Capcom has officially revealed this week that the Spanish Ninja himself, Vega, is returning to join the Street Fighter V fighter roster. You can check out the reveal trailer for Vega in the game in the player below.
In addition, Capcom revealed that Vega will be part of the playable build for Street Fighter V this week at Gamescom, which also includes the brand new character Necalli. Vega joins a roster that includes Necalli, Birdie, Nash, Ken, Chun-Li, Ryu, Cammy and M. Bison. Vega’s history in the franchise goes all the way back to Street Fighter II, when he appeared as one of the boss characters.
In Street Fighter V, Vega will have two distinct fighting modes as he will be able to fight with his trademark claw or without. The no-claw style for Vega gives him access to command grabs and new attack properties. Players can toggle between both styles. His V-Trigger move is the Bloody Kiss, which allows Vega to 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.
Street Fighter V is due out for a Spring 2016 release. The game will be released exclusively for the PlayStation 4 and Windows PC.
