Forums - Gaming Discussion - 4 new characters announced for Street Fighter V

And one more to be announced in the future.



Most interesting perhaps is Akira Kazama from Rival Schools. That's an old fighting game I'm sure a lot of players are happy to see get some love again.

Aside from her I'm interested in Rose, who was my main in SF4.
New battle mechanics also sounds interesting.

Nice Akira is coming! Man I miss Rival Schools, such an awesome fighting game back then.

Wonder when Capcom will release SF6.

Iirc there was a sign pointing to it happening in early 2021, because Capcom announced that the winner of Capcom Cup 2020 won't automatically qualify for it 2021. The last time this happened was in the transition year from SF4 to SF5, where Kazunoko won Capcom Cup for SF4, but next year they no longer had SF4 on the Pro Tour (which starts early in the year), only SF5. And his win in SF4 didn't qualify him for a SF5 finals for obvious reasons.

But looking at their roadmap for SFV, it's hard to imagine they would launch SF6 during all of this.
So maybe they'll rescind that previous announcement about the winner of 2020 not qualifying for 2021 (If there even will be a Capcom Cup this year in any capacity) and if they had plans for SF6 in early 2021, instead push that to next year.



Woo, love Rival Schools. Also surprised it took so long to add Dan. So they are still adding characters even after releasing Championship Edition? I guess there will be another ultimate release eventually.

Agreed, I would think it'd be better to push SF6 to at least 2022.  Seems like they're not quite done with SF5 anyways.



Oro being in this makes me want to actually get the game. Just a question of whether I want to buy a PS+ subscription since I don't really play any other multiplayer games on PS4.



Meanwhile, Makoto is crying in a corner.



Rival Schools character? When is the Star Gladiator character coming?



Hmm, pie.

What about SF6 tho xP
