Street Fighter V: Champion Edition DLC characters Dan Hibiki, Rose, Oro, and Akira Kazama

Capcom announced Street Fighter V: Champion Edition downloadable content characters Dan Hibiki, Rose, Oro, and Akira Kazama from Rival Schools during its “Street Fighter V: Champion Edition Summer Update” live stream.

The characters make up four of the five planned additional fighters for Street Fighter V: Champion Edition‘s fifth and final season. The final character will launch in fall 2021 and be announced at a later date.

Here is a look at each character:

Dan Hibiki (Winter 2020)

A mainstay from the Street Fighter Alpha series and last appearing in Street Fighter IV, Dan Hibiki will be bringing his (over) confidence and iconic “Taunt” to Street Fighter V. A training partner of Ryu and Ken, Dan considers himself well-equipped to “school” other players with his unique Saikyo-ryu (“Strongest Style”) fighting style.

Rose (Spring 2021)

Rose is a fortune telling fan-favorite character who also previously starred in the Alpha series and Street Fighter IV. Using her tarot cards, Rose will arrive armed with a variety of unique special moves and plans to channel all of her Soul Power energy into Street Fighter V.

Oro (Summer 2021)

Last appearing in Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike, Oro is an ancient martial arts master who exists as an immortal hermit. He restricts one of his arms from use in order to give his opponents an advantage, but that won’t stop Oro from being one of the most well-trained and powerful fighters in Street Fighter V.

Akira Kazama (Summer 2021)

As an acquaintance of Sakura, Akira has previous ties to the Street Fighter universe and is gearing up to bring her biker style look and clever gimmicks to Street Fighter V.
