A balance update and new “gameplay improvements” have also been promised.
Champion Edition boosts the fighter count up to 40, with the addition of a new fighter: Gill, the antagonist of Street Fighter III. A character trailer has been released to show offhis iconic red-and-blue design (to represent fire and ice,) and how his attacks translate to the latest Street Fighter. “Typically plotting behind the scenes, he is now ready to reveal himself to the world, as he setsout to fulfill the prophecy that the Secret Society has coveted since ancient times,” the description on the trailer reads. You’ll be able to nab him through the upgrade kit from December, and he’ll bring the”Sun Chase Moon” stage with him.
