Street Fighter V Producer Talks About Photo Mode, Penalties For Quitters

Street Fighter V is finally available in all regions on PlayStation 4 and PC and thousands of players are only now starting to enjoy the game following some server issues which prevented matchmaking from functioning properly. There's still plenty of work to be done on the game, however, and producer Koichi Sugiyama has recently talked about some of the features that might be coming to the game in the future.

In a new interview posted on Japanese website GameSpark, Mr. Sugiyama has been asked about a possible implementation of a Photo Mode. The Street Fighter V producer confirmed that implementing this mode is technically possible, but there are currently no plans for it. The team, however, is always listening to fans' feedback, so they might add the mode in the future if there's enough demand.

Koichi Sugiyama has also talked about one of the current biggest issues of Street Fighter V: lack of penalties for quitters. Mr. Sugiyama stated in the interview that it's difficult to implement a penalty system for quitters, as it's hard to say if the connection has been dropped intentionally or not. A system which will allow players to block any other specific player, though, will be coming in a future update.

In our own Street Fighter V review, we have noted how the game is indeed the series at its best. The game is lacking single player modes, but the actual fighting mechanics are very well done. While Street Fighter V is not as complex as the Street Fighter IV games, there's still plenty to like for both veterans and newcomers.

Street Fighter V is now available in all regions on PC and PlayStation 4.
