According to EventHubs, players previously found text files which referenced the characters Alex and Urien. There is also speculation that "Fan" is a reference to the final new character who will be revealed "by the end of the year." The character will join previously announced newcomers Laura, Necalli and Rashid.

Just last week Street Fighter V producer Yoshinori Ono teased at least six new downloadable content characters who will be in the game. The characters will be unlockable via gameplay or microtransactions. Capcom has confirmed that all Street Fighter V gameplay DLC will be free for players who are willing to play enough.
