Following tonight's Capcom Cup 2017 Grand Finals, there was still some business that Capcom needed to address. That's regarding Street Fighter V's future and that future includes new characters. And guess what? Sakura's back!

The long-time favorite from the Street Fighter Alpha series showed off both of her new V-Trigger moves, as part of the upcoming Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition feature set. Her Critical Art fired off her own fireball and sent her opponent flying through the air.

Sakura is the first character to be featured as part of the Season 3 Character Pass. Five more characters will be introduced over the course of 2018. Sakura will come to Street Fighter V on January 16, the same day that Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition arrives.

But that's not all! Yoshinori Ono also showed off a second video that centered around Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition. All of the Season 3 characters were confirmed in this video and they include Blanka, Sagat, G, Falke, and Cody.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
