Ibuki, Balrog Coming to Street Fighter V on July 1

Capcom has announced that both Ibuki and Balrog will be added to Street Fighter V on July 1st.

The two characters will be released for the game alongside the much-anticipated “June” update, which also adds a cinematic story mode.

Featured above, a new trailer was shown off to introduce Balrog, which also teases Juri and Urien at the end (the last of six confirmed post-launch DLC characters).

    Why is Urien wearing clothes?

    According to the timeline, SF5 takes place about 2 years before the SF3 games. So, there is a legit reason for the clothes.

    Or, hell, maybe $CURRENT_YEAR is not ready for Urien to be rocking that speedo.

    Because feminist… any questions?

    Hyperaggressive nigger stereotype is totally acceptable within the SJW’s sphere of mentality.

    Speedo is his V Trigger.

    You… do realize Balrog has been a character in Street Fighter ever since 1990, right?

    Yeah, I know but it doesn’t change the fact that his entire character doesn’t trigger them unlike Mika R. and buttslaps.

    While I get what you’re saying, it’s pretty hard for them to argue against a side-by-side video game comparison of Mike Tyson.

    SJWs have already forgotten about SFV because they don’t play video games unless it’s Nintendo. Keep that in mind next time.

    Eh. I don’t think they have. Apparently Juri was censored in SFV.

    Actually no. Feminist double-standards means they have no problems with male characters wearing next to nothing.

    He will have an alternative costume in his thong. And you won’t hear anything from the feminists.

    So that’ll be why Rainbow Mika was censored in SF5?

    That’ll be why DOAX3 wasn’t released to the West?

    The cover of Divinity: Original sin censored?

    Blade & Soul being censored to hell for the Western version?

    Katsuhiro Harada refusing to bring Summer Lesson to the West because of SJWs?

    Criminal Girls being censored?

    All the above are Nintendo games. Oh wait a minute!

    Wait, Divinity’s cover was censored?

    I’ll actually give Capcom the benefit of the doubt with Juri. While Juri was depicted without the skin tight undergarment in the Bengus art of the small Story Mode segments, we also had a white Sean, a Laura with super anorexic waist and tan lines, and Balrog with Mr. PoPo/Jynx lips, none being representive of their final models.

    The addition of Ibuki finally makes me want to play this.

    …daaaaamn did they have to censor the goddamn thigh too!? T_T

    It’s ridiculous isn’t it? In my opinion she looked MUCH better in the original.
