Capcom added another fighter to Street Fighter V during the keynote press conference of Sony’s PlayStation Experience this morning in San Francisco.
F.A.N.G. — a lithe, mustachioed man whose limbs could give Dhalsim’s a run for their money — was brought into the roster via an introductory trailer during the show. The deceptive and nebulous martial artist is the final launch character for the fighting game, releasing February 16 of next year. Series producer Yoshinori Ono said he was “happy about” being able to release a character without a leak.
Alex, Guile, Balrog, Ibuki, Juri, and Urien were also confirmed as the first six characters to be released post-launch.
