Capcom announced that the fifth character for Season 5 of Street Fighter V will be Luke, to launch in November 2021.
The developer showed off gameplay of Luke in action, who is said to have a future in the series. Revealed by Street Fighter V Director Takayuki Nakayama and Producer Shuhei Matsumoto during Summer Update 2021, Luke is the fifth character for Season 5 and marks the final fighter added to Street Fighter V, bringing the total roster to 45.
The developer is hoping this expands the world of the series and provides fans a glimpse of the future. In the brief video shown, Luke specializes in moving fast and hitting hard. Additional backstory for the character will be revealed at a later date.
Also, Oro and Akira Kazama will be added to the roster for PlayStation and PC on August 16, 2021. Oro the wandering hermit from the Street Fighter III series is returning in Street Fighter V ready to share his wit and wisdom with anyone who’s interested. Wearing a modest purple robe and brown rope belt, Oro swaps his pet turtle between his right and left hands as a way to challenge himself and maintain a balanced fighting style. The character will retain his original moves with a few new ones.
Akira Kazama began her fighting game career in the Rival Schools series, which began in 1997. In Street Fighter V, Akira dons her trademark black biker gear and prides herself on being the strong, silent type.
