Street Fighter V Will Have 4 New Fighters And A "Unique Flavor"

If you're a fighting fan, you should be impressed with the roster for the upcoming Street Fighter V.

During this week's GameStop Expo, Street Fighter brand director Matt Dahlgren confirmed that the latest entry would see three more brand new characters.

All told, the game will boast 16 characters when it first hits store shelves; 8 are classic fighters you should recognize, 4 made an appearance in previous titles but aren't exactly well-known (like the recently revealed Rainbow Mika), and the last 4 are indeed brand new. We've seen one already - the "animalistic" Necalli - and the next three will be announced in the coming months.

Capcom also plans to release characters after the launch as DLC. As you might expect, such internal discussions can be quite energetic, as Dahlgren said:

"The roster discussion is probably the most intense one internally before the game comes out. The end result is really going to be a roster that's unlike Street Fighter 4. It's got its own unique flavor to it. And if your character didn't make it in now, we are going to be revealing post-launch characters."

Street Fighter V will release for PlayStation 4 and PC in the spring.

This is another D1P!
Next year is already looking great. That's coming off of one incredible 2015 year of gaming too.
