Capcom teases brand new Street Fighter 5 character at NorCal Regionals, to be released on April 17th

While we've come to expect major announcements like this at trade shows that include Street Fighter 5 tournaments as opposed to mere stops on the Capcom Pro Tour, Capcom pulled a fast one and gave us a brand new character trailer at NorCal Regionals this year.

We've already known the 2018 DLC line up since December of last year, and thus far we've seen Sakura in January and then Blanka in February.

At this pace the community was hoping for the potential of a character each month, which would mean we'd have the entire roster by August's EVO.

With Falke up next, SF5 players anxiously hoped to see her some time in March. This obviously never came to fruition, but today's reveal confirms that we will be getting a new fighter in just over two weeks' time, on April 17th.

Thanks to Psyxes for sending this our way. Happy April Fool's.
