Previously, the SFV Dev Team spoke about how the positive reception of both Season 4 and the Champion Edition inspired the push for a fifth and final season. Street Fighter V, Capcom promised, would be receiving five new characters — which would bring the total roster count to 45 — and three exciting new stages.
Prominent players, such as EVO Champion Seonwoo “Infiltration” Lee and Street Fighter legend Daigo Umehara, have already begun speculating on which characters they’d like to see in the upcoming expansion.
