Any word on which costume is next after Leo? I'm looking forward to getting the Leo costume, maybe Capcom could see their way to remastering/porting Warzard finally.

There's nothing in Blanka's pocket. RIP SFV.
I see a big, monster Blanka in that tweet image.

They didn't announce anything, but datamining we know that with Leo they added placeholders for 10 more crossover characters (each with their own music track) to Extra Battle. So I don't know who are they going to be, but I'd bet they'll add a crossover character after Leo.

In addition to this, we know that someone will get a "classic" costume (not "Nostalgia", leading to think it's going to be a Fighting change costume) and that Shadow Lady (Chun-Li palette swap with some extra move like Shadow Charlie, both from Marvel Super Heroes vs Street Fighter) seems that will be added to the Extra Battle bosses in addition to the already known Shadow, "The master" (Ryu on steroids with new CA) and Shin Bison.

Thank you for keeping hope alive.
You're welcome. Notice that the Blanka in the image is huge, so his pocket should be huge too xDD

P.S.: I'm preparing my Ono costume. Please make sure your Kenzo Tsujimoto cosplay is ready, you're going to be the new CEO of Capcom.

We'll kidnap and impersonate them to anounce that starting tomorrow 5 new characters and 5 new stages will be released each month, that Xbox and Switch ports are coming with crossplay since day one, that we'll include World Tour, Online Training, Tournament and Time Attack modes for Evo, main story and character story modes vol 2, that SFV vanilla is going to be free for everyone permanently starting tomorrow, that we'll select 1000 local SFV tournaments to give them $1000 prize pool to each one, that the arcade version will be released worldwide, that FM rewards will be doubled and maybe something else.

New classic stage announced:

The epic grass stage from the Street Fighter II Animated Movie and Street Fighter Alpha 2.
One of the many stages that X-Kira said while ago that were coming.

SFV is the actual best game. If they sneak a rendition of Alpha 2 theme for this stage I'm going to LI Joe the fuck out.
Compare the music of the trailer with the original one, it doesn't seem to be the same:

Consider also that if I'm not wrong all (edit: non-character specific stages) SFV stages have 2 music tracks, the normal one and the alternative.

Regarding the song of the trailer isn't a version of that one, it's instead main SFA2 theme version:

It would be great to add extra Arcade paths for SFA2 and other games.

It's the same music used for the ending of the Alpha path in arcade mode. I'd like to believe they'll still make an original theme for the stage considering Sakura, Sagat, and Bison's stages got them despite having character themes already.

Oh my days! Looks so good. That’s also a great price.

One of Capcom's best stage themes and stages in general! This is a nice surprise.

This (awesome) official Sagat arrangement to me has always seemed inspired by the remix in SFA2.


The music in the trailer is already in the game btw, it plays during the Alpha ladder in Arcade mode.

Might as well also include the opening fight from the SF2 anime that this stage was based on

You can't get too mad at Sagat though. It was 1994, frame data and tech wasn't readily available yet. I don't think he knew that you can't safe jump Ryu's DP.

But if he held a grudge for Ryu all these years because he thought he was just a crazy masher then he no longer has my sympathy lol.

I don't want to jump into conclusion but they may have updated the engine. UE 4.8 introduced a grass render tool that generate grass in a large landscape.

Temple of Ascension is nowhere near close in grass density.

SFV currently uses 4.7.

Soo...
  • New stage coming March 26th
  • There was also some costume DLC bundle that is time limited and ends somewhere in March, so they may need an update to remove it (and probably to replace it with another one, I bet it may be a Mega Man one)
  • Uniqlo round 1 ads end on April's 1st so maybe they had some update to maybe replace them
I assume they'll put all these things in the same update. They also have that eSport event in Japan where they'll have the arcade version, so that update maybe it''s done during that event.

Odds are good we'll be seeing a new character on 3/26 now?
Well, they didn't change their Facebook or Twitter avatar as a teaser, so I'd say it's difficult to get it now.

But who knows, I assume that if they announce something else at Final Round it may be announced before the finals. Regarding the release, it depends how they want to do it: they may release it after the event is complete, or they may wait until the 26th, that is Tuesday (normal day for PSN game and DLC releases).

Yeah I was gonna say that this stage looks like it’s using upgraded engine features for that grass. Temple of Ascension definitely doesn’t come close so you might be right lol.

I don't want to jump to conclusions, but ps4 pro patch confirmed.
One would hope.
