Kelly Tan, 25, an artist with Streamlines’ 2D team says she helped with modelling, texturing and colouring the alternate costumes and stages that would become available as DLC (downloadable content). 

“The Street Fighter franchise is culturally significant. It’s very well known and loved even among people who don’t play the game. It was even featured in Disney’s animated movie – Wreck-It Ralph,” says Tan.  

“A lot of us feel honoured to be able to handle this intellectual property.” 

MDeC director of creative multimedia division Hasnul Hadi Samsudin who was at the event says Streamline is just one of the growing number of international studios establishing their campuses in Malaysia for games development.

“Triple-A titles being made in Malaysia is fast becoming the norm and Street Fighter V is an excellent testament to the level of capability and commitment our country has to offer in terms of talent pool,” says Hasnul.

“As we push Malaysia to become a hub for games development in Southeast Asia, we will get even more support from the education sector.”

Street Fighter V will feature fan favourites such as Ryu, Ken, Chun-Li and M. Bison, as well as all-new characters such as Necalli, Rashid and Laura for a total of 16 playable characters at launch.

Six additional characters will be available as DLC along with new story missions and costumes.

Baier says the studio is already working on another triple-A title with Capcom but declined to reveal more.
