Capcom has officially announced the newest Season 2 DLC character for Street Fighter 5, Ed.
Click to see the trailer and additional info.
Here is a more in-depth look on Ed’s V-Skill, V-Trigger, and Critical Art.
V-Skill: Psycho Snatcher
Ed releases Psycho Power from his palm, pulling himself or opponents depending on how long he charges it up.
V-Trigger: Psycho Cannon
With a full V-meter, Ed releases an enormous amount of Psycho Power. He can follow alongside it, allowing him to pepper in shots when it connects with the opponent.
Critical Art: Psycho Barrage
Ed lunges forward with a series of punches. If at any point he connects, he’ll continue weaving around the opponent, slipping in quick combinations of Psycho-punches ending with a powerful uppercut.
Here are some stills of the story and premium costumes that are coming with Ed.
I gotta say, I had my doubts about the look, but his fighting style looks pretty cool. Like a mash up of two of my favorite Street Fighter characters, M.Bison and Balrog. He looks like he will play a lot like Balrog, but will also weaves in his version of Psycho Power and kicks. I am really digging how he appears to play.
Aesthetically, I’m not a huge fan of the one shoulder pad look, but his story and battle costume look pretty cool. Also, I could have done without another blonde in Street Fighter.
At about 0:25 seconds in to the trailer, we get a look at Ed’s V-Reversal. It appears to be like Rashid’s where he switches sides.
Ed’s V-Skill looks interesting, providing two different ways to close gaps.
It looks like Ed’s V-Trigger is a lot like Decapre’s from Ultra Street Fighter IV.
Ed’s Critical Art looks awesome and brutal. Almost like a slowed down version of Akuma’s Raging demon.
And remember, if you want to try out Ed before deciding to purchase him, you can do so in the upcoming beta.
