You've waited years to get your hands on Street Fighter 5, it finally launches and you head online to show everyone else who's the best. Sadly, many of you did this overnight to find the game's servers fall down under the stress.

The game's creator Yoshinori Ono has taken to Twitter this morning to apologise for the launch issues.

Thankfully things appear to be up and running now as many players across Europe head to stores to pick up the game.
