During the Sony media briefing at Paris Games Week, Capcom unveiled quite a bit of new information on Street Fighter 5. In addition to the latest fighter, Dhalsim, it was also revealed that players will be seeing six additional fighters within a year of the game's launch.


If that news wasn't enough to excite you, Capcom also showed a quick image during the presentation that gives a look at who these fighters might be. You can see all six featured in silhouette below.

All of these characters will be available by using the in-game Fight Money -- a currency that can be earned simply by playing.

Capcom reiterated they're moving away from doing large bundles of post launch content, such as the Super Street Fighter 4 and Ultra Street Fighter 4 upgrades, and will instead focus on continuously releasing new post launch content on a regular basis.
They confirmed they will be releasing 6 new characters post launch in 2016, which will bring the total roster up to 22 characters by the beginning of 2017.

On average, Capcom will release one new character every two months, provided everything stays on track with their development schedule.

More details will be shared when their post launch plans are confirmed.

So, who do you think the first six DLC fighters will be based on the image above? Leave your guesses in the comments below.
