Not just one, not just two, but the entire character roster for Street Fighter V‘s 3rd season was just announced at Capcom Cup 2017! Starting on January 16th — the launch date for Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition — the characters joining the roster are:
By the way the characters are ordered in the Season 3 Character Pass artwork, the characters are set to arrive in that order, with the Muay Thai king Sagat finishing off Season 3. While Falke and G are the only new characters in this upcoming season, every returning fighter has received a costume change: Sakura has changed out of her school uniform since graduation, Blanka has grown out his ginger mane, Cody’s ditched the prison outfit and is sporting a swish new suit, while Sagat is wrapped up in a traveler’s cape. As for Falke and G, Falke looks to be one of Ed’s fellow Shadaloo cadets while G looks like Abraham Lincoln, if he ran a magic-themed disco during the ’70s.
As Sakura is the first character in this pack, Capcom have also released her character trailer. Labelled “The Exuberant Youth”, this version of Sakura works part-time in an arcade as she looks forward to her future. Expect a full V-Skill and V-Trigger breakdown from Capcom in the next few days but based on the trailer, Sakura’s juggling skills have only gotten better since she left school. Sakura also comes with her own stage, which has players fighting in her yard while her younger brother plays video games in the background. I wonder if he’s playing Street Fighter too…
