Street Fighter 5, which was released in 2016, will get a fifth and final season that will add five more fighters to the game. Get it? Five!

Capcom teased the future of Street Fighter 5 in a blog post published Wednesday. Details are still slim, with more updates on the new content coming to Street Fighter 5 expected “this summer.”

“Due to the positive reception to Season 4 and Champion Edition, we are planning to do a final Season ‘V,’ which will add ‘V’ more fighters to the roster,” Capcom said. “Three new stages are also being planned.”

One possible location for Capcom’s Street Fighter 5 season 5 reveal is Evo Online, which will take place over five weekends in July. Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition is included as part of the tournament’s main competition.

Street Fighter 5 got an update, Champion Edition, on Feb. 14. Capcom called it “the most robust version” of Street Fighter 5. All existing content from the game, including its Arcade Edition, was included in Champion Edition, alongside a whole bunch of new stuff. A new fighter, Gill, was added with the update.

Street Fighter 5 is available on PlayStation 4 and Windows PC.
