Capcom has revealed another Street Fighter 5 character and it’s Zangief which should please fans of Mother Russia’s Iron Cyclone.

Previous appearances from the wrestler include Street Fighter 2, Street Fighter Alpha 2 and 3, and Street Fighter 4.

Zangief’s V-Skill is Iron Muscle and his new V-Trigger is called Cyclone Lariat.

Iron Muscle allows him to absorb one attack leaving him with recoverable health. With Cyclone Lariat, he “spins with high speed and velocity, pulling the opponent in close.”

You can find out more information on Zangief’s moves through Capcom Unity.

There are three characters left to reveal, and we’ll keep an eye out for those announcements.

Street Fighter 5 will be released during spring 2016 on PC and PS4.
