We’re Getting Five New Street Fighter 5 Characters & Three Stages

According to Capcom’s latest developer update, Street Fighter V: Champion Edition will be getting new characters, stages, and costumes. Definitely more of the latter, if the male-focused fanbase is of any indication. *coughChunLiCammycough*

Street Fighter V will be seeing a final season; players can expect five new characters and three new stages. Because of numbering schemes and all.

“Due to the positive reception to Season 4 and Champion Edition, we are planning to do a final Season ‘V’, which will add ‘V’ more fighters to the roster. Three new stages are also being planned.”

Capcom will share more info about the new content “this summer”. In addition, the company will be hosting a costume contest that will allow fans to submit their own designs for any of the 40 characters on the roster. You can send your designs from now until 21st July; two winners will be chosen for this. Guidelines are all here.

The company also revealed more costume concept art from the development team. There’s a good chance these will be available as paid DLC in the final season.

It’ll be a while until Capcom can count to 6, but hopefully, we’ll be getting some fan favourites appearing in the game’s final season like Makoto (who is number 2 on a Capcom character popularity poll two years ago), Q, Dudley, Skullomania (?), Fei Long, Guy, and Oro. Personally, I wouldn’t mind seeing Rose, Maki (from CvS2), Sean with SF3 Second Impact tricks, and Garuda popping up sometime.
