E. Honda, Poison, and Lucia confirmed for Street Fighter 5

After accidentally leaking the news on Steam, Capcom has now confirmed what we already knew; E. Honda, Lucia, and Poison will be making their way to Street Fighter 5’s roster in just a few days time.

The three new additions will be made available on Sunday 4th August, the same day as the Street Fighter 5 Grand Finals at EVO 2019. The three characters will be available to purchase individually at first for $5.99 USD, with a Summer 2019 Character Bundle due to be released the following day on Monday 5th August. This character bundle will include different battle costumes for each fighter and will cost $14.99.

Check out the gameplay trailers for each of the three new characters below:

E. Honda made his debut in the Street Fighter series in Street Fighter 2: The World Warriors. His appearance in Street Fighter 5 holds true to that original, with the bath house stage from Street Fighter 2 also heading to Street Fighter 5 as DLC in the near future.

Poison and Lucia will both join the roster from Final Fight. Poison appeared in the original Final Fight as an enemy, with Lucia being a playable character in Final Fight 3 on the Super NES.

Glen, or Gunna as he likes to refer to himself, is a lifelong gamer and slightly above average card player. When not on Hearthstone, you can normally find him racing ahead of his friends in games that feature loot drops. He's just not very good without the best gear...
