Rose, Dan, Oro, and Rival Schools' Akira are headed to Street Fighter V: Champion Edition


United by Fate

Capcom - with an assist from AEW star Kenny Omega - has revealed a brand new batch of content headed to Street Fighter V: Champion Edition, in what will be the competitive fighting game's fifth - and reportedly final - season.

In announcements made during today's Summer Update live stream, Season V will see SFV's 40-strong roster joined by Street Fighter III's bizarre hermit Oro, Street Fighter Zero doofus Dan Hibiki and, my long-time "main," the glamourous fortune-teller Rose. Rounding out this quartet, from the awesome Rival Schools, is badass biker gal Akira Kazama. A fifth and final character will be revealed at a later date.

Courtesy of PlayStation Blog, here's some work-in-progress footage of Dan in action.

As you can see from the schedule below, the new characters will be parsed out as DLC downloads across the remainder of 2020 and into 2021. Also of note are the inclusion of new stages, battle mechanics, balance changes and, of course, a wardrobe of new costumes.

Also announced during the stream, The Street Fighter League will be entering its third season, opening up the borders to allow international competition. Beginning in early 2021, The Street Fighter League will see the best in the world battling it out, with the finals taking place at the 2021 Capcom Cup.

Street Fighter V: Champion Edition
is available now on PS4 and PC. As of today, players can check out the fighter and its entire roster, free-of-charge, for the next fortnight.
