAPHICS :)

  • Street Fighter V is my favorite SF game! I also own USFIV on Xbox 360 and PS4, SF30th on PS4, Switch and Xbox One and even Ultra SFII on Switch. So gonna buy the 2022 CPT DLC and looking forward to SF6 and Capcom Fighting Collection (Especially since I will finally play Hyper SFII, Gem Fighter, Puzzle FIghter and the Darkstalkers series).

  • I just love that new stage, so SFVI will be PS exclusive to?
