Street Fighter V Producer Yoshinori Ono said during an interview at the Taipei Game Show 2015 that Capcom is considering community feedback for Street Fighter V’s roster and returning characters. According to a translation of Famitsu by Shoryuken, Ono wants to keep the roster small in order to maintain low development costs and to make it easier for newcomers to hop on board.

Currently, Street Fighter V has three confirmed characters: Ryu, Chun-Li, and Charlie Nash. According to Ono, Charlie Nash is back by popular demand as fans have been asking for his return since Street Fighter III. He said that the developer couldn’t have Charlie and Guile in the same game due to their similarities.
