I’ve made a small list of characters I would love to play as in Street Fighter V that should have been in the game to begin with.
This list is in no particular order. I love all these characters and would like to see them added to Street Fighter V eventually.
I was quite surprised to learn that E. Honda wasn’t in Street Fighter V. I thought he would make because he was one of my favorite characters back in the day. E. Honda isn’t a very popular character, but that doesn’t mean Capcom can’t think of something to make people want to play as this guy again.
I briefly wrote about Blanka in my top 10 games of 1991. Why isn’t he in Street Fighter V? Blanka has been in my top 5 Street Fighter characters since I first played as him when I was 5 years old. We needs some more Blanka in our life so get rolling Capcom!
Capcom’s reason for not adding Sagat is because there are already fighters that fight like him. Well how about you take those fighters out and give us the original then?
C. Viper was one of my favorite characters to play as in Street Fighter IV. She’s tough, has a great design, and some pretty awesome moves too. She’s technically already in Street Fighter V as a Cameo character, but that’s not enough. I want play as her.
I don’t care how similar his fighting style is to Ryu’s put this dude in the game. Akuma is a powerhouse and Street Fighter doesn’t feel complete without him in it. I would also love to see a Ryu vs Akuma animated cutscene in the game.
And that wraps up my small list of characters that I would love to see In Street Fighter V.
