It's time to reveal the last character that will be part of the Street Fighter V roster when the game launches in March 2016.
As announced during the PlayStation Experience, his name is F.A.N.G. and he's second in command in M. Bison's Shadaloo organization.
You can check out the debut character trailer below; he uses a bizarre form of kung fu and Capcom describes him as "an assassin whose unique poison attacks leave him second only to M. Bison himself." The developer added in a statement:
"Besides overseeing Shadaloo’s operations, his true passion comes from the evil experiments conducted within Shadaloo’s research facilities. F.A.N.G introduces a series first mechanic; poison. Whenever his poison attacks connect, they continuously deal damage to the opponent’s life bar until he gets hit or the poison runs its course. F.A.N.G’s sinister long range attacks and slippery movements, paired with his ability to poison, will leave his opponents feeling ill."
F.A.N.G. has a V-Skill called Nishodoku, which involves a poison-laden projectile; his V-Trigger is Dokunomu, which creates a poison cloud around his body that deals damage to any opponent that gets too close. Sounds like a seriously tough customer!
