Street Fighter V Reveals 4 New DLC Characters

Today, Capcom, during a new Street Fighter V: Champion Edition showcase, revealed the latest news about the game, including the newest characters joining the game's roster for Season V, which is rumored to be the last season of the game, though this hasn't been confirmed in any capacity.

As for the new characters, Capcom confirmed the following will be joining the game's increasingly robust roster: Dan, Rose, Oro, and Akira Kazama of Rival Schools fame. Capcom also confirmed it has one more character to announce, but it's saving this announcement for a later date.
