Street Fighter V reveals new character Necalli

Watch him go Super Saiyan and beat the snot out of Ken.

Street Fighter V - Necalli

Necalli is the first of four characters brand new to the Street Fighter universe joining Street Fighter V, Capcom announced at EVO in Las Vegas.

Here’s Necalli’s full outline, via the PlayStation Blog:

Hailing from a mysterious background, Necalli utilizes a wild, animalistic fighting style to brutalize his opponents. There’s no finesse here as all of his attacks have been forged through the heat of battle to inflict maximum pain upon his opponents. However, beneath the surface of the crazed warrior lies a hidden genius that is unleashed upon V-Trigger activation. Players who enjoy a straight forward, hard hitting character will feel right at home with Necalli, as he possesses a wide variety of savage, close range attacks, as well as a command grab, all with the goal of demolishing his foes.

V-Skill: Culminated Power

Necalli pounds the ground with both fists, creating an explosion from the ground that damages the opponent. By holding the joystick left, right or leaving it at neutral, players can control the distance the explosion travels, allowing him to pressure opponents from afar.

V-Trigger: Torrent of Power

Necalli channels a mysterious energy that warps his hair color and completely changes his personality for a short period of time. While in his powered up state, he gains access to new combos, new frame data, and even a new Critical Art!

The many mysteries surrounding the character’s origin and storyline will be revealed in due time, so stay tuned for more information!

Necalli joins previously announced characters Ryu, Chun-Li, M. Bison, Birdie, Nash, Cammy, and Ken.

Street Fighter V is due out for PlayStation 4 and PC in spring 2016. A PlayStation 4 beta will begin on July 23.
