Announced today during the annual Street Fighterpanel at San Diego Comic-Con, a new character has joined the exclusive Street Fighter V roster.

Ken, the master of the flaming Shoryuken, has just been confirmed. One of the key protagonists in the legendary Street Fighter series, Ken brings an array of new abilities to Street Fighter V, where his tricky mix-ups and flashy combos have the ability to bewilder opponents and deal huge damage. Ken joins the six previously-announced characters Ryu, Chun-Li, Charlie Nash, M. Bison, Cammy and Birdie, with plenty more new and returning characters still to come.

V-Skill: Quick Step

Ken runs towards the opponent, closing the distance in an instant. Ken can also choose to step kick or input another attack closer to the end of his run!

V-Trigger: Heat Rush

Ken channels flames through his entire body for a short period of time, which powers up his special attacks, by increasing their number of hits and improving their trajectory, allowing him to perform even more damaging combos.

While the Spring 2016 release date is still miles away, stay tuned as there will be more Street Fighter V announcements very soon. Maybe as soon as… next week? According to the Capcom blog. Be sure to tune into www.twitch.tv/capcomfighters next weekend July 17~19 as the biggest fighting game tournament in the world, EVO 2015 Starts!
