Capcom has recently shown off a new fighter for the Street Fighter V roster. This character, who goes by the name of Rashid, was revealed during the Games 15 event in Dubai, where Yoshinori Ono took the stage to show him off. Attendees at the event were then allowed to try out a new demo starring Rashid and the previously announced challengers: Ryu, Ken, Chun-Li, Cammy, Vega, M. Bison, Birdie, Charlie Nash, Necalli and R. Mika.
Here’s the official reveal trailer:
Here’s Rashid’s quick bio, as presented on the official press release:
Joining the series from the Middle East, Rashid is an easy going and laid back character that has a very keen interest in technology and the latest gadgets on the market. His fighting style takes cues from parkour and he mixes it up with his unique ability to harness the power of wind. Always first in line to buy new tech, he uses these devices to research and create his fast-paced acrobatic moves, leaving his opponents in the dust and wondering what’s coming next.
And finally, here are some screens showing him in action:
How well will Rashid fare amongst the rest of the Street Fighter V cast?
