Imagine if Capcom started off with those Uniqlo promos when they implemented sponsored content last December.

I datamined this tiny update and they only added the assets for these ads (stadium/ring stages and the 3 loading screens). So even if they made the promotional art with E.Honda and Vega they decided to don't include them in the game. It isn't even hidden.

Does it mean they will release E.Honda soonish and decided to keep it for later? Does it mean they decided to don't use the E.Honda illustration because they don't plan to include him in-game so they don't want to include something that may be received as a tease for something that won't be released so it would be misleading?

If the t-shirt promotion starts April 15th why does the in-game ads end on April's 1st? Maybe they plan to replace on April's 2nd with another round of Uniqlo ads using different assets that would feature a certain fat, Japanese character that they plan to release around that day, a Tuesday?

Mmm... now I see that the t-shirts shown in Capcom's site (2 of them featuring Honda) aren't the same than in the Uniqlo website (don't feature Honda):

Edit: The reason is that in Capcom's website they show the back of the t-shirt.

Capcom:


Uniqlo:



Is there a new character behind Ryu and Chun in this image from the Uniqlo website?


Who knows. Let's wait and see.

People would have complained, as people will complain now again once ads are back. People will keep hating SFV until they release SFVI, it's the Capcom cycle.

In my case, I think they made a great improvement with the ads. No embarassing logos in costumes and instead super cool exclusive SF illustrations for the loadings and well integrated logos for the backgrounds, plus an average of 14FM per fight played. I think it's the way to do them, maybe increasing a bit the FM reward.

Oh, that Honda shirt makes a hell of a lot more sense now considering Ryu's on the front

Edit: I hope the arms go all the way around the dhalsim shirt

I can't wait to be the only happy person here when Decapre is released after Final Round on Sunday <3

The new artwork is GORGEOUS!
The tshirts are lame, though.
Can we keep the artwork in the game even after the promotion?

People are justified in complaining about the ads in the game. It has nothing to do with "hating SFV". There are plenty of people that like the game and find the concept distasteful. The ads are gross and don't belong in a paid game, regardless of how the product is themed. Doesn't matter if they are SF shirts or Pringles.

I kinda wish they went the extra mile kinda, and had characters wear the actual shirts with a different outfit as a choice. The lounging weekend costume pack. Sweat pants and a t-shirt, man.

Looks like the ad content will be available in two rounds, each lasting 3 weeks. I guess the second round is meant to coincide with the next Premier event?


I wonder how much the FM limit will be this time? Last time I maxed out at about 1,300 FM from 150 casual matches.

It's weird that they release the shirts on April 15th.

Remember when Capcom did that whole ARG-like thing leading up to the G reveal (which also ended up being doubled with Sagat)?

Fun times.

Now that Hiroaki is drawing for this game, we can officially call SF5 doomed.
It was fun while it lasted.
EDIT: Wait, it's Tamio.
Crisis averted.

Well, tomorrow is the SFV Type Arcade release. Do we have people in this thread from Japan who can check out tomorrow if the arcade has any surprise feature or content?

Seems like most arcades open at 10 AM JST, so that'd be in 11 hours, unless there's some midnight event for certain arcades.

This page says that the launch will just be the current console version, so I doubt there'll be anything special: https://enotakagame.info/sfv-ac-start#i-2

Thanks! Yes, it's what I saw: like the PS4 version, it's mostly the PC version with some tweaks and changes. This time, it should be the current 4.021 with another menu allowing you to fight people online both from that local arcade or from all the ones around Japan, using your own pad or stick and using your home SFV account through that new Nesica card.

Please let us know if there is some other difference or addition. :)

The only changes in Type A that is uses BP/PP ranking system. Other than, it should perform better than the PS4 version which would mostly cause issues with dsync playing matches between the hardware.

Also Final Round is this weekend. No teaser or anything.

Wait, someone translate for me! Did Tokido just get sponsored by Sony Music?!


If so, I want a Tokido rap album STAT. Or Tokido sings enka. That must be part of the contract.

EDIT: Wait, there's more?! Just in time for Final Round this weekend.

ESPN announces Collegiate Esports Championship featuring Street Fighter 5: Arcade Edition, Overwatch, Starcraft 2, Hearthstone and Heroes of the Storm where universities and colleges from around North America will compete:
https://www.eventhubs.com/news/2019/mar/13/espn-announces-collegiate-esports-championship-featuring-street-fighter-5-arcade-edition-overwatch-starcraft-2-hearthstone-and-more/

There are some words from Ono there saying "yes, haters from Era or Eventhubs comments section are right: SFV is awful and dead, even the universities and ESPN agree. We already had Capcom Pro Tour and Capcom Cup, then Street Fighter League Japan and Street Fighter League USA and since the game is so bad and doomed that nobody is interested on it we created another SFV eSport event with these partners that aren't important in the USA". (Note just in case you don't get it: I'm kidding)
