Two New Characters Added to Street Fighter V Roster, Beta Program and Release Timing Detailed
Here come TWO new challengers! Announced today at the Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. press conference, as part of the 2015 Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), Capcom has confirmed the additions of Cammy and Birdie to the esteemed Street Fighter V lineup. Both characters will make their return to the Street Fighter universe, where they join previously-announced classic characters Ryu, Chun-Li, Charlie Nash, and M. Bison. Many more new and returning characters will be added to the diverse roster, offering a wide variety of fighting styles for players to choose from.
Cammy has been a staple of the Street Fighter series since her debut in Super Street Fighter II, and returns faster and stronger than ever before in the upcoming Street Fighter V. Utilizing a wide variety of quick ground and aerial attacks to pressure her opponents, her rush down style will suit offensive minded players of all types. Birdie makes his long awaited return, having last appeared in theStreet Fighter Alpha series over 10 years ago. Completely redesigned and reimagined, Birdie's "larger than life" look masks the fierce power packed into his long range chain attacks and up-close command grabs, making him a threat from every distance.
A new trailer and new screens showcasing Cammy and Birdie in action in Street Fighter V is available now. Additionally, a trailer highlighting the new battle system was released last week, so make sure to check out everything on www.capcomeuro-press.com
