Capcom reveals Street Fighter V Summer Update characters and free trial

Street Fighter V is the fighting game that never stops giving, isn’t it? Long after most fighting games have run through their cycle, Capcom keeps cranking out updates that add so many more reasons to return to the game. Capcom revealed its Summer Update and as you’d expect it’s got some returning characters from previous Street Fighter games as well as a surprise addition from another fighting series.

And best of all for newcomers, Capcom has a free trial going on right now so you can experience all of the fun with the seemingly endless slew of characters now.

You can check out a video with all of the next season’s breakdowns here:

 

 

Dan
A mainstay from the Street Fighter Alpha series and last appearing in Street Fighter IV, Dan Hibiki will be bringing his (over) confidence and iconic “Taunt” to Street Fighter V. A training partner of Ryu and Ken, Dan considers himself well-equipped to “school” other players with his unique Saikyo-ryu (“Strongest Style”) fighting style. Release timing: Winter 2020.

Rose_SFVSU

Rose
Rose is a fortune telling fan-favorite character who also previously starred in the Alpha series and Street Fighter IV. Using her tarot cards, Rose will arrive armed with a variety of unique special moves and plans to channel all of her Soul Power energy into Street Fighter V. Release timing: Spring 2021

Oro_SFVSU

Oro
Last appearing in Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike, Oro is an ancient martial arts master who exists as an immortal hermit. He restricts one of his arms from use in order to give his opponents an advantage, but that won’t stop Oro from being one of the most well-trained and powerful fighters in Street Fighter V. Release timing: Summer 2021

Akira_SFVSU

Akira
First introduced in Capcom’s 1997 fighting game Rival Schools: United by Fate, Akira Kazama is preparing to make her Street Fighter debut. As an acquaintance of Sakura, Akira has previous ties to the Street Fighter universe and is gearing up to bring her biker style look and clever gimmicks to Street Fighter V. Release timing: Summer 2021

Final Character (TBA)
Release timing: Fall 2021

In addition to these five new characters coming to Street Fighter V: Champion Edition, over 30 new costumes and four new stages are also being planned, including a Rose stage (Spring 2021), Akira stage (Summer 2021) and two new Capcom Pro Tour stages arriving in Winter 2020 and Fall 2021. A new battle mechanic and new battle balance adjustments will be available in Winter 2020 as free updates to all players, adding even more gameplay enhancements and depth to the game’s combat system.
