Luke is bringing fresh content to Street Fighter 5 and preparing us for Street Fighter 6

Capcom hit us with their final major update stream for Street Fighter 5 this week as they fully showcased the final character slated to join the game's roster: Luke.

While there's still plenty more to learn about this newcomer, we have quite a bit to break down when it comes to his appearance, role in the franchise's story, gameplay in Street Fighter 5, and the implications he may be hinting at for Street Fighter 6.

Having watched through and studied said showcase, Catalyst and I break down each of these aspects of Luke on the latest segment from the EventHubs Podcast.

Capcom has been prominently promoting Luke's significance beyond just Street Fighter 5, specifically noting that he'll be a key player in their next Street Fighter project.

We detail how this new fighter seems to be setting things up for a transition to Street Fighter 6, both when it comes to how he plays as well as how he might drive the overall story forward.
