We will have a simultaneous [Street Fighter 5] release all across the world. No region will be late, and everyone will be able to play at the same time,” Ayano explained.

“This is just a small expression of our gratitude to all of the people here in Hong Kong who’ve been supporting Street Fighter for so long,” Ono added.

Recently, Capcom attempted to launch Street Fighter V’s beta on PlayStation 4, but after significant server issues the beta was taken offline and delayed until a later date.
