Capcom announced the final character coming to Street Fighter V's roster. Meet Luke. This is a new character and, according to Capcom, a "key player in the future of the series." This seems to indicate that Luke will be one of the key stars in Street Fighter VI.

This wouldn't be the first time Capcom showed off a future key figure in a previous title. They did this with Alex in Street Fighter III. They also did it for Ryu in Street Fighter IV and Necalli for Street Fighter V.

What's the deal with Luke? Well, he's a puncher. As in, he likes to throw a lot of punches with a fighting style reminiscent of an MMA fighter or boxer. He also seems to look at lot like series veteran Guile. Blonde hair? Yep. Dog tags? You know it. Sonic Boom style projectiles? They're here too. Hell, Luke even mentions that his dad has a large upper body tattoo of the flag, which again fits Guile.

Luke will be added to the roster in November of 2021. He is the final character that will be added following the release of Oro and Akira on August 16.

After a long journey away, 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. Oro retains many of his original moves and adds a handful of new ones for Street Fighter V, making him an immensely powerful fighter for players to master.

Making her highly-anticipated Street Fighter debut, 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. That said, her playstyle speaks volumes when she’s at close range, but she’s also equipped with some long-distance moves that will leave her opponents thinking twice about straying too far. With plenty of new tricks up her biker gloves, Akira has been studying up and will be ready to school anyone who crosses her path.
Oro, Akira, and Luke can be acquired via the Street Fighter V Season 5 Character Pass or Premium Pass. You can also purchase each character separately for $5.99 (USD) or by spending 100,000 of the in-game Fight Money. Extra stages on their own go for $3.99 or 70,000 Fight Money.
