A new blog post by Capcom has stated that the newest character will becoming out at the end of February.The post goes on to say, “Stay tuned for more details next week regarding the newest character”.
While we still have no certain idea what the new character could be, it is still exciting to get a new character to the franchise.
It is not exactly clear if Capcom will be releasing the character at the same time as their announced event detailed below.
But there will certainly be some interesting matches to watch, like the rematch between NuckleDu and Ricki Ortiz who fought in the grand finals of the Capcom Cup in 2016. The event will be streamed on Twitch by capcom fighters for everyone who cannot attend.
Another interesting note is that Capcom decided to wait 2 months in between this new character and Akuma, the first DLC character of Season 2. While not certain, this might be the pattern that Capcom follows for the remaining 4 DLC characters expected to debut in 2017.
What type of character do you think will be joining the Street Fighter Universe in the next month? Sound off below.
