Eight characters? Could it be true?
A well-known and notable source of fighting game leaks (or at least: rumors), DasVergeben has now stated on reddit that their sources have leaked to them the characters we can expect to see as Season 4 DLC for Street Fighter V — along with some other intriguing claims.
According to these sources, the Season 4 DLC fighters will be (in no particular order):
- C. Viper
- [another unknown newcomer]
Yep, eight characters. “Phantom” refers to F.A.N.G’s apprentice, referenced in the CFN Side Readers story Toxicity. The other new fighter is apparently yet unknown. The leakers claim that two of these eight characters will be free DLC, but which two is unclear.
Thanks to their involvement in the game’s story sections, Oro and C. Viper seem very likely. Necro has been expected too, and Sodom is a recurring candidate — perhaps mainly due to the game’s lore leaning heavily into Metro City/Mad Gear material. The likelihood of Q may hinge heavily on what’s going on with G — which we should see soon. DasVergeben’s sources also indicate that Street Fighter VI is in the early stages of development (but there are no changes to SFV’s projected support timeline).
Keep that salt shaker handy, because you should take a few grains; DasVergeben has been hit-and-miss with claims like these — having revealed some dead-on (or at least very close) leaks in the past, but has not been 100% accurate. So until we get confirmation from Capcom, this is all pretty much just speculation. We’ll see!
