Today we learned the released date and saw the gameplay of the last character coming for Street Fighter V, Luke.

He’ll be released on November 29 alongside his costumes, and you can check him out below. Of course, despite the fact that DLC releases are ending, Capcom will continue to support the game.

Director Takayuki Nakayama concluded the livestream by mentioning that for the development team, Street Fighter V has been a project with peaks and valleys, but thanks to the fans, they have managed to accomplish what they aimed for. The developers will use this experience as the springboard to move on to the next project.

Producer Shuhei Matsumoto also added that Luke is “an important character” that will be featured in the next Street Fighter project. While this is the last digital showcase, for Street Fighter V, it’s more of a “see you soon” than a “goodbye.” The developers look forward to sharing new information next year.

If you’re unfamiliar with Street Fighter V: Champion Edition, which is now available for PS4 and PC, here’s how Capcom describes it. You can also take a look at the previous character, Akira.

“Rule the ring with Street Fighter V: Champion Edition, the most robust version of the acclaimed fighting game! This new version includes all content (excluding Fighting Chance costumes, brand collaboration costumes and Capcom Pro Tour DLC) from both the original release and Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition. Champion Edition adds each character, stage and other content that released after Arcade Edition and with the release of this new version. In total: 40 characters, 34 stages, over 200 costumes – all action-packed into one knockout edition! READY? FIGHT!

All game mode additions and balance updates are free for owners of any Street Fighter V version. Additionally, all DLC characters remain earnable completely free of charge through completing various in-game challenges and receiving earned in-game currency, called Fight Money. For those who can’t wait, in-game content can be obtained instantly using real money. Certain additional content can only be acquired using Fight Money, which can be earned through normal gameplay.”
