Street Fighter 5 reveal looking more likely - Yoshinori Ono heading to Red Bull Battlegrounds

History repeats itself? Red Bull Battlegrounds last year we got the teaser for Akuma

Yoshinori Ono announced over Twitter the recent new gift he received from Redbull. It's one of the ten Street Fighter 30th anniversary care packages that Alex Valle and Maximilian also received.

Perhaps even more interesting than that is that Ono stated that he'll be making an appearance at Red Bull Battlegrounds next weekend. There's usually a good chance that something big will be announced if Ono is present at a tournament.

With the entirety of Season 2's cast released to the public, this cold be a good time for Capcom to start announcing Season 3 content. It was around this time last year where Akuma, the first of the Season 2 characters, was announced at... well, Red Bull Battle Grounds 2016.

So which character are we most expecting to see? If rumors and fan hype is to be believed, the most likely candidate is the king of Muay Thai himself: Sagat.

Considering that we only got a teaser last year for Akuma, that might be what we get here as well. Maybe they'll even try the "nobody said that was Akuma" statment again but with Sagat. Fun times ahead!

What do you think we'll see at the event? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section.
