Just yesterday, the official Street Fighter social media accounts updated their profile pictures to an image that heavily alludes to an incoming reveal for G, Street Fighter 5 Season 3's next DLC character. Today, the company has released a bit more about the mysterious fighter.

Both the Street Fighter Twitter account and Street Fighter producer Yoshinori Ono have shared cryptic clues about G this morning. Each hint comes in the form of what appears to be a snippet of a speech.

One reads, "the seven continents to... I will Smash Over... dream will charge us with..." The other says, "unification... bestowed upon you... understand my purpose."

These scattered words are difficult to make sense of, but both tweets come with the hashtag #MessageToThePeople.

Though we're still waiting for more concrete information, these clues definitely seem to be pointing to G being a presidential-type character.

Street Fighter's tweet also says, "My voice is your voice. What I fight for is to fight for all of you." This strikes me as G being a world leader trying to gain a following, but whether or not he is righteous or sinister is still up in the air.

We recently speculated on what we think G might play like in Street Fighter 5, so be sure to check out our piece and join the discussion. The fighting game community is expecting the big G reveal sometime during the EVO 2018 weekend, and we'll have the latest news and updates for you right here on EventHubs.
