Street Fighter V will have Akuma and five new characters for season 2

Season two will release sometime in 2017 and will feature Akuma and five completely brand new fighters. While still unconfirmed, there have been guesses on who the characters are by comparing their silhouettes to the CFN (Capcom Fighting Network) profile page.

So far the names include Helen (who appears in the SFV Cinematic Story), Geki or Goutetsu (Gouken and Akuma’s master), Delta Red member Keith Wolfman or Matthew McCoy, Satsuki (one of M. Bison’s Dolls) and Rook (who was originally set to star in the canceled Capcom Fighting All-Stars fighting game).

It’s interesting to see Capcom is going the route of adding five new characters rather than a mix of fan favorites and new characters. It shouldn’t be long before we start seeing more about these new characters, especially since most of them should be out by Evo 2017.
