There’s a huge rumor swirling around the Street Fighter community with news coming from Seliconera. Their sources say that both Alex and Urien, both from Street Fighter 3, will be making an appearance in Street Fighter V and that we should “look out for the two to be announced at some point in the future”.
With this news it makes people wonder if Capcom is going to announce any information at EVO 2015 like they have done in the past with other Street Fighter games, or if the source means in the next few months that there will be a special announcement?
It looks likely that Alex and Urien will be in the game since it seems that Capcom is bringing characters from past Street Fighter games that have not been seen for the longest time. For example, Charlie Nash and Birdie, both of these characters last appeared in the Street Fighter Alpha games.
Now one thing that makes me believe that Urien will be in Street Fighter V is that him and Charlie Nash, who was announced earlier this year, both have the crystal in the middle of their forehead. They’re also similar to Gill who was the main antagonist in Street Fighter 3 and the brother of Urien. Could there be a link between them?
As for Alex, it would be interesting to see him in Street Fighter V since he was suppose to be the main character in Street Fighter 3. He would be one of the main characters who focuses mainly on grappling his opponent in the game.
It’s also noted that Capom will be announcing a Brazilian character soon to Street Fighter V. As of right now there are only two Brazilian characters in the Street Fighter universe, Blanka and Sean. They may even have a new character all together, but if Sean is added to Street Fighter V, I believe that it will only confirm the fact that characters from older Street Fighter games (Third Strike) are one of the main focuses.
