Hot on the heels of Balrog’s inclusion into the Street Fighter 5 roster, Capcom announced over the weekend the next downloadable character for its fighting game will be Juri Han.
Speaking at a panel during this weekend’s EVO 2016 tournament, producer Yoshinori Ono confirmed Juri is expected to be playable by the end of July.
Juri was already included in the story mode expansion for Street Fighter 5, so her upcoming inclusion wasn’t exactly a big surprise to fans of the game. In fact, there are already a number of videos showing off her gameplay in the game, although nothing official from Capcom yet.
Juri was one of a handful of new characters that made their way to Super Street Fighter IV, with her inclusion offering some much-needed variety in fighting styles, specifically Taekwondo. We look forward to seeing her kick butt once again in Street Fighter 5.
