Now Playing: Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition - Mega Man And Roll Costumes Trailer

While it might have been a pleasant surprise, Street Fighter fans won't see another entry in the long-running fighting game franchise at EVO 2019. In fact, fans will likely not see a Street Fighter 6 for a while, as the team has its sight set on Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition.

Series producer Yoshinori Ono confirmed the news on Twitter, saying that he "[doesn't] have SF6." Ono suggests the team is more concerned with the Arcade Edition of Street Fighter V, which launched on PC and PlayStation 4 in January 2018. SFV: AE includes all the base game's content, newly implemented features, and a voucher for 12 additional fighters from Seasons 1 and 2 like Ibuki, Urien, and more. You can check out our Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition review here.

Street Fighter V's base version released on PC and PlayStation 4 in February 2016, seven years after Street Fighter IV's initial release. (There had been several different versions of SFIV since then, one release each year in the lead-up to SFV.) Prior to this, the last mainline entry was 1997's Street Fighter III: New Generation.

Capcom switched up the way DLC characters are offered, handing them out individually for a set cost instead of through a Season Pass. Kage, an evil version of Ryu, is SFV's most recent combatant.
