10 Comments

The next DLC character for fighting game Street Fighter V will be revealed tomorrow, February 9, Capcom has announced. In a tweet today, Capcom added that it will also premiere a song from Lupe Fiasco's new album, Drogas Light, tomorrow.

Perhaps the character will be revealed as part of a trailer that features the song. Whatever the case, we'll report back with all the details tomorrow.

No Caption Provided

The latest DLC character for Street Fighter V was Akuma, who was released in December. You can learn more about Akuma here.

Fiasco is no stranger to Street Fighter. Last year, he defeated professional fighting game player Daigo Umehara in a Street Fighter V exhibition match.

A known fan of video games, Fiasco has in the past wrote lyrics that reference various game titles and consoles. A recent example can be found in the track "Adoration of the Magi."

"Yeah, lots of options, now up is down, two player // Now A is jump and B is punch // You seein' somethin' that weren't there // To find friendliness in a nemesis, it's a old test // 3 buttons, see somethin' // That's emphasis on genesis."

What character are you hoping to see added to the Street Fighter V roster? Let us know in the comments below!

Why capcom is teaming up with someone who release an album named Drogas (drugs)? this makes no sense.

I want to see a new Dark Sakura with tan skin, bandaged hands, open toed sneakers or bare feet, purple fireballs, and vertical fireballs like she had in the Capcom Vs series. She should have a shadowy dash uppercut as well. It should essentially be a Psycho powered Sakura like Violent Ken.

If we can't get new characters, then I wish Roy or Tiffany from Rival Schools would be in the game.
