Capcom has just announced that Street Fighter V owners will be getting a free character! Yes that’s right I said free and it’s also a character that’s well known to the franchise, it’s Sakura! There’s a catch though and that she’s only free for a limited time so you only get to use her until January 23. But it’s still a good way to increase the hype for the upcoming Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition.
Sakura will be the 1st character to debut in the upcoming 3rd season for Street Fighter V and she will be available to purchase individually or as part of the Season 3 Character Pass and she has changed since we last saw her. Instead of the classic blue and white outfit players are used to seeing, she’s now dressed in a darker, green-heavy outfit. Also according to Capcom, any EXP and Fight Money that you earned with Sakura during the free period will be gone right after January 23, but if players purchase her afterwards, all of those earned credits will all be moved to your accounts.
Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition will be launching on January 16 for the Playstation 4.
