"SF5" became one of most successful titles in the game's franchise due to its unique blend of gameplay features and an interesting selection of characters. It has sold 1.9 million copies across the PS4 and PC platforms.

G added to 'Street Fighter 5's' roster

According to Event Hubs, Capcom will likely reveal that G is joining "Street Fighter 5's" roster at the San Diego Comic-Con. The Japanese video game publisher has a history of revealing something new and exciting for the fans, whether it be "Street Fighter" or other upcoming titles.

Capcom announced Ken Masters for "SF5" at SDCC 2015, while Juri's trailer was showcased at SDCC 2016. Spider-Man, Mike Haggar, Frank West, and Nemesis made their "Marvel Vs. Capcom: Infinite" appearance at last year's event. So, it is not surprising that they will showcase G at this year's SDCC.

While there are no concrete details about G, besides dressing up as a showman, he is part of the sequel's Season 3 lineup, alongside Sakura, Blanka, Falke, Cody, and Sagat.
