Earlier, Siliconera reported that Alex and Urien from Street Fighter III would be part of the playable roster in Street Fighter V. Now, we can confirm two more characters: Karin Kanzuki and R. Mika from the Alpha series.
Karin made her first appearance in a Street Fighter spin-off manga starring Sakura. She made her playable debut in Street Fighter Alpha 3, and was then included in Capcom Fighting Evolution as well.
Meanwhile, R. Mika, too, made her first appearance in Street Fighter Alpha 3. She hasn’t been featured in any of Capcom’s fighters following that game.
Look out for Karin and Mika to be revealed for Street Fighter V at some point in the future.
Update: Siliconera asked a Capcom spokesperson to confirm this report too and we received the same reply saying, “Capcom does not comment on rumors or speculation.”
