Street Fighter V continues to stack its roster after the latest character reveals features three familiar faces returning to rack up more K.Os.
The Steam page for the title had a video showing Lucia, E. Honda, and Poison are coming to the PC and PS4 versions. This Street Fighter V trailer was probably was meant for a later release at EVO this week, but fans get this early thanks to some butterfingers.
The characters are scheduled to be released this Sunday on the 4th. This is fitting as the amount of E. Honda thousand hand spam coming in everyone’s future are on sinful levels. The trailer shows E. Honda fighting in a reimagined stage of his Street Fighter 2 stage and more.
Street Fighter V likely isn’t the last fighter appearing at EVO this weekend to drop a new trailer. Tekken 7, Mortal Kombat 11, and more titles will be featured at the tournament as well. Although most of the other companies are zipped up not letting anything leak, anything can still happen.
Back Again for The First Time
Lucia and Poison originally debuted in the Final Fight (FF) series before making their way over the Street Fighter (SF). Poison appeared in the original 1989 FF while Lucia came later from the third in 1995. E. Honda is an SF2 original, marking the last of that cast to be added into Street Fighter V.
There are going to be three to four different costumes available for the new characters upon release. However, the stage and some costumes are not guaranteed to come with the 2019 Summer bundle.
