Capcom announced today that Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition will be getting three new DLC characters on August 4, 2019 during the EVO 2019 tournament. Many assumed these characters were going to be announced and released this weekend, but the game page on Steam let the cat out of the bag early, so Capcom went ahead and just released not one, but four trailers showcasing gameplay for E. Honda, Lucia, and Poison.
That page on Steam has since been removed, but in a nutshell, it announced that E. Honda, Final Fight‘s Poison and Lucia will all be joining the cast of Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition characters, complete with different costumes available in the store. Many have requested Capcom add E. Honda ever since Street Fighter V was released back in 2016, and now, that request has been granted.
Poison is a returning character for the Street Fighter universe, while Lucia is making her debut in the fighting game series. For those who don’t know, Lucia first appeared in Final Fight 3 and is a detective in the Metro City SCU (Special Crimes Unit). Her standard outfit consists of a sporty police uniform, brown vest, fingerless gloves, denim shorts, and tennis shoes.
