At the end of last night's Capcom Cup, the Japanese publisher revealed what's in store for season 3 of Street Fighter V. Making her first appearance in Street Fighter Alpha 2, she has now graduated from high school and searches for a deeper meaning of life, all the while continuing to challenge her rival, Karin, and her idol, Ryu. Sakura is also getting a remastered version of her classic stage, Kasugano Residence as well. Returning characters include the previously mentioned Sakura, along with Blanka, Cody, and Sagat. The announcement came as quite a surprise, as Capcom has traditionally revealed one character at a time, instead of the complete lineup for a whole season.
Alongside the Arcade Edition, which arrives on the 16th January, the game's third season will add a total of six new characters to the playable roster. However, like previous "seasons", the season three character pass will be a separate purchase. A couple of new faces are also coming including Falke, one of Bison's Dolls, and the mysterious steampunk looking, top hat wearing G.
First up is fan-favourite Sakura, who comes out on 16th January, the same day as Street Fighter 5: Arcade Edition. Those who buy that will get all six of the revealed characters "and their Battle Costumes and colors" as they are released throughout 2018. Season 1 and 2 characters, however, are not included as part of the update and will continue to be sold separately or unlocked with in-game Fight Money.
