The 40th character to join the illustrious Street Fighter V: Champion Edition roster has been announced. The new character will be available on February 14, 2020.
Seth, the “King of Chaos” and boss character from Street Fighter IV, takes on a new form. Seth will return as a master move mimicker in Champion Edition.
December’s recently released update offers plenty for players wanting new content. The new update offers Gill, a new stage and new gameplay features to try out. Additionally, an all-new trailer debuted, showcasing more of this robust new version. The new version includes 40 characters, 34 stages and over 200 costumes.
Welcome Back, Seth
The Street Fighter series has always featured memorable bosses, and Seth’s iconic role in Street Fighter IV was no different.
After Seth’s demise at the end of Street Fighter IV part of the intelligence survived. Remnants of Seth’s biological brain have been paired with a new physical form. Always seeking new data from the fiercest fighters in the world, Seth has the ability to steal moves. Seth can then use them against an opponent. Players who go up against Seth should plan accordingly and expect to get a taste of their own medicine.
Oh, and Gill As Well
In December’s update, Gill makes his angelic return and is now ready to bless Champion Edition players with his presence. Leader of the Secret Society and end boss of Street Fighter III, Gill brings his elemental balance to the game. Seth is armed with a wide variety of fire and ice attack options.
Players can acquire Gill for £4.99 or 100,000 Fight Money. Gill’s home base – the “Sun Chase Moon” stage – is also available now for £3.29 or 70,000 Fight Money.
Every character has also acquired all new V-Skills. These new abilities provide added depth to the gameplay system and open up a variety of new strategies.
Additionally, a new battle balance update is available and offers general game improvements and character-specific updates. These new gameplay additions are available now as a free download for all players.
