Street Fighter V – Zangief character Reveal
The Red Cyclone maintains his burly position on the Street Fighter lineup in Capcom’s latest reveal.
Series veteran Zangief remains an up-close grappler with the addition of some damage soaking abilities similar to SF IV’s focus attacks. The announcement trailer also shows off some quick jabss that provide opportunities to land his heavy-hitting special attacks, as The ‘Gief dismisses arials with a sharp elbow followed by a devastating air grab.
Pressure has always been a key part of Street Fighter’s battle mechanics and it looks like Zangief could be force to be feared in that regard.
Street Fighter V releases for PlayStation 4 and PC in Spring 2016.
