Street Fighter’s Claw wielding, vain fighter joins the roster of Street Fighter 5

Another fan favourite has been added to Street Fighter 5’s ever growing cast list, this time is the spanish claw fighter Vega. Capcom has released a new trailer (see above) to highlight some of the new tricks that he picked up against Street Fighter 5’s first original fighter¬†Necalli.

Capcom had this to say about the some of the new changes that we see in Vega’s fight style.

Vega brings with him a brand new set of tricks, as well as a new appearance. Still possessing his trademark speed and quickness, he now has access to two distinct fighting modes: claw or no-claw. With the no-claw style giving him access to command grabs as well as new attack properties, players will need to toggle between both styles to pull off that winning KO at the end of the fight. Vega’s powerful V-Trigger is the Bloody Kiss, which sees him throw a rose at high velocity towards his opponent, before he charges at full speed right behind it, delivering a series of brutal attacks. This Spanish matador is definitely a fighter to keep your eye on, if you can.

Capcom has recently confirmed that Street Fighter 5 will feature 16 fighters, and Vega’s announcement makes him the 9th confirmed. Both Vega and Necalli will be playable on the latest build of Street Fighter 5 which will be available at Gamescom this week.
