Rather than play cryptic with a series of silhouettes and gradual reveals, Capcom decided that for this next season of Street Fighter V, they’d make a big announcement with a bang. At the end of this year’s Capcom Cup, they revealed all six DLC characters for Street Fighter V‘s Season 3.

This season, four fan favorites will be joining the cast. Blanka, Cody, Sakura, and Sagat return once again in the latest entry of the series! They’ll be joined by two newcomers, Falke and G. Not much information is available about these newcomers for now, but you can see them in the Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition opening cinematic.

Sakura is the first of these characters to be available. In her latest incarnation, she’s recently graduated from school and found a part-time job at an arcade. She no longer wears her iconic schoolgirl outfit, and has an new costume. Plus, she’s learned a few new moves since we last saw her.

Sakura’s original map, the Kasugano Residence, will be added to the game as well. It’s a brand new take on the classic stage from Street Fighter Alpha 2.

Sakura and the Season 3 Character Pass will be made available on January 16, 2018. Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition will also launch on that day for PS4 and PC.

Pre-ordering the character pass will get you nine new DLC costumes. You’ll receive nostalgia costumes for Alex, Ibuki, Juri, Kolin, and Akuma. In addition, you’ll get special 30th Anniversary costumes for M. Bison, Guile, Ibuki, and Karin.
