Capcom announced that the roster for Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition is rising to 38 characters with the addition of three new challengers on August 4th: Lucia, Poison, and E. Honda. In addition, E. Honda’s “Honda Sento” bathhouse has been modernized as a new stage and will be released the same day.
Everyone’s favorite street fighting sumo wrestler, E. Honda rounds out the iconic lineup of original World Warriors included in Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition. Honda’s trademark Sumo Headbutt becomes a much more devastating Onigawara, when his potent V-Trigger is activated. Fair but hard-headed, E. Honda insists on keeping things clean, especially when competing on his home turf – the newly remodeled “Honda Sento” bathhouse.
Officer Lucia Morgan, a detective for the Metro City Police Department who first appeared in Final Fight™ 3, makes her high-kicking Street Fighter debut in SFV: AE. Lucia brings the heat with Burning Fight, a powerful V-Trigger that dramatically enhances all her kick-based special moves.
The whip-wielding Poison makes her return to Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition after her previous appearance in Ultra Street Fighter™ IV. Final Fight’s leading lashing lady busts out Poison Cocktail, a Molotov-inspired V-Trigger that literally blazes through her opponent’s health.
Each character will be available for $5.99 each or 100,000 fight money on August 4th, 2019. They can also be purchased together in the “Summer 2019 Character Bundle” for $14.99.
