Some Street Fighter fans were slightly disappointed when the end of M. Bison's trailer didn't tease the next character for Street Fighter 5. While this makes sense with E3 right around the corner, fans still wanted something to get excited about.

Well, here's your tease. The next character reveal likely won't be coming from Street Fighter 4 according to a recent Tweet from Street Fighter 5's producer, Yoshinori Ono. In it, he states that the new character is someone we haven't seen for a while.

That knocks out a ton of options, and leads into the hype of looking at other Street Fighter Alpha characters or Street Fighter 3 characters making an appearance. It might even mean the release of a fighter from the first game.

Also, in Ono fashion, he has released an off-screen picture of Street Fighter 5 showing Chun-Li, who appears to be sporting purple, and Bison.

Check out the image below, then let us know who you think will be joining the roster next.
