Capcom have announced the upcoming Street Fighter V Champion Edition Winter update will include information on DLC characters Dan Hibiki and Rose.
Both characters were revealed in August 2020, along with Oro, Akira Kazama, and a fifth as-of-yet unknown character. As detailed on Twitter, the upcoming livestream will reveal more information on Dan, details on a new gameplay mechanic, eSports news, special guests and more. In addition, Rose will also be discussed.
It is likely we will see new gameplay, along with information on release dates. The Street Fighter V Winter update livestream will premiere February 11th at 9:00 a.m. PT via Twitch.
The Dan Hibiki DLC is set to launch February 2021, and the Rose DLC Spring 2021. Oro and Akira launch Summer 2021, and the unknown character DLC launches Fall 2021. Each DLC character will also include a new stage and numerous costumes for themselves.
The Dan Hibiki and unknown character DLC will feature the Capcom Pro Tour 2021 and 2022 stages, no doubt the main Street Fighter fighting tournament after the cancellation of EVO Online, due to multiple allegations of sexual harassment and abuse made against co-founder and CEO Joey “MrWizard” Cuellar and other prominent members of the fighting game community.
