Ain't no thing like me, except me. I am 50% of the awesome people behind this website. I enjoy writing about my deep love for (J)RPG's, fighting games, and Destiny. Really do not like Call of Duty and Battle Royale games. Absolutely love Sushi and Burgers.
Capcom has a long term strategy to support SFV with new content over time, and the in-game currency allows everyone to choose how they get it.
there are two types of currency in Street Fighter V:
- Fight Money: Can only be obtained by playing the game. Can be used to earn new content for free.
- Zenny: Can be purchased with real money, and used to access new content immediately.
So when it comes to post-launch gameplay content, everyone has two choices:
- Accumulate Fight Money through gameplay, and use it to earn gameplay related content, such as new characters, for free.
- Purchase Zenny with real money, in order to gain access to the content immediately.
100 Zenny essentially equals $1. However, Zenny will be sold in several denominations, giving everyone choice and even bonus amounts depending on how much is purchased! Some of the options are listed below:
- 100 Zenny = Purchase for $0.99 / €0.99 / £0.79
- 550 Zenny = Purchase for $4.99/€4.99/£3.99 (receive a 50 Zenny bonus)
- 1200 Zenny = Purchase for $9.99/€9.99/£7.99 (receive a 200 Zenny bonus)
- 4000 Zenny = Purchase for $29.99/ €29.99/£24.99 (receive a 1000 Zenny bonus)
Every post-launch fighter will cost 600 Zenny and will have a premium costume which will cost you 400 Zenny, this would mean each character is worth $9.99/€9.99/£7.99. There’s a season pass available for $29.99/ €29.99/£24.99 which will include every post-launch character and their costumes, or you could just earn enough fight money and you’ll never spend money on these characters.
Street Fighter V will launch on PS4 and PC on February 16, 2016
