Capcom has revealed a new character for Street Fighter V at EVO 2015, named Necalli. Necalli which can be viewed in the trailer below, is a newcomer to the Street Fighter series, and appears to be quite interesting, as he possesses a transformation which turns him into a more deadly “fiery” version of his former self.

Street Fighter V will launch with 16 playable characters with additional post-launch characters being earnable for free through playing the game

Street Fighter V will launch with a core roster of 16 playable characters, with 4 of them being brand new fighters to the Street Fighter universe. New characters will be added on a continuous basis, with every post-launch character released being earnable for free through gameplay.

Capcom will be introducing an in-game economy to Street Fighter V. There are two types of currency that make the economy go round:

Fight Money

This is basic currency that players earn through playing the game. Once players accumulate enough Fight Money, they can use it to earn new post-launch gameplay content, such as characters, for free!


This is premium currency that players can purchase with real money to immediately gain access to post-launch content.

The upcoming beta phases will  be used to test the economy and ensure it works in a fair way for everyone.

In addition, Capcom will be performing the largest and most ambitious online beta program in franchise history on both the PlayStation 4 and PC platforms. In North America, players who pre-order the game will automatically be enrolled into the beta program.

Street Fighter V is built on the Unreal Engine 4 and will be releasing on the PlayStation 4 and PC in Q1 2016. We will bring you any new information on Street Fighter V, as soon as it becomes available.
