Although it’s been more than four years since Street Fighter 5 came out, Capcom’s game continues to release updates to keep fans engaged with the new content. Capcom recently confirmed an upcoming livestream where more information on Street Fighter 5 Season 5 will be revealed. The spring update will reveal more details about Rose and Gold that could be particularly intriguing to longtime fans of the franchise.
This livestream comes just over a month after the release of an update for Street Fighter 5. The update included V-Shift, new gameplay, and support for Dan, the first character from season 5. So far, Capcom has revealed three of the four characters to be added to the roster this season. Although Rose, Oro, and Akira have been confirmed, there is no information yet on who the fourth character will be. In addition to these characters, players who own Street Fighter Season 5 can also play as Eleven, a character who imitates others.
Capcom will host the Spring Update live stream on April 6 on Twitch, YouTube, and Facebook at 3:00 p.m. PDT. The event will cover details about Street Fighter season 5 and more information on the long-awaited characters Rose and Oro. Unfortunately, it appears that there will be no information about Akira released during this live stream, but hopefully, there will be more details soon.

According to the original roadmap, Rose was supposed to be released during the spring update, while Gold was meant to be available with Akira in the summer. However, the COVID-19 crisis forced Capcom to change its plans and delay the launch of Dan, which was scheduled for last winter. There’s no updated roadmap yet, but the early release of Gold could be an attempt to get back to normal and have Akira available this summer. The last character to be revealed could still be available this fall, but his identity remains a mystery.
The roadmap also specifies other releases that will come with the new characters in this update. Rose is supposed to come with five costumes and a stage, while Oro comes with only three costumes. Akira was announced with five costumes and a stage as well. Finally, the mystery character will come with three costumes and a stage that is scheduled to premiere next year. Hopefully, Capcom’s live stream will confirm the Rose DLC release date and provide an updated roadmap in addition to all the information on the spring update.
Street Fighter 5 is out now for PC and PS4.
