Capcom have posted the reveal trailer for Balrog as another playable character in the upcoming update to Street Fighter V.
The character first appeared in Street Fighter II, and in subsequent titles in the series. Originally based on a certain infamous boxer, Balrog packs punches unlike others – given that he does not have any kick attacks – with speed to match. He has always been a fan favourite, and along with Ibuki, and newer characters Urien and Juri will be playable from Friday. Characters are unlocked by either gameplay or a little of your hard-earned if you can’t wait.
In terms of style, it seems that Balrog has gained some new moves, and interesting combos. I for one am rather excited to try it out, along with the new story mode which is also coming in Friday’s update. And that bit is free.
