Today, during a "Summer Update" livestream, Capcom revealed four new characters that will come to Street Fighter V: Champions Edition.
That's an interesting list of characters.
Yes game has been getting amazing support since reveal. The release was a bit chaotic with many modes missing.
Not coming back to SFV until Crimson Viper is playable
Yeah it's strange, all the other characters were chosen as they were highly requested yet Viper was just as requested if not more so than Oro. Definitely feels like a huge loss, same with no Makoto but that's the problem with games like SF, everyone wants to see returning characters yet they can only have so many.
Could they still appear? Or is this the last set of DLC?
In the stream Kenny Omega mentioned it was the last season. This season wasn't supposed to even happen either but after how well Champion's Edition did, Capcom gave it the okay. There may be further DLC though, unless they have a new fighting game due out in 2022, they will likely do more Capcom Cup bundles but the mystery character unveiling at Capcom Cup next year will likely be the last.
My favorite fighting game of this generation. It’s really cool, they still adding new characters to it.
I am hype to get a revamped ORO, loved him 3rd strike and SFV did AMAZING work with each character making them feel unique and great tools.
SFV was one of the most disappointing titles I've played.
Could you elaborate ? Why ?
He dont know why, probably just suck at the game.
How about changing how your performs signatures move for old favorites characters like Chun-li and Vega :). Would you love it if they changed Ryu to a charge guy like Guile?
@Pete Chun-li and Vega are still charge characters and always have been.
i would agree with you at launch but not anymore
I skipped it on launch for obvious reasons I know it's improved but it's not a big upgrade over sf4 might install it again soon to check for improvements.
its much more playable now, thats for sure, and the content is rather intimidating. will see you in the streets warrior!
This is a disgrace. Dan.... the 1st character?? In the WINTER. Capcom can kiss it
Is it possible to buy base SFV and then just buy Akira when she comes out? I got rival schools love but I don't feel like buying championship edition...
I imagine they'll release a complete edition for PS5 next year, so personally I'd hold out for that release ...
Base SFV is 7.99 on Canadian PSN...I couldn't resist.
Yes you can
Confirmed. And you can actually still buy characters ,stages and costumes using in game points. I had enough points for 3 characters from when I played it at launch. Perfect!!
They changed the system or something I think. I would say the old point system doesn't work.
The point system is still the same. I bought Sakura yesterday using fight money.
yes you can, and better yet you can get the in game currency (fight money) relatively easy enough to be able to "buy" 1-2 characters if needed without spending more money
Finally something rival schools!!! Akira just makes sense in SF
It was cool presentation. I hope that is the standard for sf moving forward.
Wish they'd add Makoto
great list of characters pity about the road map taking so long, how long will people be playing this with net gen just around the corner?
Akira from RS was bae. Odd that they'd choose her and not also add Batsu at least, he'd fit in super easily.
