Street Fighter V (PC, PS4) Necalli Announcement - Screenshot 1

Capcom announced the latest addition to Street Fighter V during Evo 2015. Unlike the previous reveals, this one is new to the series: Necalli. A brawler that possesses “a wide variety of savage and close range attacks,” Necalli’s V-Skill engages a damaging ground pound, while his V-Trigger channels an energy through him that changes his appearance and alters his personality. Capcom also revealed their DLC plans for Street Fighter V. All post-launch gameplay content will be unlockable through gameplay or purchasable, whichever the player prefers. And in breaking with franchise tradition, all balance changes, system adjustments, and upgrades will be free—no more Ultra, Arcade, Hyper, or Championship Edition shenanigans. Check below for a new trailer and a handful of new screenshots.
