Capcom has announced the addition of new characters to Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition Season 5. The company has revealed the details of the game’s summer update, which gives us the first tangible information about Season 5 content. However, we must warn players that it will drag on for several years.
New characters will be Dan, Rose, Oro, and Akira from Rival Schools.
The first one to be expected in December 2020 will be Dan. The players have already been shown his several hits, including a special fireball. This character will be added to the game along with the new Capcom Pro Tour 2021 expansion, as well as new costumes. Probably, after being added to the game, it will become available for professional gamers to participate in various street fighter tournaments.
Also during the presentation of the new patch, the character Rose was shown too and the fighter Oro was announced, who became the third new character in Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition Season 5. Unique strikes were developed for Oro, but they will probably be very difficult to put into practice. He is expected in the summer of 2021.
A little earlier, in the spring of 2021, they are going to add Rose to the game. They also want to add her to the game along with a new stage scene and a set of three costumes.
Who to add as the 4th new character in Capcom was not immediately decided. In the end, after considering several characters, it was decided to add Akira from Rival Schools. She was armed with “unique Rival Schools tricks”. She, together with Oro Street Fighter 3 and Akira Kazama’s new scene, is expected in the summer of 2021.
‘It’s been over four years since the release of this title, but we hope you’ll continue enjoying it for a bit longer as we strive to put in our best effort to deliver for our fans. We are working diligently on the characters and other content’, – told about the new update Shuhei Matsumoto, the producer of Street Fighter V and Takayuki Nakayama, director of this game.
The final character of Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition Season 5 was not announced during the broadcast. The fifth season will run until autumn 2021. It is then that they want to add the 5th new character to the game.
A new CPT 2022 stage will be added at this time, and we’ll also see a set of three new CPT 2022 costumes simultaneously.
In addition to new characters and content, Capcom has confirmed that Street Fighter 5 will feature completely new combat mechanics. It will be added in winter 2020 along with Dan and a new balance update that will not be final. Another balance changes are planned after the release of the 5th character by the end of 2021.
