Seth and Gill have been announced for Street Fighter V: Champion Edition and a new balance patch is out for the game.
If you haven't been keeping up with the latest in Street Fighter, they've been happily chugging along, releasing new content and making plans for the next edition of the game. This new edition will soon be graced by two new characters to the roster!
Seth was the penultimate boss from Street Fighter IV and will be making a return in Street Fighter V: Champion Edition as noted in this CAPCOM blog post.
One might notice that Seth looks a wee bit different as compared to the Street Fighter IV version. Well, Seth is a machine and it's taken on an entirely different body, placing the same biological brain into the body of Doll Unit Zero. Seth nonetheless speaks with the same voice, has the same burning desire to find strong fighters, and uses the same terrifying abilities to steal moves.
Gill, meanwhile, leads the Secret Society and has a mastery over leemental balance. Wielding both fire and ice, Gill will be a serious contender for even the seasoned fighters to take on.
Best of all, Gill is said to be available in-game right now! You can pick him up for $5.99/€5.99/£4.99 or 100,000 fight money. He'll also be making his way to the full version of Street Fighter V: Champion Edition when it launches next year.
