Street Fighter V ‘Ken’ Reveal Trailer
Ryu’s best friend and rival, Ken Masters is making his return in Capcom’s upcoming fighting game, Street Fighter V, the developer announced during their Street Fighter V San Diego Comic-Con panel.
“One of the key protagonists in the legendary Street Fighter series, Ken brings an array of new abilities to Street Fighter V, where his tricky mix-ups and flashy combos have the ability to bewilder opponents and deal huge damage.
Ken joins the six previously-announced characters Ryu, Chun-Li, Charlie Nash, M. Bison, Cammy and Birdie, with plenty more new and returning characters still to come.”
Ken’s V-Skill and V-Trigger detailed:
V-Skill: Quick Step
Ken runs towards the opponent, closing the distance in an instant. Ken can also choose to step kick or input another attack closer to the end of his run!
V-Trigger: Heat Rush
Ken channels flames through his entire body for a short period of time, which powers up his special attacks by increasing their number of hits and improving their trajectory, allowing him to perform even more damaging combos.
Street Fighter V is set to be released in early 2016 for PC and PS4.
