Capcom may add 'full-fledged story modes' to fighting games
Fighting games are a largely mutliplayer affair — they're not often made with a single-player focus in mind. However, fans are pressuring Capcom for more valuable story-based campaigns in titles like Street Fighter.
The company's senior vice president Christian Svensson wrote today in a response, "The strategic marketing group here has for quite a while been pushing for our fighting franchises to have more and better single-player content, of which full-fledged story modes are one component.
"How and when those requirements manifest in our future roadmap, I'm not prepared to speak about at this time."
That's not a definite answer, but at least Capcom is listening. It's hard to say whether story will ever matter in a genre where gameplay has most always been king.
