Evo 2013 is more than just a tournament, and this year at Capcom’s panel they announced that in addition to the balance update for Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition, there will be a total of five new characters added. These characters include Elena, best known from Street Fighter III: Third Strike, Poison, Hugo, and Rolento, from Final Fight, though all three have made guest appearances in other Capcom fighters such as the Street Fighter Alpha series and Street Fighter x Tekken. A fifth character hasn’t been revealed, but it was confirmed that it will be someone new to the Street Fighter series. Whether or not it is another guest character, or something original, only time will tell.
