Street Fighter V upgrade, DLC plans announced, Necalli revealed

Capcom announced the latest addition to Street Fighter V during Evo 2015. Unlike the previous reveals, this one is new to the series: Necalli.

And in breaking with franchise tradition, all balance changes, system adjustments, and upgrades will be free—no more Ultra, Arcade, Hyper, or Championship Edition shenanigans.
