Street Fighter V: Champion Edition Season V is looking stacked already. Capcom recently announced four of the five planned DLC characters for the season, with the final character to be revealed at a later date. So far, the new additions are Dan Hibiki, Rose, Oro, and Akira Kazama, the latter of which hails from the excellent 1997 fighter Rival Schools: United by Fate


Dan, who got his goofy, overconfident start in the Street Fighter Alpha series, is set for Winter 2020.
