Street Fighter V Story Mode Beaten by a Baby

I’m sure many readers will have been on the receiving end of that accusation, that questions your gaming integrity: “You play Civilization Revolution/Super Smash Bros/Wild Gunman? That’s a baby game!” While the hyperbolic barb can sting, it is never taken literally. Until now. Following accusations that beat ‘em up sequel Street Fighter V’s story mode is too easy, a mischievous gamer let his six-month-old baby “play” the single player game as Birdie, versus the computer. The result? The baby won:

“Sorry Super Smash Brothers, there’s a new game for babies to play,” writes YouTube user Papapaint. He then adds, in response to accusations that the video is a fake:

“For everyone saying it’s a fake, Birdie has moves which come out when you RELEASE a button after holding it for a while, and the EX versions come out from holding and releasing the 3punch or 3kick buttons. I’m too busy to waste time trying to fake my baby beating an easy story mode by mashing random buttons.”

The baby’s victory is a sad indictment of Yoshinori Ono, the producer tasked with rejuvenating the Street Fighter franchise. “Street Fighter IV had 44 characters by the end of its lifecycle and when you get to my age, you can’t remember all of them,” Ono told The Telegraph. “It’s not a game where you can remember just the one or two characters that you like to play as, you have to know them all in order to effectively defend against them and that means 44 characters’ worth of moves, weaknesses and, if you’re really hardcore, frame counts, too.”

“We really needed to reset, to go back to fewer characters and build it up from there again,” he said. “Whenever we were considering how many characters to include and the most that people could handle, well, 16 characters was the number that we had in the arcade version of Street Fighter IV and it just seemed to make sense as a starting point.”

Though, before the game’s release, there were hints that Street Fighter V would be the most “entry level” iteration of the series, with Ono revealing, “The barrier to entry for Street Fighter has always been in whether you can control the game.” He added: “Whether you can put your hands on the controller and pull off the moves has been this hurdle that you’ve had to clear to take part in the game. I want it to be in Street Fighter V that the hurdle you clear is your skill as a person able to strategise how to fight in the game. I don’t want it to be if your fingers can pull off this fireball motion.”

Mission accomplished, Ono.

Street Fighter V to Add Story Mode as a Free Update

 

With the release of Street Fighter V rapidly approaching, many fans of the fighting genre are already eagerly awaiting the game’s release, having already had the chance to try out beta builds of the game. It was doubtless that the game would include the standard array of arcade and versus modes the series is known for, but now Capcom has announced that this latest entry in the franchise will also include a story mode that will be added to the game as free DLC in summer.

All of the Street Fighter games so far have included some kind of plot, usually told through the arcade modes. In this mode a chosen character would typically fight a series of random opponents, coming to a climax when they would fight a number of the series ‘boss characters’, typically including the antagonist, M Bison. The older entries in the franchise would tell their stories through character bios and simple epilogues upon beating the arcade mode, but the most recent game Street Fighter IV included fully animated prologue and ending cutscenes for each character’s story. Series main character Ryu’s story was often the one considered to be the series canon, with a number of the other stories not contradicting his also being part of the universe.

Only time will tell whether the story mode for Street Fighter V will be unique for each character or whether there will be one story, requiring the player to take to the ring as a number of the series’ iconic characters. The best part is that it is free, not a feature to be included with updated ‘Super’ versions of the game sold again at almost full price.
