Capcom is rolling out its final set of new characters with the Street Fighter V summer update. At this point it seems Capcom has added every major and minor character to Street Fighter V while introducing a few new additions as well.
The new addition is Luke while Oro, from Street Fighter III, and Akira, from Rival Schools, are also joining the fray.
Based off the brief gameplay video that was shown, Luke is a fighter that specializes in moving fast and hitting hard, so opponents will need to be on high alert and brace for impact. More backstory information and gameplay details will be shared leading up to Luke’s November 2021 release.
After a long journey away, Oro the wandering hermit from the Street Fighter III series is returning ready to share his wit and wisdom with anyone who’s interested.
Wearing a modest purple robe and brown rope belt, Oro swaps his pet turtle between his right and left hands as a way to challenge himself and maintain a balanced fighting style. Oro retains many of his original moves and adds a handful of new ones, making him an immensely powerful fighter for players to master.

Making her highly-anticipated Street Fighter debut, Akira Kazama began her fighting game career in the Rival Schools series, which began in 1997. Akira dons her trademark black biker gear and prides herself on being the strong, silent type.
That said, her playstyle speaks volumes when she’s at close range, but she’s also equipped with some long-distance moves that will leave her opponents thinking twice about straying too far. With plenty of new tricks up her biker gloves, Akira has been studying up and will be ready to school anyone who crosses her path.
Players will also be able to take the fight to a new stage, Rival Riverside, inspired by Rival Schools.
Set near a familiar river and Akira’s high school, this stage takes place during sunset and includes several familiar faces from back in the day.
As usual, you can get Oro, Akira, and Luke via the Street Fighter V Season 5 Character Pass or Premium Pass. You can get Oso, Akira and Rival Riverside on Aug. 16. Luke will arrive in November. You can buy the characters for $5.99 or 100,000 Fight Money, Rival Riverside is available for $3.99 or 70,000 Fight Money.
