Three new fighters are being added to Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition‘s character lineup: E. Honda, Lucia, and Poison.
Capcom says that the three new characters will be available starting August 4, boosting the current lineup to an impressive 38 playable characters. In addition, E. Honda’s iconic ‘Honda Sento’ bathhouse stage has been modernized and will also be available on August 4.
All of the DLC characters in Street Fighter V are earnable free of charge through completion of various in-game challenges and receiving earned in-game currency, called Fight Money. For those that can’t wait, in-game content can be obtained instantly using real money. Each of the new characters is available individually for $5.99 or all three as part of the “Summer 2019 Character Bundle” for $14.99.
Here’s a description of each of the characters from Capcom:
Everyone’s favorite street fighting sumo wrestler, E. Honda rounds out the iconic lineup of original World Warriors included in Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition. Honda’s trademark Sumo Headbutt becomes a much more devastating Onigawara, when his potent V-Trigger is activated. Fair but hard-headed, E. Honda insists on keeping things clean, especially when competing on his home turf – the newly remodeled “Honda Sento” bathhouse.
Officer Lucia Morgan, a detective for the Metro City Police Department who first appeared in Final Fight 3, makes her high-kicking Street Fighter debut in SFV: AE. Lucia brings the heat with Burning Fight, a powerful V-Trigger that dramatically enhances all her kick-based special moves.
The whip-wielding Poison makes her return to Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition after her previous appearance in Ultra Street Fighter IV. Final Fight’s leading lashing lady busts out Poison Cocktail, a Molotov-inspired V-Trigger that literally blazes through her opponent’s health.
Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition is only available on PC and PS4. It includes an Arcade mode where you can choose from six different paths themed after classic Street Fighter games. The Steam version of the game is on sale for $19.99 at the Humble Store.
