Cody Travers Returns to Street Fighter with a New Character Trailer

Fans of Final Fight and Street Fighter Alpha 3 are about to have a field day as Capcom officially revealed that Cody Travers has returned to the series in Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition, and he looks handsome as hell! The news dropped early this morning as the company posted his reveal and let fans know he would be available in the game starting on June 26th for either a $4 download or immediately on that date with your Season Pass.
