Street Fighter V March Update Detailed, Alex Revealed

The much anticipated March content update for Street Fighter V has been revealed today which details what to expect in terms of gameplay tweaks and new modes. Challenge mode will be added that teaches players advanced techniques which will make them much more capable in the competitive area. The in-game store will make its debut where players can spend their earned in-game fight money along with real world currency to purchase new characters and costumes for the game. The Battle Lobbies feature receives a much needed upgrade that allows 8 players to duke it out “king of the hill” style with spectating and all. Also, a rematch option has been added that will give online players the ability to start another fight with an online player after the match is over. Gameplay tweaks and bug fixes have been included too.

Alex, a returning character from Street Fighter III, will make his debut in this update as well. This is a hardcore grappling character similar to Zangief and Mika who is a fan favorite. Players can purchase Alex for 100,000 fight money for $5.99 in U.S. currency. Please save yourself some cash and play through the story content in Street Fighter V which gives you more than enough fight money to earn Alex for free. Check out some screenshots of Alex in action below.
