Street Fighter V celebrates year 5 with the return of a classic

Street Fighter V celebrates year 5 with the return of a classic

The greatest fighter of all time is back for Street Fighter V’s fifth anniversary. Or actually, that should probably read “worst” fighter. Maybe.

Hibiki returns

He’s back folks. Originally a joke character of sorts from Capcom’s Alpha series, Dan Hibiki has returned, this time in Street Fighter V. Dan is loaded up with all his taunts, and is ready to school any and all opposition according to Capcom. He’s also just a part of the season 5 fun too, as today also brings all all-new V-Shift option.

Unlike Dan, V-Shift is free to add to your game, and gives players new “defensive options and strategies”.

Costing just one bar of V-Gauge, when timed correctly, V-Shift allows players to execute a fully invincible backdash that slows down time for a short period, helping fighters better plan their counter attacks


And in addition to the V-Shift, also free today is a new stage called the Grid Alternative, “as well as an updated battle balance for all playable characters, adding even more gameplay depth and enhancements to the game’s combat system.”
