Fan favourite Sakura will be a playable character in the home console version of upcoming Capcom beat-em-up Street Fighter 4, magazine scans have revealed.

The latest issue of Japanese mag Famitsu, as reported by Kotaku, reveals the addition to the game, expected some time next year on the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.

The magazine also reveals that the console version will include a training mode to help players hone their skills. I won't need that, of course.

Cammy, Fei Long, Dan and Gouken have also been confirmed as playable characters for the home version of the game. Anyone else you'd like to see Capcom add to the roster, readers?
