Street Fighter 5 is slated for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox along with a confirmed release date, although Japanese website Sponichi Annex reports that Street Fighter 5 is still years away from being released.
Meanwhile, Street Fighter producer Yoshinori Ono breaks his silence on a certain rumor regarding the “pay-to-win” feature in Street Fighter 5.
