Street Fighter V is a 2D fighting game and the first title in the Street Fighter series to be released on the PlayStation 4. The game includes four new characters: the Aztec-like warrior Necalli, the Middle Easterner who can manipulate wind named Rashid, the Brazillian fighter Laura Matsuda, , and the new member of the Shadaloo Grand Masters named F.A.N.G. Another new feature includes the V-Gague, which builds through the player receiving attacks, allowing to perform new techniques such as the V-Skills special attacks, V-Reversals counter moves, or the V-Triggers unique abilities.
Taking place between the events of Street Fighter IV and Street Fighter III, Charlie Nash has awakened in a tomb following his sacrifice in stopping M. Bison. He is instructed to stop the Shadaloo organization from their heinous plot of siphoning energy in order to grant invincibility.
Street Fighter V received mainly positive reviews with an average score of 76%, praised for its gameplay and graphics, though criticized for its online instability, and lack of single-player and overall content.
Street Fighter V arguably possesses the most difficult and time-consuming Platinum in the series thus far. While a good chunk of the trophies are easy enough to unlock, you will need to grind for XP, grind for 1 million FM, complete Survival Mode on Hell difficulty, win at least 300 ranked online games, and reach the top 10% in online League Ranking. This is a Platinum only handed out to the Street Fighter masters, though certainly one to be proud of.
Though it's possible to unlock the Platinum in just under 80 hours, most average players will require far more time.
The game doesn't require much of a roadmap, since there is so much to do and you can start anywhere. However, if you wish to take the easier to more difficult path, you can probably start by going through the Story Mode. You'll unlock The 16 Trials trophy for completing each of the 16 character stories, while unlocking Mastering The Basics, Your Story Starts Here, One Step Forward, Lucky We Met, Quantity Over Quality, and No Rest For The Wicked trophies naturally along the way.
There are also a few other easy trophies you can knock out during your story mode process, such as setting a character as your favorite for the Playing Favorites trophy, choosing a title for all In A Name, collect 30 replays for Failing To Prepare Is Preparing To Fail, add 30 favorites in the Capcom Fighting Network for both the Not-So-Secret Admirer and Global Network trophies, and practice in Training Mode for 30 minutes for Bodybuilding Is Life.
After that, it's time for things to get serious. Head into Survival Mode, where you'll need to complete 30 fights one after the other on Normal difficulty, complete 50 fights with a single health on Hard difficulty, and complete 100 fights with a single health on Hell difficulty. This is where you'll need some serious skills. Also, completing survival runs will unlock colors for your outfit, which will also unlock The Outfit Is The Highlight Of Battle trophy.
If you can complete that, you should be ready for Online Mode. Your ultimate goal is unlocking the Let's Fight Someone Strong trophy for getting into the Gold League by reaching 4,000 LP. This can only be done on ranked matches, and means you'll need to win far more matches than lose. Getting into the Gold League roughly means reaching the top 10%. On this route, you should unlock a number of online trophies naturally, such as for winning 100 and 300 ranked matches.
After all that, it's just a matter of grinding to mop-up those last few trophies you may still be missing. Be sure to check out the Street Fighter V trophy guide links under our Links page to see what you still need and their requirements.
