Also announced the release dates of Oro and Akira
Announced last night during the Street Fighter V Summer Update 2021 digital program, the fifth character of Street Fighter V Season 5 - and final character to be added to the game - was revealed through a short gameplay video. Luke, an entirely new character who will have a promising and bright future ahead of him in Street Fighter, will join the illustrious roster when released at November 2021.
During the digital event, information was also shared about the wandering hermit Oro, Akira Kazama - the Rival School biker - and the new scenario arriving in Street Fighter V on August 16.
After a long and distant journey, Gold the wandering hermit from the Street Fighter III series is returning to Street Fighter V ready to share his wits and wisdom with anyone interested. Wearing a modest purple robe and a brown rope belt, Gold passes his pet turtle between his right and left hands, to maintain a balanced fighting style and to challenge himself. Gold retains many of his original moves and will have a handful of new ones for Street Fighter V, making him an immensely powerful fighter that players will need to master.
In his Street Fighter debut, Akira kazama began his fighting game career in the Capcom series Rival Schools, which began in 1997. In Street Fighter V, Akira wears her signature black biker outfit and prides herself on being a strong, quiet girl. That said, her style of play speaks volumes when she's at close range, but she's also gifted with some long-range moves that won't leave her opponents indifferent. With loads of new tricks in her motorcycle gloves, Akira has prepared herself and will be ready to teach anyone who crosses her path a lesson.
In addition to the playable character Akira, “Rival Riverside” is a new Street Fighter V scenario that has been reimagined from Akira's Rival School period. Set at sunset, near a familiar river and Akira High School, this scenario includes several familiar faces from the past.
Gold, Akira and Luke can be purchased via the Street Fighter V Character Pass or Premium Pass. Gold, Akira and Akira's new “Rival Riverside” scenario will be available on August 16. Luke, the brand new character just announced coming to Street Fighter V, will be available in November 2021. All additional characters, including the three endings, can also be purchased separately for cash or 100,000 Fight Money and the extra scenarios can be purchased through cash or 70,000 Fight Money.
