F.A.N.G. rounds out the Street Fighter V roster at PlayStation Experience

The final launch character for Street Fighter V was revealed at PlayStation Experience. He's Bison's newest second-in-command, the gangly F.A.N.G.


A year ago, Capcom revealed Street Fighter V to a captive PlayStation Experience audience. This year, the publisher returned to reveal the game's next character, an all-new character named F.A.N.G.

A gangly, sunglasses-donning warrior, F.A.N.G. could be seen using his wiry frame to his advantage. He's also billed as the second-in-command at Shadaloo, making him Bison's newest lieutenant. After the trailer reveal, Yoshinori Ono and Peter 'Combofiend' Rosas took the stage to confirm that this will be the final launch character before Street Fighter V releases in February.

The roster of post-launch characters has also been revealed. They are Alex, Ibuki, and Urien from Street Fighter III; Guile and Balrog from Street Fighter II; and Juri from Street Fighter IV.

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?
