Street Fighter 5's 40th character is now available as Seth has officially joined the roster and servers are now back online.

Today's 20-gigabyte update is in preparation for upgrading Street Fighter 5: Arcade Edition into the latest and greatest Champion Edition. This latest version includes the lion's share of all DLC content that has been added to SF5 over the past four years.

Those who have pre-ordered Champion Edition will see Seth, along with all other DLC characters, on their character select screen once they're done updating.

Those who have not purchased Champion Edition can still nab Seth for the usual 100,000 Fight Money or $5.99 USD. Please note that players who wish to update from Arcade Edition to Champion Edition can do so for $25 while purchasing CE outright will cost $30. Though Seth is available today, CE will not be available as a standalone purchase until tomorrow, February 14.

The newcomer also brings with them a few alternate looks including Battle, Summer, Nostalgia, and Story costumes. The Story apparel can be unlocked by playing through the character's story mode, but the other three will cost Arcade Edition users $3.99 each.

Below you'll find some screenshots of Seth as well as their character trailer. If you'd like to know even more about them, feel free to check out our "Who is Seth?" article which details much of their backstory that comes from their initial appearance in Street Fighter 4.
