Don’t expect the next Street Fighter V character reveal for a few months

Also here’s a recap

Street Fighter V was one of my favorite games at TGS, and Laura Matsuda is looking like a really fun character to play based on her footage — all in all, the months before launch have been kind to Capcom. But after a long string of announcements at various events, it seems as if the publisher is going to rest a bit.

Series producer Yoshinori Ono noted that the next new reveal will come “within the next two months,” which falls in line with the Capcom Cup dates. Note that there’s two characters left to be revealed for launch — the aforementioned newcomer, and a returning fighter — with more characters coming later as DLC.

You’ll find a recap of everyone announced so far below. Again, I’m ready to try Rashid out as soon as possible.
