Today, during the Street Fighter V Summer Update 2021 presentation, fans were treated to some brand new Oro and Akira action. While fans were clamoring for the identity of the final mystery character, many were losing hope. Thankfully, Capcom delivered as Director Takayuki Nakayama and Producer Shuhei Matsumoto finally revealed the final character for Street Fighter V: Champion Edition. Say hello to Luke, a newcomer to the series that embodies what the future of the series will bring. You can check out his trailer below!
Luke is the fifth and final character of the fifth season for Street Fighter V: Champion Edition, marking the 45th fighter. From Capcom’s own description, Luke is meant to strike fast and hit hard, making him a formidable opponent. His projectiles look to work very different from most previous fighters and may suggest faster gameplay in future titles. Not much is known about Luke, but he appears to be an American fighter that may have some military experience. We won’t get his full backstory until we get closer to his November 2021 release. For now, take a look at Luke in the official screenshots, courtesy of Capcom.
Luke comes as a bit of a surprise for what fans were expecting, but we’ll have to wait and see what Capcom has in store. What do you think? Are you looking forward to playing as Luke? Are you ready for Street Fighter 6? Let us know in the comments below!
