Fan favorite Alex may yet feature in Street Fighter V

Street Fighter character and fan favorite Alex may have a bigger role in Street Fighter V than originally planned. After making a surprise appearance at a New York Comic Con panel, Street Fighter creator Yoshinori Ono hinted that the team were looking at ways of increasing Alex’s involvement in Street Fighter V.

While he didn’t announce any new characters, Ono hinted at giving Alex a bigger role in the game despite him not being announced as a playable character yet. So far he’s been given a minor and non-interactive role, even appearing in the background of the New York stage.

Street Fighter V releases sometime in 2016 with a second beta test planned for 22 October.
