Street Fighter 5's next character very possibly could be Zeku, and Zeku very possibly could be announced this weekend

Vesper Arcade reads the tea leaves and comes to some exciting possible conclusions

We aren't certain of the sixth and final DLC character identity for Season 2 of Street Fighter 5, but if we had to put our money on someone we'd put it on Guy's master: Zeku.

An EventHubs reader known only as Flowtron correctly predicted Akuma and Ed before either character was released. Back in May, he also predicted Abigail, Menat and Zeku as the remaining DLC characters.

Seeing as Flowtron is now four for four, we're all but expecting Zeku, and if that's the case we may see him as early as this coming weekend.

Tokyo Game Show 2017 runs September 21-24, and has been a favorite Street Fighter 5 reveal hub for Capcom in years past. Zeku, being of Japanese descent, fits the bill even further as a prime candidate for an SF5 reveal, and would be a nice bow to wrap up TGS' 1,000,000 yen, eight man SF5 invitational with.

Vesper Arcade has put together a video explaining the above in more detail. He also speculates on Zeku's potential fight style based on what we know about Guy along with the direction we've seen developers take Street Fighter 5.

Is it too early for yet another character reveal? Will Zeku indeed be the next fighter and play similar to Guy? Hear out Vesper's thoughts and then chime in with your own in the comments after.
