Series veteran returns in Street Fighter V as DLC character

CAPCOM's official Street Fighter YouTube channel began streaming a reveal trailer for Ibuki on Sunday.

The trailer did not announce when Ibuki will be added as a playable character. CAPCOM previously added Alex and Guile to the game as DLC characters in March and April, respectively.

Street Fighter V is the latest entry in the Street Fighter fighting game franchise. The game shipped on February 16 in North America and Europe for PlayStation 4 and PC (via Steam).

The game launched with a core of 16 playable characters — four of whom are brand new to the franchise: Ryu, Ken, Chun-Li, Nash, M. Bison, Cammy, Birdie, Vega, Karin Kanzuki, Necalli, Rainbow Mika, Zangief, Laura, Rashid, Dhalsim, and F.A.N.G.

Sony revealed at the PlayStation Experience event on December 6 that the six additional characters that would be released post-launch in 2016 include: Alex, Guile, Ibuki, Balrog, Juri, and Urien.

Players can earn the characters through gameplay for free, but players can also purchase the 2016 Season Pass to get the new characters as soon as they are released.

Capcom revealed that it will release a free expansion with the game series' first "cinematic story experience" in June. The expansion's story will focus mainly on M. Bison and Shadaloo, and will take place between Street Fighter IV and Street Fighter III.
