Capcom has announced that Street Fighter 5 will utilise Epic's Unreal Engine 4.

"Our goal with the next generation of Street Fighter is to take our beloved fighting game franchise and bring it to our fans in the best way possible," said Capcom producer Bochan Kim.

"In order to fully deliver on that promise, we know we have to incorporate the latest and greatest technology available, which is why we partnered with Epic Games to power Street Fighter V using Unreal Engine 4."

Street Fighter 5 will be the first entry in the series to use Unreal Engine. As for Unreal Engine 4, this will mark the second, officially announced use of the new engine in a fighting game, following the Tekken 7 announcement.

Take a look at how good looking it is.

Thanks, Gamasutra.
