Urien is slated for a September release; Capcom clears up the recent Street Fighter 5 confusion

Yesterday, information on Street Fighter 5's September update was released by Capcom. Among the details about double Fight Money events and a new punishment system for rage quitters (which is actually rolling out later today), a note about colors for the DLC characters seemed to cause confusion for fans.

The Capcom Unity blog entry states that Street Fighter 5 season pass owners will be receiving colors 3-10 for the default and battle costumes on all six of the DLC fighters free of charge. This perplexed many fans, since only five of the six DLC fighters are currently available and the update blog did not mention Urien's release at all.

FGC members began wondering: Is Urien going to be released in August before the September update drops? Though the blog entry seemed to suggest something along those lines, it look as though a release for Urien this month isn't the case.

We reached out to Capcom to get the lowdown, and they confirmed with us that Urien will be seeing a release sometime in September.
