What a goof
You saw Zangief's Street Fighter V introduction trailer. Now let's look at a bunch of pictures of him with his mouth agape and one incredible shot in which he has the flesh tone of a hotdog.
This game makes for a pretty good gallery.
That'd be a cute name for a kitten
Capcom's really picking its spots for Street Fighter V character announcements. Zangief has been officially revealed for the game at IgroMir Expo 2015 in, you guessed it, Russia.

I'm rusty since playing her in Alpha 3
I couldn't be happier with the injection of all things Alpha into Street Fighter V. I had the chance to talk to a Capcom representative about it lately, and they were in complete agreement, hinting that perhaps there will be more to come in terms of the Alpha comparisons. Excellent.
Having said that, it took me a few rounds to acclimate to Karin. Hot damn am I rusty with her!
Hands-on with Street Fighter V
Street Fighter V has been pretty well received by the fighting game community, and it's not even slated to come out until early 2016. I enjoyed my time with the beta, and now, I got my hands on the latest build here at TGS, which includes a playable Rashid.
I certainly didn't expect it, but I may have found a new main.
Playable at TGS
Street Fighter V is looking more and more alpha every week, as I noted in my recent preview for Rashid. Capcom has just announced that Karin will be joining the cast, a character that fans have been wanting to return for quit...

There were upsets and heart-breakers, but most importantly hundreds of hours of the highest-level fighting games. Games featured today were Ultra Street Fighter IV, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Super Smash Bros. Melee, Mortal Kombat X, and Guilty Gear: Xrd -SIGN-.
Today at EVO 2015, just before kicking off the final round of Ultra Street Fighter IV competitions, Capcom unveiled the first of four new fighters joining the roster of Street Fighter V.
His name is Necalli, a wild-looking grappler who -- Aw hell, just watch the damn trailer.
