Last week during Games 15 event in Dubai, we got a glimpse of the latest new fighter for Street Fighter V. This new fighter is called Rashid, a middle eastern parkour expert who dashes about the arena in a flurry of wind. With a fast move speed and an erratic combat style, Rashid fills the space for the latest new character for the Street Fighter V nicely.
While not as initially ground shattering as Necalli’s reveal, Rashid fills in a nice role that El Fuerte left in Street Fighter IV as the lighting fast, air based combat user. The scouter in his character design could also be a nice little reference to Dragon Ball Z’s power levels.
Street Fighter V is set to release in Spring 2016 for PS4 and PC.
