More reported info leaks from Vergeben claim Makoto and F.A.N.G's apprentice may be part of eight character Season 4 DLC package

Season 4 announcement may be coming 'sooner than usual'

Earlier this week a prominent fighting game information leaker by the name of Vergeben claimed a handful of Street Fighter characters were on their way to Season 4, now the same user has come forward with more.

Once again on reddit Vergeben has dropped new potential information that speculates a bigger than usual DLC package for Street Fighter 5's fourth season.

While we've seen six characters added in each of the last three years Season 4 will allegedly add eight with two being free of charge. Here's a bit of what Vergeben posted:

"I had another person recently tell me that they only know about Makoto and a new character being in Season 4, while 2 characters will be free DLC. So there could be some kind of truth in the middle there," they wrote.

"Meaning that Viper, Necro, Q, Oro, Sodom, Makoto, and two new characters (F.A.N.G's apprentice Phantom being one of them?) will all be coming as Season 4 characters, but two of them are free, as opposed to the original plan I'd heard where four would've been free.

So six are DLC among those, while two [will be] free. I doubt either of the two new characters would be free. So maybe Sodom and Q are free? I wouldn't be surprised if that's what winds up happening."

As far as qualification goes, Vergeben made a few claims about Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, stating that the game would be labeled "Ultimate," Ridley would be on the roster, the Ice Climbers and Solid Snake would return and that Castlevania's Simon Belmont would be a part of the mix.

Thus far all but the Belmont prediction have proven true, and it's very well possible we will see the vampire hunter as an eventual addition to the SSMBU roster.

We take all of this with a hefty grain of salt considering nothing is official, but as of now the pieces do seem to fit in their respective places. What do you think of these leaks?

Are you hoping they're true or are your fingers crossed for other Season 4 fighters?
