Yet another exciting Cody tease for Street Fighter 5 dropped on the official Street Fighter Twitter today, this time in the form of a letter from Mike Haggar to the upcoming DLC character.

We've recently learned that Mayor Travers is all but officially en route to the character select screen in just a matter of days, but today's reveal brings with it some interesting lore.

Ever since we saw his reveal at Capcom Cup in December, fans have been speculating about Cody's apparent level up in status as he's shed his prison uniform for a spiffy vest and slicked hair.

Such attire has suggested that he may have taken on the title of Mayor of Metro City. Today's tease confirms this as Haggar's formal letter explains that former mayors are obligated to reach out to new ones.

He also notes Cody's tendency to go beyond using his fists while fighting, perhaps alluding to the idea that the blonde Street Fighter will be using his trademark knife or another weapon in SF5.

Here's the tweet containing the letter. You can view it by clicking the City of Metro City corporate seal:
