Capcom has announced everyone’s favorite Russian wrestler Zangief, will be in the lineup for Street Fighter V. In a trailer released early Thursday, you can see the tough and tumble character perform some of his signature moves in full motion. The one minute montage shows Zangief punching, kicking, grappling, performing combos, showing off some signature moves like a spinning lariat and pile driver.
More recent Street Fighter players may recognize some of his newer SFIV abilities like his Red Focus, giving him the ability to absorb some damage to become even stronger. It’s not a huge surprise this classic character will be added to the game’s roster, but it is pretty great to see the game in action once again.
Anyone interested can participate in the Street Fighter V Beta with a pre-order, and can expect the full retail version to be available in the first half of 2016 with cross-play between PC and PS4.
David is a lover of all things nerdy & geeky! (Nerd IS the new cool after all!)
From the wee age of 6 he made his way to a Canadian Tire, purchased a SNES for $200 in in-store credit money (Canadian Tire money for Canadians out there), and hasn’t looked back!
He loves the classics like Donkey Kong, Mario, and Diablo, but is deep into the new age of gaming with Heroes of the Storm, EA’s NHL series, Destiny, and indies like Fez, Thomas Was Alone, and Mark of the Ninja.
