Capcom has announced the characters who will appear in Street Fighter 5 for its fifth and final season of the game. In case you didn’t see the headline, it’s Dan…
…and Rival School’s Akira. The last one’s quite a surprise for many of us.
There’s also a fifth and final character, but the team will be saving that announcement on a later date. Due to COVID-19, production on new content has been slow on Capcom’s side, so these characters will only start rolling out later on Winter 2020. Here’s a breakdown of Street Fighter 5’s Season V roadmap.
- New character: Dan
- New Stage: Capcom Pro Tour 2021 stage
- New costumes: Sporty x3, Nostalgia, CPT 2021 x2, Fan Design x2
- New battle mechanic
- New battle balance
- New character: Rose
- New stage: Rose stage
- New costume: Professional Costumes
- New characters: Oro, Akira Kazama
- New Stage: Akira
- New character: ???
- New Stage: CPT 2022
- New costume: CPT 2022 x3
Two Alpha characters, one SFIII character, and a Capcom universe character from a long-forgotten fighting game. Don’t that beat all?
