Capcom Adding 6 Characters to Street Fighter V
Today, towards the end of the Capcom Cup in Anaheim, Capcom revealed the next batch of characters that will come to Street Fighter V‘s season 3.
The first is Sakura, who was teased pretty overtly back in November and is the protagonist of a brand new trailer. She will be released on January 16th 2018 and she isn’t a kid anymore. Now she has a definitely more “adult” look, while her old costume is available as an alternate.
But wait, there’s more. During season 3 we’ll also get three beloved returning characters, Blanka, Cody, and Sagat, and 2 new ones, Falke and G. On top of the new character announcement, we also get a video showcasing the epic cinematic opening of the Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition.
In a related Street Fighter news, today we also got the announcement of the Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch.
Street Fighter V is already available for the PlayStation 4 and PC, while the Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition will release for the same platforms on February 16th 2016. Those who already own Street Fighter V will get the updates for free.
