There is a new trial running on the PlayStation Store and Steam and this time it’s for Capcom’s punchy face game, Street Fighter V. The trial, which is to celebrate EVO, runs from today until August 11th and will let you fight as the original Street Fighter V launch roster and also the Season 3 characters.

Here is a list of all the characters you can play as.
- M. Bison
- R. Mika
A couple of new fighters were leaked for the game recently and Capcom took the unusual step of confirming the leak.
The first character is one of the original Street Fighter alumni with E.Honda making his return to the franchise. In the trailer you can see E.Honda taking the fight to Dhalsim and Zangief and employing Trigger moves Tajikarao and Onigawara, with the latter looking very devastating. E.Honda will also have three alternative skins to use. While E.Honda may be considered the main attraction for this bundle two other characters were revealed.
After last appearing in Ultra Street Fighter IV Poison and her whip make a return to the franchise, and this time around she really uses her whip for going on the offensive. In this fight, she is going up against Chun Li and unleashing devastating results. Her Trigger Effects are Toxic Glamor and Poison Cocktail. Poison will have four alternate costumes and in the trailer you can see that one of them is a dress.
Lucia is a newcomer to Street Fighter but was previously in Final Fight 3. Lucia’s backstory is that she is a detective from Metro City, and she’s out to catch all the criminals. In her trailer, she appears to have quite quick attacks that can land damage in fast succession. Her Triggers are Weapon Fury and the rather bright and brutal looking Burning Fight. Lucia will also have four alternate costumes.
Recently Yoshinori Ono stated that people shouldn’t expect a Street Fight VI anytime soon, so it could be that we’ll be waiting until the next generation of console to reveal anything. Heck, we might even get some news about Tekken x Street Fighter which was announced back in 2010. However, that game has been indefinitely delayed with Harada stating in 2018 it was only around 30% complete and then this year questions arose whether it would be released at all. Tekken X Street Fighter was supposed to be like Street Fighter X Tekken but using Tekken models instead.
