In an interview with HipHopGamer, producer Matt Dahlgren was asked whether Capcom intends to change the way it delivers story in light of the positive reception to Mortal Kombat and Mortal Kombat X's cinematic approach to storytelling.
"I can't reveal specifics on our story, but I can say we are going to be doing things differently this time around," Dahlgren replied. "We're definitely paying attention to what our competitors are doing and want to raise the bar."
He continued: "Our story content is going to be unique and different from any previous Street Fighter game."
Street Fighter V does not currently have a confirmed release date, but Capcom has said that the game will be out during its current fiscal year, which ends on March 31, 2016.
Laura Matsuda, a Brazillian Jiu-Jitsu user, was announced recently for the game. As the heir to the famed Matsuda Jiu-Jitsu fighting style, she travels the world seeking out strong opponents to defeat, building a legendary name for her style.
Capcom previously confirmed that there will be four brand new characters coming to Street Fighter V. In addition to Laura, the studio has already revealed Necalli and Rashid. One more completely new character announcement is still left.
Take a look at a gallery of Laura screenshots below.
