If there’s one thing that binds all digital media and channels together, it would probably be ads.

So it’s really no surprise that no small number of fans were unamused when Capcom announced that in-game ads were coming to Street Fighter V. The details, however, are even odder.

Street Fighter 5 is getting fan-favorite Blanka next week

The Street Fighter series has no lack of recognizable characters, but perhaps one of the most famous is Blanka. Sure, he might not have the followings that series regulars like Ryu and Chun-Li have, but you'd be hard pressed to find even a casual fighting game fan who can't identify Blanka on sight. With that kind of notoriety, it was only a matter of time before Blanka made his way to Street Fighter 5: Arcade Edition, and today Capcom revealed just when that will be.

Of course, there are still some ways to extend the game’s content, like adding new characters and adding new moves. That is basically what CAPCOM is doing in the Arcade Edition, set to launch in two months, that will add, in addition to the arcade mode, new V-Triggers for all characters.

Street Fighter 5 adds Zeku as a playable character

Street Fighter might seem to simply be a fighting game for many outsiders, but fans know that the franchise has a rich lore that goes beyond the flashy combos and button mashing. The game has dozens of characters that, naturally, stay only in the background, if even shown at all. Some, however, graduate to becoming a part of the main roster. That is exactly the case with the newest addition to Street Fighter’s stable of playable characters, Zeku, who first appeared a non-playable sparring partner.
