Long-time “Street Fighter” fans have another reason to bring out their older arcade sticks. Capcom has finally confirmed that Legacy Support will be available for the latest iteration, “Street Fighter V.”

After pondering for some time, the developer has finished evaluating the use of the driver from Lab Zero Games. Shoryuken reported that a source who had received an advanced copy of “Street Fighter V” has confirmed that PS3 peripherals were added with support. The screenshot of the support can be seen in the link above.

Other details that were obtained alongside the rather big 5.9GB update for “Street Fighter V” include the addition of Alex as the DLC character. While this was previously a leak, the official Street Fighter Twitter has also confirmed Alex’s arrival in “Street Fighter V” come March, PlayStation Lifestyle reported.

“We can confirm that Alex will be the first DLC character and he will be available in March!” said the tweet. Considering the early arrival of the first DLC, players may not have to wait for too long to get the other confirmed DLC fighters, namely Juri, Ibuki, Urien, Guie and Balrog. For fans may want to start saving up on Fight Money to get Alex, it appears that he may be worth 100,000 Fight Money, though this has yet to be confirmed by Capcom.

With less than a week before the launch of “Street Fighter V,” more character intro videos have been released. Two more have been added, F.A.N.G. and Karin. F.A.N.G. is one of the new villains, as seen in his rather slippery and shady design. Using his unblockable poisonous projectiles and poisonous cloud will damage the enemy slowly but surely. Add his sidestep and ability to keep attacking the enemy in barrages, as seen in the video below.

The other new character intro is for Karin, another one of the female fighters in the roster and among the affluent ones in the game. Karin is the best opponent for airborne fighters, as her handling is among the best ones in the game.

Finally, there is recently released cinematic CG opening for “Street Fighter V.” According to Forbes, the trailer features a lot of undertones referring to the history of the franchise, highlighted by the visual appeal of the design, seen in the link above.
