Capcom Cup 2018 is about two weeks away now, and as we continue to wait for the big event and hopefully some big reveals for Street Fighter 5: Arcade Edition, prominent info leaker X-Kira continues to share potential details on what we might be able to expect for the game next year.

The latest from the desk of X-Kira talks about the Season 4 roster. According to him, Season 4 is going to be fairly polarizing for people.

"A Season of Love and Hate, many e will like it and many will hate..." writes X-Kira on Twitter. While that's a bit of a vague statement, what is written in response to some of the comments in the Twitter thread is much more telling.

According to X-Kira, a 'strong grappler' is set to join the roster in Street Fighter 5 Season 4. Unfortunately, we do not have a name attached to this character description, but traditionally Street Fighter 5's DLC roster each season has featured some form of grappler-style representation: Season 1 had Alex, Season 2 was Abigail, and Season 3 had multiple characters with command throw moves including G, Cody, and Blanka.

X-Kira goes on to say that this season will include two female characters. "2/4" will be female, he says, which likely means two women and four male fighters next year.

As we've reportedly previously, several of X-Kira's tweets in the past seem to point to Rose being one of the characters in Season 4. At the time of writing this, X-Kira has a profile picture of Rose on Twitter and a banner of C. Viper, which could be hints of what's to come or just for the aesthetics.

Earlier today, X-Kira shared another image of a tarot card which is likely a hint at one of the characters next season given his past clues. This tarot card is "The Fool," though X-Kira says that that part of it isn't the important detail.

There's a good chance that the hint here is the tarot card itself, which again can be tied to Rose.

Recently, X-Kira shared claims of a Super Street Fighter 5 being in the works. According to his reports, Super Street Fighter 5 will be the final version of the game and the expected window of its release is December 2019.

X-Kira went on to say that Season 5 will be the final season of Street Fighter 5. If this is the case, this does line up with this statement about the game's development that Street Fighter producer Yoshinori Ono said in a 2016 interview:

"It's not just a 1-2 year thing. We're looking pretty far ahead... We've planned out as far as 2020 or so."

Though X-Kira has been spot on with several predictions in recent times and in the past, what's reported here is still unofficial. As always, be sure to take the information with a grain of salt.

Which characters do you think we'll see in Street Fighter 5 Season 4? Let us know in the comments below.
