Street Fighter 5’s Last New Character Leaked By Twitch
Twitch has accidentally leaked a new Street Fighter V character called Eleven via an email sent to users – Eleven is the last character to be added in SF5’s final season of content.
As spotted by AllGamesDelta on Twitter, an email rounding up the coming week’s events on Twitch contains a blurb about the Street Fighter V Winter Update, which is set to occur on Thursday. The blurb notes that it will feature “an exclusive look at the newest character, Eleven.”

This all but confirms that Eleven will be the next character added to Street Fighter V during Season 5. According to Capcom’s roadmap for the game, we can expect Eleven to land in Fall 2021, following new characters Dan, Rose, Oro and Akira Kazama from Rival Schools.
Eleven has already featured in Street Fighter V during the character story of Urien, and the character is a pale shapeshifter developed by the in-game Secret Society. They served as a prototype of the character Twelve, who first appeared in Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike.
After Eleven, Street Fighter 5 will seemingly be content-complete – and with Capcom all but confirmed to be working on Street Fighter 6, it seems clear where the team’s attentions will be turned afterwards.
Back in August of 2020, veteran Street Fighter producer Yoshinori Ono left Capcom after almost 30 years.
