Who’s left to add to Street Fighter V Arcade Edition? Plenty, if you start mining other games. Capcom is adding two additional characters from the Final Fight series, both of which have been demanded for some time: Poison and Lucia Morgan. Plus, the very last character from the original lineup that wasn’t in the game yet: E. Honda.
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.
The addition of E. Honda, Lucia and Poison brings the total roster of playable characters in Street Fighter V Arcade Edition to 38. You can get these guys for $5.99 each, or 100,000 in Fight Money if you’ve earned that much. There will also be a Summer 2019 Character Bundle, released one day later on August 5, that lets you get all three at a discount ($14.99) plus each character’s Battle Costume and Default Colors 3-10.
You can add E. Honda, Lucia and Poison to Street Fighter V Arcade Edition August 4, on all versions of the game (Playstation 4 and PC via Steam).
