Our readers would be excited to see Skullomania in Street Fighter 5; see who else they voted as potential DLC fighters from the EX series

Fighters that will already be appearing in Fighting EX Layer... does this completely exclude their chances in Street Fighter 5?

Update: The reslts are in! Hit the jump below to check out how our readers voted.

Earlier: So given, seeing combatants appear in Street Fighter 5 from the Street Fighter EX series is a little less likely than the other games we've mentioned. These fighters are basically owned by Arika, so Capcom would require permission to use them.

It's made even more unlikely due to the fact that Arika is developing their own fighting game using these characters. Their game is now officially called "Fighting EX Layer."

What if it actually happened though? This certainly isn't completely impossible.

Guest fighters have a way of showing up in other franchises fairly often these days. It'd certainly be an interesting way of crosspromoting.

Characters that came from this series include Hokuto/Bloody Hokuto, Skullomania, Kairi, Doctrine Dark, Allen Snider, Garuda, Area, Hayate, and many more. It's certainly a very unique roster.

Since there are twenty combatants listed in this poll, you have the option to vote up to five times. Of course, the option to express interest in none of them also exists.
