The characters that appear are generally from Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light and Fire Emblem Awakening, as well as Fire Emblem Fates. This won’t be a gathering of the protagonists from across the series.
Oi oi oi, new GHB coming soon.
(LLoyd looks like a background character from AoT with a dash of Nomura syndrome. Don't like it myself.)
We are happy to announce the third Season 2 Street Fighter V character, Ed. As mentioned in our previous blogpost about the next CFN Beta, Ed and all previously released characters will be playable for all beta participants for the duration of the test.
At a young age, Ed was kidnapped and experimented on by S.I.N., a division of Shadaloo, in order to become a replacement body for M. Bison. Many of you might remember a young Ed appearing in Rose’s Street Fighter IV story and Balrog’s story in Super Street Fighter IV. Due to the experiments, Ed’s body ages faster than normal humans until they are old enough to be suited for battle. Since Balrog raised Ed, his fighting is centered on boxing but since he carries M. Bison’s genes, his fighting style is enhanced by Psycho Power.
Night after night he is troubled by Bison's ghost, and struggles desperately to prevent M. Bison from possessing his body. Be sure to check out his character story to find out more!
V-Skill: Psycho Snatcher
Ed releases Psycho Power from his palm, pulling himself or opponents depending on how long he charges it up.
V-Trigger: Psycho Cannon
With a full V-meter, Ed releases an enormous amount of Psycho Power. He can follow alongside it, allowing him to pepper in shots when it connects with the opponent.
Critical Art: Psycho Barrage
Ed lunges forward with a series of punches. If at any point he connects, he’ll continue weaving around the opponent, slipping in quick combinations of Psycho-punches ending with a powerful uppercut.
What makes Ed especially unique is how players perform his special moves. His special moves have simple inputs; they only require simultaneous button presses, repeatedly pressing a button, or holding down a button. Only Ed’s Critical Art is done by inputting a traditional motion.
Also coming alongside Edare his Story and Premium Battle costumes.
I'm actually quite disappointed. It would have been great to finally have a teenage boy as an SF fighter. He just looks like Charlie with a bad haircut now.
Dude, he kinda must look like teenager, because, you know... he IS teenager. How could he just right after he appeared in Story Mode grow up into adult?
