There have been some heavily anticipated returns for Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition over the past year. However, Cody Travers has been one of the most heavily-hyped returns in the game's life cycle so far. Part of it involves his updated lore, which now places him as the new Mayor of Metro City. Another part involves further incorporation of his Final Fight move set.

With Cody officially hitting the Street Fighter V roster today, Shacknews is here with a basic listing of some of his moves.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
