Grovel Before M. Bison’s Psycho Power In SFV

At this point, most Street Fighter V [official site] character reveals are met with more relief than surprise as fans confirm the existence of their favourite fighters in the latest version of the game. M. Bison has been in practically every new edition since Street Fighter II and yet here we are, watching his addition to the roster be unvealed in a new trailer, as if it wasn’t already a sure thing. I mean, we’re not even 100% certain Ken will be invited to the fight this time. He will be though. Right? Right…

The M. Bison reveal trailer shows off his Psycho Power, which looks to have received something of an upgrade, as he pummels Charlie Nash into a nearby bus. Nash’s inclusion in Street Fighter V was a surprise, as this will be his first appearance outside of the Alpha series. The only other characters confirmed for Street Fighter V are Ryu and Chun Li.

There will be plenty more fighter reveals in the run up to the game’s release, which is due sometime before April 2016. Street Fighter V on PC will support cross-platform play with the PlayStation 4 version too.

    FrankenCharlie looks very B-movie ish. Not that SF has ever been subtle. Tis just an odd choice of symbolism for “back from the dead” to go full-on half-inch-thick stitches and green skin, y’know? But it’s nice to see him back all the same.

    Looks like the old guy learned new tricks and remembered some of the old ones from the alpha/zero series, that’s nice!

    looks like they are going back to alpha/zero for references and that’s a good thing, lots of good stuff to bring to the new engine! looking good.

    not so fond of the “terrain” stuff but whatever…

    Bring back Alpha 3’s World Tour Mode dammit!

    Stages look really busy and distracting to me, but Bison is sure looking fun to play. First character I’ve seen so far in 5 that has me excited, so far I’ve been pretty unimpressed otherwise.
