Now I'm motivated

Through last night's big leak, we learned that Street Fighter 5 will be adding three new characters after EVO 2019 finals on August 4, but now we have more concrete details as to how players can acquire them in game.

Capcom has announced the official release information and pricing for E. Honda, Poison and Lucia including how they'll be priced separately and how they will appear in the new Summer 2019 Character Bundle. Plus, the company also revealed which Extra Battle costume will be following Ibuki's Onimusha attire.

On August 4, all three characters will be available to purchase separately for $5.99 USD, and they can all still be acquired using Fight Money for the standard 100,000 FM each.

The Summer character bundle will go live the next day, August 5, for $14.99 and will include all three new fighters together plus their Battle Costumes and colors 3–10 to select from.

For the new stage, "Honda Sento," it will also be released alongside the characters on August 4 for the standard price of $3.99 or 70,000 FM though it will not be included in the aforementioned character bundle.

Cody will be the next character to receive his first crossover costume in SF5 via Extra Battle mode to become the cool-headed Vergil from Devil May Cry. The first week's mission will begin on August 30 and run through September 27 where new battle music for Dante, Nero and Vergil will also be available to unlock.

M. Bison's classic Street Fighter Alpha costume will also be returning to SF5's Fighting Chance mode beginning on August 4 for players who may have missed it the first time around.

Street Fighter 5 begins its free trial period today which includes the 16 base roster characters plus all six Season 3 DLC characters. It is scheduled to run from Aug. 1–11.

During the trial period, Capcom is running deep discounts on both PlayStation 4 and Steam with Arcade Edition and Arcade Edition Deluxe each priced 50 percent off. Most of the character passes and costume bundles are also 30–70 percent off their original prices.

The Capcom Unity blog post does not mention any balance changes coming with the new update, so any chances of seeing a new Season 4.5 patch may ultimately remain just a pipe dream.
