Vega Confirmed for Street Fighter V
The narcissistic Spanish ninja dons the mask and claw once again in this new trailer for Street Fighter V.
Capcom has formally announced that Vega is the latest character to return from the House of Shadaloo for Street Fighter V. Vega may have put on a shirt (I'm guessing shirtless Vega will be a paid DLC outfit), but he's still as fast and dangerous as he was before. Vega will have access to two different fighting styles: clawed (who I'll refer to as "Claude Vega") and claw-less. Claude Vega fights the same way we remember him. Claw-less Vega uses more command grabs. I have a feeling Claude will be able to swap between the two fighting styles on the fly, but we'll just have to wait and see.
Street Fighter V is going to launch with a total of 16 characters on its core roster, which includes four all-new fighters making their debuts. We should note that Street Fighter IV started off with a core roster of 19 combatants: Able, C. Viper, Rufus, El Fuerte, Seth, Gouken, Ryu, Ken, Chun-Li, E. Honda, Blanka, Zangief, Guile, Dhalsim, Balrog, Vega, Sagat, M. Bison and Akuma. So far, the only fighters revealed for Street Fighter V include Ryu, Ken, Chun-Li, Birdie, Cammy, M. Bison, Nash, Necalli and now Vega. This means we still have three new fighters to meet and four characters making their returns. For the returning fighters, our bets are on Blanka, Karen, R. Mika and some other classic character from Street Fighter II.
Street Fighter V will launch for PC and PS4 in the spring of 2016 with cross-play functionality between both versions.
