First appearing in Street Fighter Alpha, he became a main part of that series before moving over to the newer games.

"Dan Hibiki is a training partner of Ryu and Ken, he considers himself well-equipped to “school” anyone who won’t back down.
Dan can be added to Street Fighter V rosters now with the Season 5 Character Pass or the Season 5 Premium Pass. He can also be acquired separately. See below for Season 5 Pass details."

V-Shift

A brand new mechanic called V-Shift will be added as part of the Season 5 update.

It "provides players with all-new defensive options and strategies. Costing just one bar of V-Gauge, when timed correctly, V-Shift allows players to execute a fully invincible backdash that slows down time for a short period, helping fighters better plan their counter-attacks."

New Training Stage

In addition, all players can now acquire a new training stage called “The Grid Alternative” for free, as well as an updated battle balance for all playable characters, adding even more gameplay depth and enhancements to the game’s combat system.
