All-new Street Fighter 5 character Necalli revealed at EVO 2015

Street Fighter 5 will have four all-new characters, the first of whom was revealed today.


A new Street Fighter 5 trailer was livestreamed from EVO 2015, showing off new roster addition Necalli, whom you may have seen teased at the end of Ken's reveal trailer.

According to the PlayStation Blog, Necalli has a "mysterious background" and "utilizes a wild, animalistic fighting style to brutalize his opponents".

"There’s no finesse here as all of his attacks have been forged through the heat of battle to inflict maximum pain upon his opponents. However, beneath the surface of the crazed warrior lies a hidden genius that is unleashed upon V-Trigger activation," Capcom community manager Peter Rosas wrote.

"Players who enjoy a straight forward, hard hitting character will feel right at home with Necalli, as he possesses a wide variety of savage, close range attacks, as well as a command grab, all with the goal of demolishing his foes."

Necalli's V-Trigger move changes his hair colour and personality for a short time, giving him access to new combos, new frame data and even a new critical art. You can read a bit more about some of his revealed gameplay through the link above. For now, here's a trailer and a few images.




Street Fighter 5 hits PC and PS4 in March 2016, with 16 core characters and free-to-earn updates and DLC.
