Hey there Capcom Unity! Happy Valentine’s Day! I hope your day is being filled with love and happiness. Speaking of love and happiness, I want to help spread the love by happily announcing the launch of Street Fighter V: Champion Edition and Seth! 

If you’re new to SFV, Street Fighter V: Champion Edition can get you caught up very quickly with all available characters, stages and costumes (excluding Fight Chance costumes, brand collaboration costumes and Capcom Pro Tour DLC), along with all the modes and features. In total Street Fighter VChampion Edition includes all 40 characters, 34 stages and over 200 costumes!

With the coming of a new iteration of Street Fighter V comes a new character, or in this case a returning one. As an avid Seth player from the days of Street Fighter IV, I’m excited to be talking about the return of Seth in Street Fighter V: Champion Edition. Seth arrives in SFV:CE with a different look than in SFIV. Seth’s consciousness awakens inside the body of Doll Unit Zero and is equipped with a new set of moves.

The King of Chaos returns!

Using Seth’s V-Skill I “Tanden Engine” will draw in the opponent, and the follow-up move “Tanden Install” will absorb their data. This opens up a ton of combo variety depending on who your opponent is.   V-Skill II is a fast forward dash that can be followed up with one of Seth’s special moves to create combo extensions. For a full written rundown of Seth’s abilities visit the Champion Edition announcement blog or check out these Seth Preview Videos!

You’ll notice that Seth’s body changes form when mimicking moves from various characters. If Seth steals moves from bigger characters, Seth’s new Doll Unit Zero body also grows to their size when using their attacks. Watching Seth’s muscles expand when mimicking characters like Zangief or Abigail is truly a sight to behold. Even stealing Blanka’s “Rolling Attack” has Seth mirroring some of Blanka’s animalistic like tendencies.

Rolling attacks? Seth’s got those.

One of my favorite aspects of Seth is how the combo potential changes with each opponent you face. Although I am a Laura main in SFV I have been enjoying playing as Seth to steal Laura’s “Thunder Clap.” Stealing that move has allowed more combo opportunities in addition to some new mixups. Test out all of Seth’s stolen abilities and see how it fits best with your combos!

Seth’s ability to steal moves on the fly may come as a shock to some…

Street Fighter V: Champion Edition is now available physically and digitally on PlayStation 4 and as a digital download on Steam for MSRP $29.99. For current Street Fighter V players, the Upgrade Kit for MSRP $24.99 offers INSTANT ACCESS to Seth and all available Champion Edition content.

With that, we would like to thank everyone for a great start to 2020! Please stay tuned to our social media channels for all the latest news and happenings. Thanks again and we hope you enjoy both Seth and Street Fighter V: Champion Edition!
