Capcom unveils Street Fighter V Season 3 DLC roster

Tom is probably best known for the 15 years - FIFTEEN YEARS! - he spent at Eurogamer, one of Europe's biggest independent gaming sites. After working his way through the ranks, Tom was Editor-in-Chief over there between 2008 and 2015, before leaving to join Riot Games and work on League of Legends editorial.

These days he writes for a bunch of different places, including AllGamers, where you'll often find him pitching in with news, writing lengthy retro features, and trying to convince us to publish yet more articles about his beloved FIFA Ultimate Team. He can give up any time he wants, it says here.

You can reach Tom through and he's also on Twitter.

Sakura and Sagat are the highlights.

Capcom has announced the full line-up of characters coming to Street Fighter V as part of Season 3 in 2018, starting with Sakura in mid-January.

The other five characters, due out at various points next year, will be Blanka, Falke, Cody, G, and Sagat, with more details nearer the time.

The news came during Capcom Cup 2017, and Capcom released more details on its community blog, including a deep dive on the new SFV-era Sakura, showing her new move (Tengyo Hadoken, where she sends a fireball diagonally through the air), her V-Triggers and Critical Art, and a shot of the Kasugano Residence stage associated with her character.

We also got a look at the cinematic opening of Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition, which is due out January 16 - the same day Sakura goes on sale.

To get Sakura in SFV, you'll need to pick up the Season 3 Character Pass for $29.99, which includes her Battle Costume with colors 3-10 and default costume colors 3-10 unlocked. Holders of the pass then gain access to Blanka, Falke, Cody, G, and Sagat when they arrive.

If you buy the Season 3 Character Pass between January 16 and 31, you'll also get nine costumes: 30th Anniversary costumes for Bison, Guile, Ibuki, and Karin, and Nostalgia Costumes for Alex, Ibuki, Juri, Kolin, and Akuma.
