Capcom have announced the release date for DLC character Dan Hibiki for Street Fighter V: Champion Edition.
As previously reported, Dan is well known as the series gag-character, being a failed martial artist turned dubious martial arts teacher. director Takayuki Nakayama, and producer Shuhei Matsumoto hinted at his famous “Taunt” being a mechanic he will use in battle.
The DLC character was due to be released this Winter in the game’s fifth and last content season. Now, Matsumoto took to the game’s official Twitter account in a video post, to reveal the character would be released in February 2021.
While thanking years for the five years of support for the game, Matsumoto cited that the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic had caused difficulty during development, as the team adjusted to the new conditions. As noted by Matsumoto, the new release date is still within Winter, but his phrasing suggests this was later than what the team had initially planned.
