Earlier today at PlayStation Experience (PSX) in San Francisco, Capcom revealed tons of new Street Fighter V details!

First up, the final character to be confirmed for the initial launch roster in Street Fighter V was revealed. Becoming the 16th challenger, F.A.N.G emerges from the shadows to take his self-proclaimed spot as the second in command of Shadaloo! When he’s not busy overseeing Shadaloo’s operations, he shows his passion through conducting evil experiments within Shadaloo’s research facility. His sinister long range attacks and slippery movements, paired with his ability to poison his opponents, is enough to leave his opponents feeling ill.

Capcom also confirmed today the names of the six challengers who will be added into Street Fighter V throughout 2016: Alex, Guile, Ibuki, Balrog, Juri and Urien. All of these characters are earnable through gameplay for free, but for those who can’t wait, they will also be available to purchase for instant access. More details on exact release timing for each of the characters will be shared next year.
