Street Fighter 5 fans who were hoping to see new characters can now find out what is coming to the game in a major leak that has revealed the upcoming fighters.
The official Steam Store page was apparently updated ahead of the announcement that was likely going to be made at Evo fighting tournament. This announcement is for three new fighters that will be added to the game. This includes E. Honda, Poison, and Lucia.
The trailer is still up on Steam and shows the fighters along with their special moves in Street Fighter 5. There will be new stages and costumes as well.
E. Honda will get a new stage called Honda Sento based on the classic Street Fighter 2 stage. He is also getting a story, battle, and nostalgia costume. Lucia will also get her own story, battle, and nostalgia costume in addition to a summer costume. Poison, who is from Final Fight, is also getting a story, battle, nostalgia, and summer costume.
Street Fighter 5 was released as a PS4 console exclusive along with PS4. Sony had an announcement to make during the upcoming Evo so this might be related to it. In any case, it has been leaked early thanks to Steam putting them on the official store page. We have shared a mirror in case the original one is taken down.
E. Honda, Lucia, and Poison will be all available to play in Street Fighter 5 from August 4th. Summer 2019 character bundle will launch on August 5th.
