E. Honda, Lucia and Poison officially announced for Street Fighter V

Street Fighter V E Honda Lucia Poison

Street Fighter V is still continuing on asĀ Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition, with new DLC fighters coming out on the horizon. E. Hondas, Lucia and Poison were characters who were going to be announced during EVO 2019 in Las Vegas, but they were leaked. Capcom decided to release the gameplay trailer for the three characters yesterday instead, which makes the roster a total of 38 warriors.

E. Honda is one of the eight original World Warriors in Street Fighter 2, and the gameplay trailer pays homage to the classic game’s character select screen. As the cursor highlights the different characters, the graphics for the avatar turn from old school to new school. The last one to get selected is E. Honda. But before the cursor could switch from the old graphics to the new one, E. Honda interrupts, and we are then shown his gameplay footage.

Next up is Lucia, a detective for the Metro City Police Department and a playable character from Final Fight 3, and she’s making her debut in the Street Fighter games. Lastly, Poison returns with her classic and revealing outfit.

E. Honda, Lucia, and Poison will be available on August 4, 2019, for the PlayStation 4 and Steam. Each character retails for $5.99 or 100,000 Fight Money. You can get all three with the “Summer 2019 Character Bundle” for $14.00. The bundle also includes each character’s Battle Costume and Default Colors 3-10. E. Honda’s bathhouse stage, “Honda Sento,” will be available on August 4th with a modern take.
