During the Games 15 event in Dubai, Executive Producer Yoshinori Ono introduced the latest character coming to Street Fighter V, Rashid.
Rashid’s official description reads:
“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 unqiue 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.”
Rashid joins a cast already comprised of Ryu, Ken, Chun-Li, Cammy, Vega, M. Bison, Charlie Nash, Necalli, and R. Mika.
Street Fighter V is slated for a Q1 2016 release on PlayStation 4 and PC.
