Capcom reveals first new Street Fighter V character

Jul 19 // Kyle MacGregor
[embed]296312:59602:0[/embed] Here's the full rundown on Capcom's latest creation, straight from the horse's mouth: "Possessing a wide variety of savage and close range attacks, all of Necalli’s moves have been forged through the heat of battle to ensure he’s inflicting maximum pain upon his opponents.  "Making full use of the Battle System mechanics, Necalli’s V-Skill allows him to pound the ground with both fists, creating an explosion that damages the enemy whereas the powerful V-Trigger allows him to channel a mysterious energy that changes his hair colour and alters his personality for a short period of time." Capcom says to expect more information on Necalli's origin and storyline in the coming months. Street Fighter V is coming to PlayStation 4 and PC next spring. The first beta is taking place later this week exclusively on PlayStation Network. You can find more details regarding that right here.
