Capcom has announced the Capcom Fighters Network (CFN).
According to a post on the PS Blog, the CFN is a community building tool that makes up part of the online infrastructure in Street Fighter V.
While using the CFN, players will be able to see where battles are happening via a heat map, view profiles and match statistics, appoint rivals so you can see what they’re up to, register friends and follow your most-loved players, search replays, send battle invites, and read up to date patch and tournament news.
One of the key features of the CFN Capcom is touting is the ability to really scrutinise player stats. You’ll not only be able to check minor things like Win/Loss records, but finer stuff like how many punches connected versus how many were thrown.
You can expect more details about the CFN in the coming weeks.
Interestingly, this isn’t the first we’ve heard about the CFN. Back in April of this year, we found out Capcom had filed a trademark for an online gaming hub. The name? “Capcom Fighters Network.”
