Capcom is pleased to announce that Vega, the Spanish Ninja, will be joining the Street Fighter V roster. Capcom has released a new trailer at Gamescom and new screenshots to the press. Attendees at gamescom this week will be able to see the claw himself in action with a brand new playable build available at the Sony Booth in Hall 7 Booth C-020. The build will also include the recently announced new challenger, Necalli, along with returning characters Birdie and Nash, in addition to fan favorites Ken, Chun-Li, Ryu, Cammy and M. Bison.
Vega brings with him a brand new set of tricks, as well as a new appearance. Still possessing his trademark speed and quickness, he now has access to two distinct fighting modes: claw or no-claw. With the no-claw style giving him access to command grabs as well as new attack properties, players will need to toggle between both styles to pull off that winning KO at the end of the fight. Vega’s powerful V-Trigger is the Bloody Kiss, which sees him throw a rose at high velocity towards his opponent, before he charges at full speed right behind it, delivering a series of brutal attacks. This Spanish matador is definitely a fighter to keep your eye on, if you can.
Old faithfuls will definitely be happy to see Vega in Street Fighter V. Honestly, can you have Street Fighter without Vega, and other main characters like Chun Li, Ken, Ryu, etc. ? I think not. Just like we can’t have this announcement without a bunch of new screenshots. Enjoy, and stay tuned for more Street Fighter V info as it becomes available.
