Update: The results are in! Hit the jump to see which characters would create the most excitement if they were to be announced for Season 4 of Street Fighter 5: Arcade Edition.

Earlier: When Street Fighter 5 first launched back in 2016, there were only 16 playable characters. DLC from Season 1, Season 2, and Season 3 have added an additional 18 fighters — we are currently at a total of 34 combatants.

Seeing as how Capcom intends on supporting Street Fighter 5 until 2020, there is reason to believe that 2019 will host a set of new fighters for Season 4. Many characters have already made appearances in the game's main story and character stories.

We've already seen the presence of C. Viper, Oro, Decapre, Gouken, Juli, Juni, Abel, Evil Ryu, Rose, Dan, E. Honda, Hakan, Gen Sean, and probably more. Before they actually became playable, we also previously saw cameos from Sakura, Sagat, Juri, Urien, Guile, Balrog, and Alex.

Apparently CYG|Daigo Umehara is expecting Evil Ryu to be playable in Season 4 based on the promotional trailer for Street Fighter 5: Arcade Edition that was released before Season 3 started. More than likely, he's probably also hoping for this character's return considering that he played him during Ultra Street Fighter 4.

According to Capcom's CFN popularity poll, the top ten characters that hasn't made their way into Street Fighter 5 yet are Makoto, Q, Poison, Evil Ryu, Dudley, Dan, Fei-Long, Guy, Oro, and C. Viper — excluding characters that are appearing in Fighting EX Layer. Notably, fan favorites like Sagat, Sakura, Akuma, Chun-Li, Ryu, and Cody have already been made available to players.

After the jump, you'll be able to vote up to ten times in the poll. Which characters would you be most excited to see in Season 4?

Note that the characters listed are in alphabetical order. At the very bottom, "a newcomer" is also an option.
