Capcom continued to hit its stride this year with Street Fighter V following a disappointing launch a couple of years ago. A third season of content was introduced, featuring six new fighters and some other balancing tweaks, along with a new Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition retail release. But it doesn’t look like the company is done with the fighting game yet.
Some interesting information has come out of X-Kira Datamining on Twitter. The user specializes in digging up information from popular games, in this case Street Fighter V. And based on their tweets, a fourth season of content for the game is already being planned, along with a new release.
The publisher could be introducing five “legacy” characters into the fold over the course of the next year, along with a new face joining up for the first time. They do warn to take the information “with a grain of salt” since Capcom hasn’t said anything, but it sounds very similar to the business plan it had this year. Check out the tweet below.

Take this with a grain of salt, in this Season salty is Real…

Vergeben, who has provided leaks in the past that have ended up being accurate (like Ridley and the Castlevania Belmonts being in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate), was able to dig up names of who would be joining the party. This includes Necro, Q and Oro from Street Fighter III fame, along with fan favorite Crimson Viper and Final Fight veteran Sodom, along with the not-yet-revealed newcomer.
But along with other information, including potential holiday outfits for a number of Street Fighter characters, X-Kira also discovered a listing for Super Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition, showing off some kind of release in December 2019. You can see the tweet below.

I think Capcom always intended for seasons to start in December. Season 3 was just delayed due to Arcade Edition.
