Street Fighter 5 March update will introduce new characters and features

This month’s Street Fighter 5 update will include a “slew” of new features and fixes for PS4 and PC players.

The biggest addition is Alex, an all new character sporting a deadly assortment of grapple-focused attacks.

Alex is the first of many new fighters planned for the game, some of which will be added through regular monthly updates.


The update will also introduce a new mode known as “Challenges.” Players will have access to 16 unique challenges for each character, teaching you new skills and moves as you progress.
